As I read through this article, “At Last — The Full Story of How Facebook Was Founded“, I had mixed reactions. I do think that Mark Zuckerberg could have been more helpful to and more honest with the Harvard Connection team. That said, Mark is smart. He did the right thing for his site and while he saw similarities between the two sites, he knew The Facebook was different (and better). I feel sorry for the Harvard Connection team but the truth of the matter is that their vision was limited and Mark saw the big picture.
.
I do not, in any way, think that this story should impact how Facebook is viewed. I believe that Facebook is a great tool for people to share content and keep in touch with their friends and family. Facebook was initially created as a college site and over the course of six years, it has grown into a global enterprise. The Facebook team continues to make improvements on the site and expand server size. Businesses are now able to connect to consumers and use Facebook as a marketing/customer service tool.

I know that if I were Mark, I would have done the same thing. I also know that if I were the Harvard Connection team, I would feel upset and betrayed. The most important thing is that Facebook is great. The site is being well-managed and I do not want management to change. I wish Mark (and his team) and the Harvard Connection/ConnectU team success. The reality is, they all went to Harvard and the world is their oyster.
