In order to accomplish this Yeoman’s task, someone must make the first move, and it must be substantial.
Mark has also stated that he plans to give away 99% of his FB shares to charity (see link). mark-zuckerberg-giving-away-99-of-his-facebook-shares-2015-12
The signers of this group believe that in order for true universal fairness to exist regarding this wealth distribution, the FB shares should be distributed amongst the users of Facebook, who are the real reason that Mark amassed such wealth. The users of Facebook will then own Facebook. At their discretion, each user/owner will be able to sell their share and then give the money to the charity of their choice, or retain ownership of the company.
Mark Zuckerberg owns over 475,000,000 shares of Facebook. Facebook has an estimated 1,500,000,000 users.
"We, the undersigned, call on Mark Zuckerberg to call for a vote to effect a forward split of Facebook, Inc. stock (FB) at a ratio of 3:1.
