At age 34, he can't figure out what iGens want and he can't hold on to the talent who can. Of course, teens are the future of his business. So, the era of Zuckerberg may be coming to an end.
Piper Jeffrey found that Facebook can't attract teens. Only 36% of them even visit that social network once a month.
Where they are, at least for right now, is on Facebook's acquisitions - Instagram and WhatsApp. However, the heads of those hightailed it out of Zuckerberg's empire. Seems they couldn't see eye-to-eye. Without the right leadership, those two social platforms could also start turning off teens.
Here are lots more details from Vanity Fair's Maya Kosoff.
The teen market is volatile. And Zuckerberg just can't keep up. Soon youth may deride him as the Old Man in social.
It's okay to be older in the world of professional platforms such as LinkedIn. That's a whole other world. But that world is unlikely to let Zuckerberg in. Ironically, he hasn't matured enough to be welcome.
