The article needs to be improved but you need to keep in perspective it very weird to claim the founder and CEO of a $16 billion dollar company is not notable. -- 220.127.116.11 (talk) 14:48, 20 February 2014 (UTC)
Don't worry, the article will not be speedy deleted, the nominator was wrong here. Note that the article needs to get a reliable source in thenext few days or may face deletion anyway, since on Wikipedia, all articles on living persons should be sourced. Fram (talk) 14:57, 20 February 2014 (UTC)
It is actually not that weird to say the CEO is not notable. In fact, if you look closely you'll see almost no CEO's have wikipedia pages... simply being CEO of a large company doesn't make you notable. Now, maybe they get involved in lots of other notable things, in which case the combination makes them notable. But just being rich, or the CEO of a big company, doesn't automatically qualify you.—MrandTalk • C 19:55, 20 February 2014 (UTC)
Not having pages doesn't equal not being notable. The (co-)founders of large companies ate almost always notable. The later CEOs less so. A company worth billions of dollars is a large company, even if the price is "somewhat" inflated. Fram (talk) 07:42, 21 February 2014 (UTC)
I'm afraid I don't agree. Why would this be true "(co-)founders of large companies are almost always notable"? There are tons and tons of people who founded companies, acquired by even larger companies, who have nothing more to their name than the fact that founded the company and sold it. Just go study the list of acquisitions for any of the larger companies. In the cases where you find wikipedia pages about the founder, it was because they have MULTIPLE things going for them (i.e., multiple articles written about multiple subjects... not just the articles about the story of them founding [and selling] one company).—MrandTalk • C 16:00, 5 March 2014 (UTC)
Better sources say $16 billion. Lesser news sources go with the inflated total of $19. Facebook says $16 in their statement. There is an addition $3 billion in share options, it's more accurate but less simple to say $16 billion and explain the extras. -- 18.104.22.168 (talk) 16:24, 21 February 2014 (UTC)
