Mark Zuckerberg Q&A

Mark’s answers were frequently lengthy and insightful and, as you saw, some were quite humorous.

My son, Tyler, recent college graduate searching for a career in graphic design, web design and, of course, social media jumped in asking how he could get a job at Facebook.

There were countless questions on Internet.org, which is a Facebook-led initiative bringing together technology leaders, nonprofits and local communities to connect the two-thirds of the world that doesn’t have Internet access. Mark’s response to Khizer Ahmed was very comprehensive.

Mark Zuckerberg Q&A

The use of your ‘real name’ on Facebook has resulted in countless protests including a group that slowed down the San Francisco Pride Parade on Sunday. Alex Kantrowitz asked about the use of real names on Facebook. I was impressed with Mark’s answer. When Facebook says that they require your “real name” that doesn’t mean that you have to use your legal name! You can use the name that you “go by, what your friends call you.” That clear’s up a lot!

Thank you Mark Zuckerberg!

Last but not least, what was my question? Well, I posted my question within the first 3 minutes and I was sure that Mark Zuckerberg would answer me. When I saw that the question’s immediately after mine were from Arnold Schwarzenegger and Arianna Huffington my hope faded. There were 144,441 likes and 4,223 shares! Mark did go over his time yet never got to my question so, I’ll ask all of you:

    I was disappointed that Mark jumped around so much in the questions he answered and very obviously answered many of the questions from ‘famous’ or well known names versus the average Facebook user. In most cases, his answers were fun and I like how they were not all focused on Facebook. That being said, he clearly ignored many of the questions that were asked about Facebook. I had hoped that he would answer your question as it is a valid one for many. Maybe next time!

      I thought the same thing Jen! Mark did answer the questions from famous people, as you would expect. I wonder how big his team was for reviewing and answering questions AND how many answers were pre-written! ~ Heidi

    My question would be: “How long does he see Facebook being relevant? Will it fade like Myspace or morph into something different than what we know today?”

      GREAT question Deborah. I wonder how Zuck would have answered you! ~ Heidi

    Hi Heidi,

    What a great recap of Mark Zuckerberg’s Q&A! I’m sorry that I missed this, but so glad that I received an email notifying me that you had published this.

    Great question about what I would have asked Mark. I’ll have to think about this for a while and get back to you. My first thought was to ask something similar to your question.

    I love Tyler’s question. Did he ever pursue the employment options?

    I hope you are having a fantastic weekend. Thank you for the great recap!

      Thanks Robin! Yes, Tyler did apply for a job with Facebook. Fingers crossed!
