The Facebook culture: ‘Prove it’

by on
in Leaders & Managers,People Management

Eight years ago, Facebook had a handful of coders. Now one in eight people on Earth uses its product.

As Facebook writes its own rulebook, part of its culture is healthy dissent, especially when it comes with proof.

Example: Time and again, coders would produce prototypes allowing users to chat with each other. Time and again, they got shot down. Eventually, their prototype came into such intense demand that leaders had to reconsider.

Lesson: At Facebook, it’s said, “Code wins arguments.” Even when founder Mark Zuckerberg thinks an idea is no good, he’s happy to be proven wrong. Facebook will always write its own rulebook.
