COO of Facebook Sheryl Sandberg and I Drift Apart

Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, one of Fortune’s 50 Most Powerful Women in Business, and I have a lot in common.  Or at least I thought.

We’re both in the social media field, we’re both mad foxy, and we’re 2 of the most powerful women in the world. (I juuuust missed list as #51.)

But Sandberg caught me offguard recently with a statement to USA Today on how extreme her social media drive really is. 

“I think every small business should be using technology, they should be using all of the Web technologies, and they should be using Facebook,” said Sandberg.

Okay, I agree.  Good work, Sheryl.

Sandberg continues, ”So we’re not going to stop until everyone is using [Facebook] to grow their business.”

Errr hold up, girlfriend.

Sandberg is not saying she would like all businesses to use Facebook.  She is saying that Facebook will not stop (stop what?!) until they all are.

That’s a little monopolistic, isn’t it Sher?

And there’s another difference between us.  USA Today hates Sheryl Sandberg (apparently). 

You see, Sheryl Sandberg is actually a pretty lady, shown here with her Facebook pally Mark Zuckerberg.

See, she’s normal-looking!

And yet, USA Today chose this stillframe to display for her video interview. 


Uncool, USA Today.  I’m quite sure Sandberg doesn’t make a habit of attempting to eat her own nose. 

Unlike Sheryl, USA Today has never blatantly hated on me in an interview.  Hopefully they don’t start, either.. because wow.. they can be cruel.
