These days you bring up the word “Facebook” and all kinds of emotions and opinions start being thrown about. Some people believe Facebook should not monopolize social media just to make a profit.
As you know, I like to read so when I was given the opportunity to review Ekaterina Walter’s book on the man and business behind the Social Media Empire I was a bit curious. How does one go from a smart college kid to a household name? I was also interested to know if the rumors are true, was Facebook created just to make a profit? If so, then why would we want to “Think Like Zuck”? Or, was Facebook developed from passions and the intentions of a goal driven man to help society?
Even with all the negative comments about Facebook, Walter does an excellent job of providing the thought process of Mark Zuckerberg from an objective standpoint, with sprinklings of motivation throughout the book. She begins on a positive note from the first page, set out to prove that Mark did indeed create Facebook to help others, and even provides a heart lifting example. Throughout the book Walter continues to highlight Mark’s achievements, and notes his personality traits and big vision about providing a service to foster deep relationships for society by connecting people.
As you read further into the book, it is obvious to the reader that Walter has invested a large amount of time in researching not only Mark and Facebook, but other successful companies. I couldn’t help but be inspired from reading about all the successful entrepreneurs following their passions and intuition. Even a reader who continues to disbelieve in Mark’s intentions can find useful information in the book. For example, the reader can learn more about the 5 business secrets, or become inspired from the insightful quotes, or realize if you have a dream and strong belief you can create anything.
If you are looking for a little motivation, direction, or are interested in starting your own business open your mind with Walter’s book and Think like Zuck. You can find it at Amazon.com
