Katherine Losse was the 51st employee of Facebook. She joined Facebook in 2005 and left it in 2010. After leaving the social media giant, she has written a book named “The Boy Kings: A Journey Into the Heart of the Social Network.” In this book, Losse shares some of the social-media giant’s biggest secrets. She has also revealed the unexpected bitter world of Facebook.

Katherine Losse was born in Phoenix, Arizona. She is 36 year old and has long, dark hair and sky-blue eyes. In 2004, she completed her graduation in English from Johns Hopkins University. In 2005, she dropped her CV in Facebook and within a short time, she was chosen as an employee of Facebook. In fact, she was the 51st member in the Facebook industry. She had been hired to answer user’s questions like “What is a poke?”, “Why can’t I access my ex-girlfriend’s profile?” etc. But eventually later she became Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg’s personal “Ghostwriter”. In other word, she became the person responsible for maintaining Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook page. But due to gender discrimination inside Facebook office, getting misbehave from other male-dominated employees, and most importantly by being fed up with inner Facebook world, she resigned from Facebook in 2010. After resigning from Facebook, she went to Marfa and wrote a book “The Boy Kings: A Journey Into the Heart of the Social Network.” The book has been published on June 26, 2012 by Free Press. This book is totally based on Losse’s bitter experience at Facebook between 2005 and 2010. She has revealed some unexpected and buzzing information about Facebook.

Katherine Losse mentioned in this book that – in its (Facebook) early days, Facebook was dominated by men, and women employees were left to fend for themselves. Female employees were instructed to wear Mark Zuckerberg’s profile picture printed T-shirts on Mark Zuckerberg’s birthday while male employees were told to wear Adidas sandals. She also mentioned that Adidas sandal was Zuckerberg’s favorite footwear. She also wrote in her book that at the end of each meeting Mark Zuckerberg used to say either ‘domination’ or ‘revolution’ with a joking flourishes of a fist.

In the early days of Facebook (indication to Zuckerberg), the company valued only the engineers. As during Facebook’s early period the company had very few women and most of the women were not in engineering, so women were ill-treated. She also wrote in the book that, there was a “master password” for which any Facebook employee could easily log in to any Facebook user’s account and access his/her all messages and data. But, the official staffs had to memorize that master password. Later, the company expunged that master password and eventually implemented more secure measures to access accounts.

However, there are a lot more awkward, charged with gender inequality moments described in Losse’s book – including the strange way Zuckerberg introduced his new Chief Operating officer (COO) Sheryl Sandberg in 2008. So, the story doesn’t here. Besides, it’s hard to draw any conclusion based on presented these accounts. There are a lot more about the harsh reality of Facebook inner world. You’ll find it all in “The Boy Kings: A Journey Into the Heart of the Social Network” written by Kate Losse (Katherine Losse).

Katherine Losse’s “The Boy Kings: A Journey Into the Heart of the Social Network” book is one of few that offer an intimate look at the inside culture of Facebook. She said, “I think he will find it interesting. I think there is a lot in it that will resonate with him, I think there will be things that he hasn’t spent a lot of time thinking about. But I hope the issue of women in the workplace will be something that Facebook and many companies will start talking about.”

If you are interested to buy the book and want to know more about the inside of Facebook world, you can get it from Amazon at $16.58.

No matter what happens, no one would want that some other people log in to his/her Facebook account without his/her permission or see his/her personal documents. But Facebook staffs can still log in to our Facebook account with their “special password.” That brings a burning question, “If they can log in to our account, then where our privacy lies?” There might be something in our Facebook account that we might not want to reveal to anybody, not even to any Facebook staff.

Are you sure about that your Facebook account hasn’t been logged in by any Facebook staffs? Think twice before you say something. Share your thought with us about the burning truth below in the box.
