Public funds that own shares of Facebook, made a proposal to suspend Mark Zuckerberg from the position of head of the Board of Directors of the company.

The proposal was also joined by the treasurers of the States of Illinois, Rhode island and Pennsylvania, and the auditor of the city of new York.

The offer will make up for discussion during a meeting of shareholders in may 2019.

Zuckerberg is accused of that he did a bad job with the management of Facebook during the scandal with the leak of user data.

Managing social network is built in such a way that Zuckerberg is the Director of Facebook, and Chairman of its Board.

For the resignation of Zuckerberg voted by the majority investors of the company at the last two meetings. One of them Zuckerberg was accused that he runs the company like a “dictator.” Of the shareholder which nominated the charges, was expelled from the meeting.

Zuckerberg is actually a dictator?

In September 2018 the New Yorker magazine published a great article about Zuckerberg.

It tells that in 2017 Zuckerberg went on tour in America — performed and met with people in different States.

With him went the photographer who shot it, feeding the animals, preparing the barbecue and works on the Assembly line. The Internet immediately began to joke that in these photos, Zuckerberg looks like an alien. As said one of the people involved in the organization of the home environment Zuckerberg realized that it looks silly, but “nobody wanted to talk about the Brand.”

A similar story of working inside the Facebook. As the familiar saying Zuckerberg when he doesn’t agree, he finds a loophole to find fault with the argument of the opponent, and inflates its scope. From the presentations that subordinates show the founder of the company, gradually disappeared slides about the bad. “He wants to hear only good news. He doesn’t need people who disagree with him,” says a former employee of Facebook.

The biggest scandal

Recall about the biggest scandal in the history of Facebook.

Using the application This is Your digital life, created by a Cambridge University Professor of Russian origin, Alexander Kogan, has collected the personal information of 87 million users.

In violation of the rules of Facebook, the data was transferred to a third party – Cambridge Analytica, founded by billionaire Robert Mercer. These data were used in the election campaign of the candidate in presidents of the United States Donald trump for analysis of political preferences.

Zuckerberg had to apologize for leaking data on special sessions of the U.S. Congress and the European Parliament. When he came to Congress he was the scenario the answer to the question, not whether he should quit Facebook. The script looked like this: “I founded the company. Decisions. Made mistakes. This is a big challenge, but we have already solved the problem and resolve this. Already working.”

Because of the scandal, shares of Facebook fell by 24% immediately after the closing of the main trades in the United States. Quarterly financial report of the company was worse than the expectations of most analysts.

It turns out the owners of Facebook stock lost in just a few minutes a total of about $ 150 billion.

The problems

The scandal with the leak of the data – no problem Zuckerberg. Investigating the UK’s Channel 4 showed that the moderators of Facebook often save on the website materials with scenes of violence against children, racism and violence to attract an audience.

La and new scandals with security are constantly appearing. Zuckerberg promised that the new smart display Facebook Portal will not collect information about users for advertising and even added to Portal hardware plug in front of a wide-angle video camera.

But as it turned out that the smart display can still gather information about who you communicate with and which apps to use to sell targeted ads.

The founders of Instagram, which previously was bought by Facebook, Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger had a falling out with Zuckerberg and left the company.

Before that, from Whatsapp, which Facebook also bought , left top Manager Brian Acton, who, indeed, created messenger. Acton and Zuckerberg did not agree on the question of advertising in the messenger.

What’s next

Zuckerberg has absolute advantage in the Board of Directors, his word is dominating in the voting, so to fire him would be difficult.

However, history knows such examples. In 1985 due to disagreements with the Board of Directors of Apple fired Steve jobs.

Recently the Creator of manufacturer of electric cars Tesla Elon musk was deprived of the post of Chairman of the Board of Directors of the company for three years. Although he retained the position of Executive Director of the company.
