Why we like Facebook
Mark Zuckerberg, Founder and CEO, has a very strong vision and has executed impressively. He has earned the reputation as a rising business leader much like the younger Steve Jobs or Bill Gates. Facebook has been focusing on long term growth rather than short term monetization and the company has been hiring best-in-class talent.
