Revised: April 30, 2015
The case dilemma centers around Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook’s chief operating officer (COO)
and second in command. She is looking to take the company to the next level: not only to
continued growth in mobile ads, but to dominance in the digital ad space. For this to occur,
Facebook would somehow have to top Google in both display and search ads, despite only
having nominal presence and expertise in display ads. Moreover, Facebook is facing the
continued convergence in this fast-moving industry.
