Facebook CEO and cofounder Mark Zuckerberg and COO Sheryl Sandberg “fundamentally disagree” on whether or not Facebook should expand into China, Bloomberg Businesweek’s Brad Stone reports in a long profile of Sandberg published tonight.Stone says that Sandberg is “wary about he compromises the company would need to make to do businesses in China.”
Zuckerberg, he says, “believes that Facebook can be an agent of change.”
The disagreement mirrors – in opposite – the one between Google cofounder Sergey Brin, who believe that company should not go to China, and then CEO Eric Schmidt, who believed it should.
Sandberg told Stone that Zuckerberg will have final say. Zuckerberg told Stone nothing is settled, “we have a pretty long term perspective on this.”
