How Mark Zuckerberg became a wartime CEO

In April 2011, Ben Horowitz wrote a popular blog post about war and business. There are two types of CEOs and co-founders of Andreessen Horowitz. Eric Schmidt has one of the best-expressed "peaceful" CEOs in Google's first decade. There is an "exhibition" CEO who is facing an existential threat. Google CEO Larry Page was the CEO of the show and, along with the succession of Facebook, claimed that Page should adopt a more militant way of thinking. Horowitz writes:

In times of peace, leaders must maximize and expand their present opportunities. As a result, peacetime leaders use technology to encourage a wide range of creativity and contribution through as many different goals as possible. By contrast, exhibits have only one bullet in the showroom and must cover all costs. The survival of the company's exhibits depends on strict adherence and mission coordination.

Seven years later, the CEO of Facebook faced an existential threat and read Ben Horowitz. Deepa Seetharaman over the weekend in the Wall Street Journal :

Mark Zuckerberg said that by the early of this year, he had gathered about 50 top supporters, saying that Facebook was at war and plans to lead the company accordingly.

During times of peace, executives could move more slowly and, depending on those who were accustomed to speaking at the June meeting, so that everyone could make a major decision. But he said that with Facebook, surrounded by lawmakers, investors and angry users, he needs to act more firmly.

Since Zuckerberg made such a statement, the war on Facebook has become more intense. Alex Jones had an argument. There was a data leak. Last week there was a fake news scandal by Definers. The call for Zuckerberg to become president, or even CEO, is getting bigger in the short term, even if there is little such movement.

But hold the General for a while. What is his best distributor? According to sources, Sheryl Sandberg has received a dressing down in spring of Cambridge Analytica's personal information infringement scandal,

This spring, Zuckerberg told Sandberg. Journal aged 49, is a research analyst who uses politics to improperly access personal data about Cambridge analysts and Facebook users, according to people familiar with the exchange, I was accused of.

Sandberg later wondered if she needed to worry about her job as friends listened to her.

Sandberg issued mea culpa to employees on Friday for hire of the definers. Employees portrayed Facebook as flattering and criticizing their enemies as "in-house fake news shops" to spread to the media ecosystem. Mike Isaac reports:

Ms. Sandberg, who attended the session, added, "I totally accept the responsibility for Definers," according to two people familiar with the conversation. "It's up to me."

This story is unprecedented in one of the most famous partnerships in the tech world. Sandberg, who is considered natural for transforming Facebook business into a global giant, has not found himself defensively for a long period of time. And I can not recall that the word is afraid of being leaked and being fired.

As I read the story of Journal I wonder who Sandberg's anecdote has helped. And the answer that I kept coming back – everyone involved. In the case of Zuckerberg, the exhibition CEO takes responsibility. In Sandberg, the Chief Operating Officer (COO) is responsible for her mistakes (lightly!) And delivers ideas that make her more respectful. On Facebook, it shows the company acting decisively in times of trouble.

Of course, it would be best if was not . Tension between CEO and COO. But Facebook can easily put them into productive tensions to achieve a very open goal of fixing the company. Zuckerberg said last week that Sandberg "is a very important partner to me" and will continue to be and will continue.

It was a long time before Facebook to rethink its communications strategy, though it was fictional in June, led by Elliot Schrage.

This strategy, born out of Washington politics, has been championed by Schrage, Sandberg and policy director Joel Kaplan, who has been criticized internally for focusing on crisis communication, bipartisan politics, and occasional stain campaigns.

The disadvantages of this strategy seemed to be the deepest in the company's product sector, why only a handful of them have become bad, and this year, Explain that they have implemented their own communications strategy. Product executives, including Andrew Bosworth and Adam Mosseri, began direct contact with reporters on Twitter, providing frank insight into a variety of topics.

The story is now being overseen by Sandberg, and I have noticed that criticism of the COO, a person who could never compromise in technology last week, was suddenly much more publicly documented But the more I plan on Zuckerberg's future, the more important Sandberg I see. Whatever her flaws are, he runs daily work while planning a road in a very turbulent industry. She is rather a policy and communication organization that wants to delegate to others Manage.

Sandberg is reputation. Currently Facebook to do anything for money, and her favorite is needed more than Facebook Facebook peacetime there would have been difficult to find a new Facebook COO.

Democracy

Now eight lawmakers are calling for an answer to Zuckerberg's Facebook scandal.

More efforts are needed for policy and communication teams.

Facing the pressure that Facebook's founder must accept.
