Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg always asks the same question before hiring people

It has been nearly two decades since Facebook first launched and gripped the attention of millions of people across the world and there’s one thing that is key to its success, according to Mark Zuckerberg.

The Facebook CEO said he always asks himself the same question before hiring people to join his ever-growing team and the answer is more simple than you’d think.

Zuckerberg has seen his platform go from strength to strength since its launch on February 4, 2004, and has renamed the popular network ‘Meta’.

And with years of accomplishments under his belt, the founder believes his interview question is a “pretty good test”, reports Daily Mail.

“I will only hire someone to work directly for me if I would work for that person,” he said at the Mobile World Congress in 2015.

Despite his clever technique, there have been some ups and downs for the billionaire since Facebook was founded.

19 years later and just days before the social network celebrated its birthday, it was announced that his company lost £174 billion in the largest one-day drop in stock market history.

It has been reported that daily users of Facebook plummeted to 1.929 billion people in the last three months of 2021, with it reaching a staggering 1.939 billion in the previous quarter.

Meta’s shares dropped in after-hours trading following the announcement and the CEO lost his place in the top 10 richest people in the world after £22 billion pounds was wiped from his net worth.

When Facebook first launched, it didn’t have many competitors, but in the ever-growing world of technology, over platforms are fighting to take its place in popularity.

The platform now includes WhatsApp and Instagram but is still facing rival apps.

Zuckerberg recently confessed that platforms such as TikTok have impacted Facebook, as Meta reports slow revenue growth, with one of the reasons being the increase in competition.

“People have a lot of choices for how they want to spend their time and apps like TikTok are growing very quickly,” he said.
