'An Ugly Truth' author, Cecilia Kang, joins 'Influencers with Andy Serwer' to discuss Mark Zuckerberg's leadership at Facebook.

Video Transcript

ANDY SERWER: You wrote that Zuckerberg may step away from the job as CEO to spend more time on philanthropic endeavors. Do you think that would happen at any point soon? Would we ever see sometime soon Facebook without Mark Zuckerberg?

CECILIA KANG: Yeah, we got that idea from talking to people who talk to Mark directly about his real ambitions to emulate sort of the path that Bill Gates took. I don't know what the timing is on that. But we're already seeing his-- you know, with the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative and with his wife, Priscilla Chan, leading that, that he is-- and he set up, you know. And he's talked to Bill Gates, who is a mentor of his, for advice.

We're seeing him start to plant the seeds. I think Facebook has just so many issues right now to work out, he just can't possibly step away early on. I also think that he's so incredibly curious about technology, and he's so incredibly competitive that he would hate to see the next thing take over Facebook that it's going to be really hard for him to leave his day job any time soon.
