Mark Zuckerberg Says He Likes It When Employees Call Him 'The Eye of Sauron'

Facebook founder, now CEO of Meta, Mark Zuckerberg, has stated that he doesn't mind the fact that those working for him apparently refer to him as 'the eye of Sauron' in reference to the evil eye of Sauron in the Lord of the Rings books.


The fact he is called by the moniker emerged during an interview between Zuckerberg and YouTuber Tim Ferriss, in which the CEO said:


"Some of the folks who I work with at the company they say this lovingly, but I think that they sometimes refer to my attention as the Eye of Sauron."


However, Zuckerberg apparently doesn't take the name as an insult or a sign that his employees don't like him but instead, he believes it refers to his 'unending amount of energy to go work on something'.


Adding:


"At this point, I kind of feel like if people fully feel like they understand what we are as a company and what we're doing, then I'm not pushing it hard enough."


It is not the first time Zuckerberg has come in for criticism in terms of the amount of power he wields over not only his employees but global affairs and political outcomes. Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes spoke in 2019 in a newspaper column describing how Zuckerberg's power is unprecedented. He said in the op-ed:


"He controls three core communications platforms—Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp—that billions of people use every day. … Mark alone can decide how to configure Facebook's algorithms to determine what people see in their News Feeds, what privacy settings they can use and even which messages get delivered. He sets the rules for how to distinguish violent and incendiary speech from the merely offensive, and he can choose to shut down a competitor by acquiring, blocking or copying it."


Facebook, now Meta, has moved in direction over the last year to focus on the Metaverse project, which will seek to be an immersive platform that will bring simulated reality to a whole new level.
