Few weeks ago a group of Facebook investors called on the company’s chief executive Officer, Mark Zuckerberg to step down as chairman due to some speculated reasons.
Mark Zuckerberg gave a speech on Tuesday saying that he has no plans to resign, sounding defiant after a rough year for the social platform.
Zuckerberg told CNN Business “that wasn’t the plan” when asked if he would consider stepping down as chairman.
He also defended Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg, who has drawn criticism over her handling of the social media giant’s recent crises.
“Sheryl is a really important part of this company and is leading a lot of the efforts for a lot of the biggest issues we have,” said Zuckerberg.
“She’s been an important partner to me for 10 years. I’m really proud of the work we’ve done together and I hope that we work together for decades more to come.”
Facebook has stumbled from one mess to another this year as it grappled with continuing fallout from Russia’s use of the platform to interfere in the 2016 US presidential election, the Cambridge Analytica scandal in which user data was harnessed in a bid to help candidate Donald Trump, and a huge security breach involving millions of accounts.
I hope they resolve this issue fast.
