It's not every day the average Internet user gets to ask the world's fourteenth richest person any question he or she desires, but Facebook users were treated to just that on Tuesday evening.
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg held an impromptu Q&A session with his nearly 32 million fans, inviting them to share whatever's on their mind. In the span of an hour, the social media giant's CEO answered over 15 questions, ranging from what his workday looks like to the company's big plans for Internet.org.
"We've held a few Townhall Q&As over the past few months," Zuckerberg wrote, "and I thought doing a Q&A right here on Facebook would be valuable so more people can participate."
Here are seven things we just learned from the seemingly spontaneous chat.
Zuckerberg "works" just 50-60 hours a week
When asked to reveal how many hours he works in a single day, Zuckerberg said he's usually in the office "no more than 50-60 hours a week" (Tweet This). The 30-year-old explained that he does a great deal of thinking outside of the office on "how to connect the world and serve our community better."
The creator of Facebook doesn't think Facebook hinders face-to-face communication skills
Many critics of the ever-growing digital world claim social media stunts real life social skills, but Zuckerberg isn't one of them. "Tools like Facebook help people communicate mostly with people who aren't directly around them," he wrote. "For example, I can stay in touch with family members who are traveling or friends who live in other countries. It's great to be able to do that since I wouldn't have good opportunities to stay in touch with those folks otherwise."
