In a little more than half a decade, Facebook has gone from a dorm-room novelty to a company with 500 million users - and an essential part of the social life not only of teenagers but hundreds of millions of adults worldwide. As Facebook spreads around the globe, it creates surprising effects - even becoming instrumental in political protests. Veteran technology reporter David Kirkpatrick had the full cooperation of Facebook´s key executives in researching this fascinating history. Kirkpatrick tells us how Facebook was created, why it has flourished, and where it is going next. He chronicles its successes and missteps, and gives readers the most complete assessment anywhere of founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, the central figure in the company´s remarkable ascent. This is the Facebook story that can be found nowhere else. Kirkpatrick shows how Zuckerberg refused to compromise, insistently focusing on growth over profits and preaching that Facebook must dominate (his word) communication on the Internet. In the process, he and a small group of key executives have created a company that has changed social life in the United States and elsewhere, a company that has become a ubiquitous presence in marketing, and one that has altered politics, business, and even our sense of our own identity. This is the Facebook Effect. This special edition also includes an exclusive conversation between the author and Randi Zuckerberg, who offers unique insight as a marketer at Facebook and the CEO´s sister. You´ll hear them talk about major company milestones, high-profile product launches, and the CEO´s growth - emotionally and experientially - as a leader. They also discuss the controversial issues surrounding Facebook´s privacy policies. 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Kirkpatrick.

Facebook´s founding is legend: In a Harvard dorm, wunderkind Mark Zuckerberg invented a new way to connect with friends...and the rest is history. But for the people who actually molded this great idea into a game-changing $300 billion company, the experience was far more tumultuous and uncertain than we might expect. Mike Hoefflinger was one of those Facebook insiders. As a computer engineer turned marketing innovator who worked with COO Sheryl Sandberg, Hoefflinger had a front-row seat to the company´s growing pains, stumbles, and reinventions. Becoming Facebook tells the coming-of-age story of the now venerable giant. Filled with insights and anecdotes from crises averted and challenges solved, the book tracks the company´s development, uncovering lessons learned on its way to greatness: How Facebook recovered from its ´´disastrous´´ IPO How the growth team achieved the impossible Why Facebook´s News Feed ads were the company´s most important business decision ever How Google+ attacked and lost Why - and how - Instagram and WhatsApp were added to the mix What the company does to win the talent wars What makes Zuckerberg, Sandberg, Cox, and other A-teamers tick Which products and technical advancements are on the horizon and why And much more Intimate, fast paced, and deeply informative, Becoming Facebook shares the true story of how Zuckerberg joined the ranks of iconic CEOs like Steve Jobs, Larry Page, and Jeff Bezos - as Facebook grows up, overcomes setbacks, and works to connect the world.
