Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg spoke with Chinese President Xi Jinping on Wednesday for an entire minute in Xi’s native language.
Although Facebook is banned in China, Zuckerberg was more than cordial with the foreign leader as he conversed with Xi in Mandarin. Zuckerberg said in a Facebook post after the meeting:
We’ve all heard it before: Children and teens who play video games cut themselves off from the world. They become anti-social. They ignore homework. And most debatably, they become hostile and act out in violent ways if they are continually exposed to violent video games.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg thinks differently. At a town hall Q&A session last week at the company’s headquarters in Menlo Park, California, Zuckerberg said playing a lot of video games while growing up pushed him into experimenting with technology. He also said that those who have similar childhoods might make them better programmers later in life, which is exactly what happened to him.
On Tuesday this week, we witnessed another Q&A episode in the Facebook melodrama that is Mark Zuckerberg’s life.
In this week’s edition, Zuckerberg revealed how many hours he actually works a week and what he actually does for “work,” while also answering some great questions by fellow billionaire entrepreneur Sir Richard Branson and ageless Latin American diva Shakira.
