Authors of the text are dissatisfied that since July of last year the cost of the company fell by 40%. They consider that it happened because of the decisions made by the head of Facebook. It is not the first case of attacks of a part of shareholders to Zuckerberg, but hardly they can solve something.

Dmitry Gorilovsky the head of the Wooden Shark company "At Zuckerberg is very large number of voices. There is a lot of shareholders at Facebook, and such authoritative control system not really is pleasant to some of them. It is unclear, than this question will end now, vote was not yet. In any organization there are always dissatisfied. There were many any scandals, and always Facebook avoided direct stroke to Zuckerberg, some other top managers were endangered. Facebook is a platform on which people spread information, Zuckerberg definitely does not bear responsibility for manipulation on elections in the USA".

To Facebook of a claim is practically at each country because each country tries to dominate over minds of the own population, and now these processes very strongly escalated".
