Facebook’s Zuckerberg starts China visit
BEIJING (AP) - Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg started a visit to China on Monday with a tour of the offices of the country’s top search engine, while his own social networking site remained blocked on the mainland.
“Obviously I’m not going to deny what’s in the pictures,” Kaiser Kuo, Baidu’s director of international communications, told The Associated Press by telephone. Zuckerberg had lunch with Baidu CEO Robin Li, Kuo said, adding that he didn’t know what they talked about. He said the two had met before.
China censors Internet content it deems politically sensitive and blocks many websites, including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. But curiosity has been high about Zuckerberg’s visit to China and any possible business angles.
Zuckerberg is traveling with his girlfriend, Priscilla Chan, and no apparent entourage.
Aside from a visit Monday morning to a Tibetan temple in Beijing, the rest of his schedule in China is not known.
