By CCN: Facebook shareholders want Mark Zuckerberg to step down as chairman, saying he runs the social media monopoly “essentially as a dictatorship.”

Investors also slammed the tech juggernaut for its barrage of data-breach scandals, which they say has eroded public trust in the social network.

A group of shareholders made the bombshell revelations in an April 12 SEC filing. The proposals were made in preparation for Facebook’s annual shareholders meeting, which is scheduled for May 30.

Board Shot Down All 8 Shareholder Proposals

Facebook unwittingly confirmed that it does indeed “operate essentially as a dictatorship” when it flatly rejected all eight shareholder proposals.

In their first proposal, shareholders called for Zuckerberg to be replaced by an independent chair. They claim that Zuckerberg — who has been chairman since 2012 — wields too much power over the company as its controlling shareholder, chairman, and CEO.

“His dual-class shareholdings give him approximately 60% of Facebook’s voting shares, leaving the board — even with a lead independent director — with only a limited ability to check Mr. Zuckerberg’s power…We believe this weakens Facebook’s governance and oversight of management.”
