This week is a quick update. I was a bit off my game this morning– had a lot of cuts to make in editing. Maybe I just hadn’t had enough coffee. Either way, I got through and put the ball in your court for discussion! Topics covered include:
- Name change from Monday Monologue to Weekly Rundown
- Mark Zuckerberg: Should he step down as CEO?
- You should be on Google+. Period.
Monday Monologue Becomes Weekly Rundown
After much consideration I realized that my weekly rant is better represented by the title of Weekly Rundown. I came to the conclusion yesterday as I sat and thought about the title. I realized a couple things:
Even though I record them on Monday morning, they don’t really get posted until late that night. Most readers will not see it until Tuesday morning. Therefore, the “Monday” part of the title seemed irrelevant.
When I think of a monologue, I think of an actor alone on a stage giving his best show possible. I am alone in my videos (for the most part… how many of you saw my son’s head in this weeks video?), but I’m not acting in any way. So to call it a monologue just didn’t quite seem to capture the right idea.
So I settled on the Weekly Rundown. It’s a weekly video post where I rundown the the things that are foremost on my mind or to-do list for that week.
Should Zuckerberg step down?
Rumors are beginning to circulate that people are not happy with the way Mark Zuckerberg is running Facebook. This is primarily based on the stock performance being at a all time (all 3 months) low. Facebook’s stock is now half of what it’s initial offering was. Not good.
Now, I’m not as much a fan of the social network titan as I once was. Google+ has romanced me with it’s beautiful UI, ease of use, glorious feature sets, and much more– but I haven’t turned my back on Facebook yet. I still love keeping up with family and friends on there (since they haven’t all taken to Google+… yet). However there are more than a few short-comings that leave me a bit off-put.
- Photo uploading (and media in general) is still clunky
- Advertising is often annoying, irrelevant, or offensive
- UI/UX is, for lack of a better word, bleh
- Navigating to core functions is frustrating
- Game/App/Other unwanted notifications are a nuisance
Despite all this, I am inclined to say that Zuckerberg should remain as CEO of Facebook. He may have some things to learn– such as hiring people who are better than him at things and letting them run with it– but I’m still pulling for him. Maybe it’s the young entrepreneur in me wanting to see another young entrepreneur succeed (even if he is already filthy stinkin’ rich).
But what do you think? Is Zuck’s time up? You can leave a comment by clicking here.
P.S. If you’re not on Google+ already, you should join now. I hope to explain why in future post, but until then– get on it and circle me here.
