It's facebook—the Catholic church of today. facebook is the church and Zuckerberg is the pope.
There was speculation last year whether Zuck would run for president. "Not a chance", I said. Why would a guy with 2.2 billion followers, who can't be fired, subject himself to the harassment and indignity of an election? He already travels, meets with heads of state, and advocates for important issues like climate change and women's rights, all without the distraction of fundraising, or kowtowing to coal and tobacco lobbyists.
