Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, who beat out Apple's CEO Steve Jobs for the honor of Time magazine’s “Person of the Year” and Forbes magazine’s list of wealthiest American’s in 2010, has modeled his management style after Steve Jobs.
It's no secret that [Zuckerberg] looked up to Steve Jobs at the time,” said Bryan Veloso, one of the Facebook’s early employees, explaining where the phrase “I’m CEO, Bitch” in his business card originated from.
These are the words Zuckerberg used to utter to be more aggressive and to emaluate the style of Steve Jobs.
The story of this title appearing on Mark Zuckerberg’s early Facebook business cards has been quite popular outside the company since 2009, when Ben Mezrich’s The Accidental Billionaires was released. It virtually exploded into a legendary status the next year.
When designing Zuckerberg's business card, Veloso felt comfortable having fun with the tagline and added the quote. Quite simply, it was a phrase I typed in that stuck, he said. According to Veloso, the cards represented the company culture at the time, but were eventually replaced as the company grew.
Recent reports say, Facebook is secretly developing a HTML5 project to maintain its control over the web apps without having to submit to the App Store terms.
