Mark Zuckerberg: just a technology guru?

Mark Zuckerberg is not your typical CEO. After watching an interview of him, I’m utterly surprised at how he made it so far because he doesn’t sound like he has a lot of business sense, nor does he have the presence that makes people listen to him and in fact he doesn’t look like a people person at all. I’m sure he is very good in his area of expertise being computing and a very smart and talented university drop out. But having a high IQ doesn’t equate to knowledge and I don’t think age is the issue here.

So how the hell did he get to be named Person of the Year 2010 by TIME with a net worth of $6.9 billion? If he is just a computer geek, no wonder he came up with the idea of interacting with people virtually instead of face to face. But how did he get his company to grow so much in the past 6 years? We know it wasn’t pure luck, and according to the movie Social Networks, which I don’t even know if it is meant to be based on a true story, he had help from an entrepreneur. But I have doubts on how he can continue his position as CEO with his personality and background as the business continues to grow faster than one can predict. So my suggestion for you is continue being a user all you want but not an investor, just yet. Maybe he will step down as CEO one day and just be CTO instead as that seems like a more suitable fit.
