In one of his recent remarks, Steve Wozniak gave Mark Zuckerberg some behavioral recommendations. According to Wozniak, the Facebook entrepreneur should stop putting money before morals. What’s more, we are confident that Wozniak is familiar with what greed does to people.
Greedy Apple and Wozniak
For those who don’t know, S. Wozniak is one of the Apple co-founders. In comparison with Steve Jobs, Wozniak was not regularly in the spotlight, even though he designed the very first Apple computer. While multiple information sources emphasize Apple’s positive qualities, some people do not know the story of Steve Wozniak’s early beginnings.
At some point, Wozniak had to give away some of his own Apple shares to properly compensate employees, as he could not put up with an unfair situation. From this experience, Wozniak showed that he knew what greed does to people; thus, he warned Mark Zuckerberg of the consequences.
Greedy Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook
Many of us might believe Mark Zuckerberg to be an intellectual and a decent entrepreneur. We are aware that Zuck became one of the youngest entrepreneurs who invented a world-changing platform. And, while there are those who believe that Mark does not care much about money, some folks like Steve Wozniak seem to have a different opinion about the FB founder.
According to Wozniak, Facebook has stated many sweet promises regarding how it will work to serve people. Although these promises from Facebook seemed sweet, Wozniak pointed out that the reality does not seem to match the promises. Based on its previous actions, Facebook is not willing to spend even a single penny on things that do not matter to it. By aggressively pushing for more features that take money out of people’s pockets and essentially spending zero resources on helping little people out, it seems hard for Facebook to disprove Wozniak’s point. Did Mark lose his moral principles, or did he become less influential within the corridors of his own company? The answer is yet unknown.
