Eduardo Saverin: Facebook’s ‘Biggest Risk Is Growing Too Fast’

Facebook Co-Founder Eduardo Saverin cautioned that the social network’s rapid growth brings both positive and negative consequences.

Speaking at a conference in Singapore organized by The Wall Street Journal, Saverin said the sheer size of Facebook’s user base presents challenges when it comes to educating users and governments on privacy issues, adding, as reported by Bloomberg:

The biggest risk is growing too fast. When you grow too fast, it’s hard to iterate, educate.

There are always multiple threats to Facebook. There are a lot of technology companies out there with tremendous resources and engineering and very experienced talent that are trying to enter this space.
