Key quote:

“It is actually the members of Facebook who create its value. Where would you be without people’s touching stories and entertaining photographs? How can it be right that you and your corporation extract all that value from human creativity and call it your own?

So, I call on you to increase the breadth of your vision and imagine a world where people matter more than profits… For Facebook to be a real social network, it needs to be owned mutually, by those who invest their love in it. As long as Facebook remains your personal property it cannot fulfil this vision.”
