Why an early Facebook investor is now Facebook's biggest critic.

- Investor Roger McNamee joined Facebook as an early investor when the company was just two years old.

- In this video, he explains why he went from Facebook supporter to public critic, and why he came to write the book "Zucked: Waking Up to the Facebook Catastrophe".
