From a child developer to a self-made billionaire, this is Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg for you. Everybody knows how rapidly did Facebook grow and here is a fact- every good plan needs a good execution and that's what happened to Facebook, and the man behind all the execution is Mark Zuckerberg. With Facebook doing extremely well in everything it enters, the business skills of this man deserve an applause.
Reading all this, you must be imagining Mark as a perfect businessman but trust me, he is not as perfect as he seems to be. He does have some bad habits and on this special day of his (33rd birthday), we are presenting you some of those that you surely didn't see coming.
Facebook's recent introduction of VR space in F8 event (Facebook Developer event) is a solid proof of Mark's belief in VR- future tech. Facebook is also focusing on Oculus which brings the video experience to the next level.
Mark will also be launching Facebook TV next month to target Netflix and Amazon Prime, which reportedly features VR-based videos.
VR is no doubt an addictive tech and the fact that Mark is making a market for it is appreciable.
Bad Habit: For the people who love tech and wish to own the latest of the tech products, it is this bad habit of Mark that makes the life tough for them.
Facebook recently made some huge changes whether it is the introduction of suicide prevention tool, fake news tool, or Porn prevention tool. Mark is trying his best to make Facebook safe for the community. Mark has already stated the importance of Facebook in its audience's life.
Bad Habit: This is counted as a bad habit only by those who are insensible enough to upload fake news, add adult videos and use Facebook for other malicious things.
Facebook is continuously making changes in its UI, especially since the past 6 months or so. Users have seen some major changes, welcoming some while hating the other minor changes like Friends feed, which shows the activity of Facebook friends.
Bad Habit: UI changes are highly irritating for the people who don't believe in sharing their feelings and feel continuously bugged by Facebook's updates that force them to express more.
Mark Zuckerberg has this vision to bring the whole world on the internet, and his vision is taking shape as well, with the help of Internet.org, FreeBasics, and newly introduced Wi-Fi hotspot service called Express Wi-Fi. Yes, bringing people on the internet will definitely help Facebook to make a wider reach but the fact that everyone can access the internet on the palm is helpful in a certain way too.
Bad Habit: For those companies which wanted to suck on people's money by introducing expensive plans, this is a bad habit of Mark Zuckerberg to keep pushing his dream of making it free.
Facebook bought Instagram back in 2012, to get Snapchat out of the market. It didn't end just here as later on, it bought WhatsApp in 2014, which seemed to be a threat to Facebook Messenger. The list of small tech companies bought by Facebook is long enough.
Bad Habit: For the other social apps which are dominated by Instagram when it comes to *stories,* this surely is a bad habit of Mark Zuckerberg.
"Books make man wiser"
This isn't about Facebook but Mark, who is a big book buff and the world knows it well. There is an online book club which is hosted by Mark himself for all the book lovers in the world. In 2015, Mark took a book challenge to read a new book every other week.
Bad Habit: For the people who don't want him to get any wise.
Mark showed his personal self-developed AI Jarvis in a video on his personal profile on Facebook. His concentration on AI shows the importance of AI in human life as well as its importance on Facebook in upcoming days. Users may also see AI implementation in the near future.
Stop replacing us with AI.
Bad Habit: For the people who are afraid that AI can get more intelligent than them.
In a statement given by Priscilla Chan, wife of Mark Zuckerberg, she stated that she has a "relationship contract" signed by Mark, asking for "at least one date a week", the promise is well kept by Mark so far.
Also according to reports, Mark works for 50-60 hours a week though every second must be productive.
Bad Habit: Counted as a bad habit for the people who mis-manage their work and personal life all the time.
These bad habits of Mark Zuckerberg are actually good habits for some. Everything depends on the way we see them.
