As Facebook's stock price continues to hit new lows, some investors are questioning whether Mark Zuckerburg, Facebook's founder and CEO, is still suitable for the job.

A Los Angeles Times story quoted four such investors, who say "Zuckerberg should remain as a creative force, but the company should hire an experienced CEO to run things." What do you think? Should a more seasoned CEO replace Zuck?

    Nobody should have believed the stock price. I blame the investors and the market. Zuckerberg did an excellent job of creating value -- they mis-priced FB.

    I think he priced based on what he wanted, rather than going in and seeing what the market would do for him.

    The facts about the profiles (less active members than assumed) did not help either.

    I don't think Facebook set the price. I thought the price was determined by the market itself to start - in other words Wall Street.

    The initial price was set by estimates based on what the owner of FB wanted. It came in at a "requested price per share" (sort of) and never hit the mark.

    Zuck tried to blame the investment firm that handled the IPO for the poor rating, but later had to admit that at least a 25% share of FB account holders were bogus, probably more, and many many more than that were duplicate accounts, so it doesn't have to actual use that indicated the IPO price.

    That is the summation we were given by my father in laws investment guy.

    FB is guilty of telling lies about how many members they have ...Big Z was to busy campaigning for Obama to worry about the crimes he was sure he would get away with ...he needs to go to jail - LOL

    the market created the value and the market allowed for the price to go down.

    I don't agree with you on very many issues, but I do agree with you on this one.
