Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced recently that they’re working on tweaks to the Facebook ‘like’ button. At company headquarters they’re looking into another emoticon. So Zuckerberg might be thanking Viola Davis for her Emmy acceptance speech as confirmation of his social media vision.

During a Q & A at FB HQ he shared that they were not working on a ’dislike’ button. Instead he’s quoted by a CNBC staff writer as saying “we don’t want to turn Facebook into a forum where people are voting up or down on people’s post.” His leadership decision is based on something more than just the ‘like’ button.

As a social media guru Zuckerberg probably knows that every ‘like’ involves an emotion but the range of human emotions aren’t simply a ‘like.’ So he could point to Viola Davis as a good example. The heartfelt responses some had to her acceptance speech at the Emmy’s might better be captured by a ‘feel’ button.

Zuckerberg and his leadership team have big decisions to make that are beyond the Emmy Red Carpet. They have to think about how their decisions make the headline and affect the bottom line. He affirms that leadership is about the kind of community they create and the opportunities people have to elevate.

Davis made strong points from the stage. It’s as if her fashion statement matched her winning statement. Facebook hopes to do the same with the new feature they create for social media expression. Whether as Pope, politician or pop culture icon, leadership is sometimes about who or what you’re fighting for.

Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg recently said. Company’s focused on staying ahead. With tweaks to the ‘like’ button. Not being social media glutton. Another emoticon on drawing board. We haven’t yet heard the last word. Just might thank Viola Davis for her speech. His next software vision is in reach.

During Q & A at company HQ. Shared how they’re working with a new cue. A ‘dislike’ button not coming anytime soon. Instead they’re singing another tune. Won’t turn FB into an e-post freefall. Where folks vote up or down on people’s wall. Leadership based on doing more. Than ‘like’ button as the only score.

A social media guru that he is. One who know ‘likes’ are just part of biz. For human emotions to be made sane. A ‘like’ is not enough to cover the plain. Could point to Viola Davis for sure. Her speech left tears on the floor. So a heartfelt ‘feel ya’ button might better say. The range of emotions that come into play.

Zuckerberg’s core team has some big decisions. Beyond the Emmy Red Carpet promotions. Decisions that can spin-off a new headline. Or affect balance sheet and bottom line. For many leadership is about community they create. Not to mention opportunities where people elevate.

Davis made strong points from stage. Props to others on same page. Her fashion statement seen in black and white. A winning statement to sum-up the fight. Facebook hopes new feature does same. For social media expression game. Whether Pope, politician or popular hand. Leadership’s about where you stand.

Tip: Leadership is not just having a ‘like’ button but having a feel for where people really stand.
