Facebook stock decline and motivation?

Jan 6 28 Comments

Facebook stock price has gone down by 35% much more compared to some tech companies. Has this impacted employee's motivation?
Are people looking outside for different opportunities?
What would you suggest to someone who is trying to evaluate offers from Facebook and Google. Does this stock decline matter?

      If you look at past posts related to stock decline or fb's privacy issues. Replying back like a dick is the theme of most of the threads. I think they learn from their founders.

      I used to work at FB. 2023s response is not a one off. People are dicks to each other there and are rewarded for it. Asking a question in a group is met with the same type of response. These are in fact the type of people that work at FB.

    Can you identify what the issue is with FB? It didn't do anything unethical. Leaks and technical issues, yes. That happens to all companies. The news media (which competes for the same 💰) blow things out of proportion. But usage numbers are strong and the product is getting better all the time.

    Essentially, Facebook is in a fight of it's lifetime with the media establishment. All other newer media companies have been through it: NBC, HBO, Google, Netflix, etc. If Facebook comes out on top there is no stopping it. Place your bets folks!

      Facebook created a complex system that could be used influence an entire population of the US to vote in a different direction. The system itself has become a problem...even their employees don't know to prevent such exploitation. It may not be possible. The system should just be torn down. People will be better without it.

      But you’re ok with the country’s largest telco doing nefarious things with customer data without consent? Even though said data includes physical location of all wireless customers 24/7, along with what web sites and apps they use?

      So many comments and not a single example of Facebook actually doing anything unethical.

      This is a perfect example of the hit-and-run done by the established media: throw up sensational headlines and bank on people not understanding the true situation. Too bad, the public is not as easily misled.

      @TankBab: finally some meaningful signal. Agree that Facebook has a large audience and that it could be hijacked for political purposes. But that is not unethical. Rather, it is a modern tool for political parties to influence the people in a democracy. The only job of Facebook is to ensure that underhanded tactics such as fake news are not employed on it's platform. It failed in doing so in 2016 but excelled with that in 2018. So what's the issue now?

      @TankBab common man. There are companies selling your data on the open market, not just your cat and dog pictures but all your PII. You need to educate yourself.

      How do you feel about the brutal working condition Amazon workers have to go through? Amazon making profit at the expense of poor working conditions. Also, have you ever thought about the many stores and shops that have closed down due to Amazon? It affected the livelihood of large number of people. Shouldn't employees of Amazon ecommerce division die in shame then? Stop being hypocrite!

      @DMCFOO Keep things in perspective. Amazon is in competition with other businesses. There is nothing unethical about businesses competing and the weak ones perishing in the process. That's just economics and the world of business. Where as, Facebook is given a great responsibility with people's personal information from around the world. They lost people's trust when that information was exploited for elections and who knows for what else that we don't even know about. They built a system that allowed that to happen. Stop being so naive. I'm not saying that FB wasn't once valuable. I just don't think that they can't maintain generating value at the same rate given their lapses.
