The Facebook CEO made the admission in a comprehensive interview with NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt that was broadcast Monday night. The interview comes as Facebookas the race for the White House increases.
“Historically, I’ve had a very hard time expressing myself,” Zuckerberg stated when asked if he was the very best communicator for his business. “I simply discover as robotic.
“This is among the important things in maturing I require to improve at in running this business,” he stated.
But his public image issue isn’t simply his fault, he states.
“I’ve remained in the general public eye considering that I was 19, and a great deal of my individual experience has actually been that individuals state a great deal of incorrect features of you.”
Grappling with the general public’s picture of him isn’t a brand-new obstacle for Zuckerberg. In the 2010 film The Social Network, star Jesse Eisenberg depicted the young Zuckerberg throughout Facebook’s infancy. In its evaluation of the film, The New York Times kept in mind that “the obvious paradox that The Social Network has fun with is that the world’s most popular social networking Web website was produced by a male with extremely, practically pathologically bad, individuals abilities.”
