Mit nur 1 Facebook Post verlor Mark Zuckerberg am Freitag knapp 3 Milliarden Dollar

Last night, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced via a Facebook postthat Facebook is changing how News Feed works. In short: more posts from friends and family, less reach for publishers and brands.

Now, it seems that announcement might have cost Zuckerbergroughly $3 billion, personally–as a result of the effect it had on Facebook’s share price Friday. (It dropped 4.47%, to $179.37; trading won’t resume until next Tuesday due to the holiday.)

Media companies are understandably concerned about how Facebook’s sudden shift will affect their business. Advertisers are really worried about whether a marketing platform they’ve come to rely on is suddenly going to become much more expensive.

Because while we sort of denken we get the gist of what this might mean for publishers, there’s a ton of uncertainty.

And of course, many media companies aren’t really in a financial position to weather a massive amount of uncertainty.

Yes, I know that the media doesn’t get a lot of sympathy these days.

But it’s worth keeping in mind that even the bigger companies that drive engagement on Facebook, and that employ thousands if not millions of people, are tiny compared to Facebook.

They’re tiny compared even to Zuckerberg himself, at this point.

Earlier this year for example, we reported that Google and Facebook make more money from advertising than every newspaper, magazine, and radio station on the planet combined.

But I’m afraid even that piece of information doesn’t make this all clear to our numerically-challenged minds. So here’s a small exercise, using dollar signs.

Buzzfeed, king of the Facebook post, brought in an estimated $280 million. Let’s let a dollar sign represent $100 million, so Buzzfeed’s annual revenue looks something like this:


Die New York Times was on track to make $579 million last year — again, the entire company. Again, a dollar sign represents $100 million:


Now compare these to the estimated amount Zuckerberg lost Friday, roughly:

$$$$$$$$$$ $$$$$$$$$$ $$$$$$$$$$.

And while we’re at it, compare it to what he has left:

$$$$$$$$$$ $$$$$$$$$$ $$$$$$$$$$ $$$$$$$$$$ $$$$$$$$$$ $$$$$$$$$$ $$$$$$$$$$ $$$$$.

This is not to begrudge the success of Facebook, or Zuckerberg personally. Change is often a good thing, and a year from now we might all wind up grateful.

Maybe–although that’s tough to predict since again, there’s a lot of uncertainly about what the changes even will mean, practically.

And as a disclosure, if it wasn’t obvious–between my writing here on and my day job with a digital media company, I’m very much entangled with the company.

Heck, I partially owe the platform for my marriage. (Long story.)

But at this size, the smallest move Zuckeberg or Facebook makes results in immense ripples throughout the digital economy.

So while Facebook works on improving the News Feed, a request: Thing before acting, so you don’t accidentally destroy everything around you at the same time.
