Friday 5 for 6/4/2010

by Ron on June 4, 2010

Ah, another week in social media and more drama from Facebook. This week, the man-child CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, went one on one (well two actually) at the D8 Conference, and by all reports, didn’t handle the heat so well when questioned about Facebook privacy issues. This was in stark contrast to more seasoned CEOs like Steve Jobs and Steve Ballmer who were clearly calm, cool, collected and comfortable being asked the tough questions.

Earlier in the week, I wrote a post on DaniWeb, called Is Zuckerberg Over His Head as CEO, questioning if Mr Zuckerberg was truly suited to be CEO of a large organization like Facebook. His performance left more questions than answers.

While all that was going on, some people tried to stage a Quit Facebook day. It didn’t go over very well, but it showed the underlying disaffection with the social media site. What’s more, we got a taste of the darker side of social media with people being sued for publicly criticizing a company on online social networks, while we were warned to watch our online reputations.

With all that as a backdrop, let’s look at this week’s Friday 5:
