Rupert Murdoch Congratulates Zuckerberg on IPOBy: Mike Fossum - May 21, 2012
Media mogul Rupert Murdoch congratulated Mark Zuckerberg on Facebook’s IPO, and urged him to continue working. Murdoch, who in the past lamented a lack of civility on Twitter, still takes to the platform to project his varied musings. Here he wishes Zuckerberg happiness:
Warm congrats to Mark Zuckerberg. Much happiness, but don’t stop working!
Of course, many Twitterers chimed in. Below are some tweets worthy of note:
@rupertmurdoch if he keeps working this Facebook thing might become as successful as Myspace!
This user, likely aware of Facebook’s possible issue with monetizing effective ad content, especially for mobile, alludes to the social network possibly devolving into Myspace. Though Zuckerberg has pointed out that Facebook’s mobile app is the number one priority for 2012, and might even write some of the code himself regarding any alterations. And another comments on Facebook’s possible ad problem:
@rupertmurdoch How will Facebook provide value for shareholders when almost nobody pays attention to the ads, it’s main revenue?
This user doesn’t like Murdoch:
And, just after Zuckerberg’s marriage was announced, the user below urges him to not allow his “ruddy” wife to get in the way:
@rupertmurdoch yeah dont let that ruddy wife get in the way eh!!!
