In the past there has been a push for the chief executive officer Mark Zuckerberg to give up his role as chairman of the board. Having both titles gave him almost absolute power at the social network. He is the decider.
However, as long as investors were content with the price of the stock they weren't the loudest voices in the room.
Recently the decider's decisions have significantly reduced the value of the stock. In general, experts expect the price to continue to decline since they don't anticipate a growth bounce-back any time soon in the sales and number of users.
The volume on the discontent has been turned up.
Investors, especially institutional ones, now are pushing harder for change. As Bloomberg reports, at Pivotal Research Group Brian Wieser sees that move as "inevitable. Here is the Bloomberg analysis.
The question has shifted from if Zuckerberg's almost total control of the corporation will be broken to how much of it he will lose and when. The media buzz even is speculating who will replace him.
Meanwhile, as The Wall Street Journal notes, in general, users seem to souring on Facebook. That is also happening at Twitter, whose stock price also plummeted this week.
The game seems open for competition about what players will come to "own" social networks.
In coaching those over-50, I hear from clients that they are well aware of the importance of how they are positioning and packaging themselves on LinkedIn. They ask me to review their profiles and their activity on LinkedIn Updates. However, they have found no return on investment from participating on Facebook and Twitter.
In my own branding and business development, my focus also has been on LinkedIn. Posting on LinkedIn Updates can generate visits to my profile - and new business.
