On this afternoon’s conference call, Facebook CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg was asked point-blank if he’s still the best person to lead the company. His answer: Give me another chance.
Zuckerberg replied: “Yes. People make mistakes and learn along the way. I’m the first to admit we didn’t take a broad enough view of what our responsibilities are . . . What people should hold us accountable for is learning from the mistakes.”
When asked if the board had suggested he step down, Zuckerberg replied, “Not that I am aware of.”
