Mark Zuckerberg reportedly put the Facebook headquarters on “Lockdown” the day Google unveiled its own social network, Google+. According to an excerpt of an upcoming book by former Facebook employee, Antonio garcia Martinez, Lockdown was a, “state of war that dated to Facebook’s earliest days, when no one could leave the building while the company confronted some threat, either competitive or technical.” He goes on to describe the situation within the company around the time Google+ launched and the “war” Zuckerberg declared on Google. The excerpt is posted in Vanity Fair and is taken from Matinez’s book, Chaos Monkeys: Obscene Fortune and Random Failure in Silicon Valley.
