With a wildly successful social media platform and a content production company between them, it's safe to say the Zuckerberg siblings know a thing or two about entrepreneurship. One of her tips: start Googling. Zuckerberg is currently starring on Oxygen's entrepreneurship-focused reality show "Quit Your Day Job," where she and three fellow investors pick between prospective business projects.
Two of the technology industry's most powerful leaders are at odds when it comes to artificial intelligence. Facebook Chief Mark Zuckerberg on Sunday called Musk's dire warnings overblown and described himself as "optimistic." "People who are naysayers and try to drum up these doomsday scenarios -- I don't understand it," Zuckerberg said while taking questions via a Facebook Live broadcast.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has vowed to develop new privacy-shielding messaging services as the social network comes under increasing pressure over its handling of user data. The tech giant and its leadership have faced intense scrutiny to prove Facebook's commitment to privacy. "Frankly we don't currently have a strong reputation for building privacy protective services, and we've historically focused on tools for more open sharing," Zuckerberg wrote, in a blog post on Wednesday. "But we've repeatedly shown that we can evolve to build the services that people really want, including in private messaging and stories."
SAN FRANCISCO -- Mark Zuckerberg would not retain his iron grip on Facebook should he leave the giant social network under a proposal from the board of directors. The Facebook board is asking shareholders to vote on the proposal that would deny Zuckerberg voting control if he is no longer running Facebook at the annual meeting on June 20. The proposal would ensure "that we will not remain a founder-controlled company after we cease to be a founder-led company," the board said in a filing. Under the current agreement, Zuckerberg would be able to exercise voting control even if leaves the company. Zuckerberg would also be allowed to pass on those shares, and conceivably his majority voting control, to his descendants after he dies.
Mark Zuckerberg has willed himself into becoming a global phenomenon. Facebook is a nearly 16,000-employee media powerhouse worth $350 billion and also an advertising-technology juggernaut on track for annual revenues of $27 billion in 2016 and gaudy profits of $7 billion. Its core product has almost 1.8 billion users, and Zuckerberg has shrewdly assembled a portfolio of properties to buttress Facebook. Zuckerberg is rightly recognized for his outsize success. Nevertheless, he is surprisingly underappreciated for his business acumen.
