For me, the documents have illuminated the nature of Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s co-founder and CEO, as a ruthless businessman and savvy corporate strategist. This shouldn’t be news to anyone who has followed Facebook’s history or watched the “Social Network,” but the documents add color to the less-discussed aspect of Zuckerberg character as a deeply involved tactician seeking to maximize Facebook’s revenue and as a cutthroat executive willing to (metaphorically) kneecap competitors.

This is not Mark Zuckerberg as a Mayberry-dwelling naïf who sweats through his hoodie when he’s nervous and cheerfully pets a cow. This is Mark Zuckerberg as Charles Foster Kane.
