Facebook Founder Mark Zuckerberg Reveals Crazy Paranoid Streak
On March 31st, Zuckerberg sent out an internal memo announcing that Facebook's CFO Gideon Yu would be leaving the company. In his paranoia, Zuckerberg sent out slightly different versions of the memo to different people. Why? If an employee leaked the memo to the press, the Zuck would be able to identify the snitching employee by analyzing the language of the leak.
AllThingsD blogger Kara Swisher has noted that she received forwards of several versions of the memo. From one version to another, sentiments were phrased differently ("will report" vs. "will be reporting."), punctuation was changed, and contractions were swapped out for full phrases. This isn't the first time we've seen the trick, either. Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, pulled the same move last month, as ValleyWag was quick to point out.
We'd say the famously anti-social Zuckerberg -- an obviously immature babe-in-the-corporate-woods at 24 -- may have finally lost it (unlike two famous also-young-tech-CEOs featured in the gallery below). Ultimately, however, here's all we care about: If Zuckerberg ends up leaving his company, will we get our old Facebook back? [From: ValleyWag and AllThingsD]
