Facebook founder Zuckerberg spotted in China!

Well, call this a breaking news if you will. Mark Zuckerberg is in China. The founder & CEO of Facebook and Time Magazine’s newly crowned Person of the Year has just been spotted at the head offices of Baidu in Beijing. Robin Li, founder of Baidu, gave Mark and his girlfriend Priscilla Chan a tour of the building, and they even had lunch together.

Baidu’s International Communications Director, Kaiser Kuo said the following of the meeting:
“…rumors that Baidu is about to acquire Facebook are greatly exaggerated“. He later adds, “C’mon people. Robin and Mark have known each other for a while. Mark’s interest in China is well known. Keep the speculation in check.”
Speculations has been rife about Mark’s trip to Beijing, and some folks are guessing that Baidu and Facebook may work together to create something new. Anyway, the meeting is a highly secretive one and Baidu employees said that they do not know anything about the visit at all.
