On Wednesday Mark Zuckerberg did his first ever public Q&A in Chinese at Tsinghua University in Beijing to discuss connecting the world, Internet.org, innovation and the early days of Facebook.

Did we mention he did almost the entire session in Mandarin?

As surprising as it is to hear the Facebook CEO break out his Mandarin, it seems that his skill level is far from perfect. Quartz stated "his enunciation was roughly on par with the clarity possible when someone's stepping on your face" and he speaks it "like a seven year old" according to Foreign Policy.


If you are wondering why Zuckerberg knows Mandarin he listed three reasons:

1. His wife is from China and she speaks Mandarin with her grandmother. He wants to interact with her family.
2. He wants to further his understanding about China/Chinese culture. He thinks learning a new language definitely helps him widen his knowledge, etc..
3. He mentioned that Mandarin is hard, he love challenges.

Facebook is preparing a dislike button

You know you hate just about most of the things that you see on Facebook. The baby pictures, the couples in gooey love, the political nonsense, the insanely inaccurate information, the list goes on forever and grows every day.

Well, rejoice, you cynical a**holes.

Mark Zuckerberg confirmed during a Facebook headquarters Q&A Sept. 15.

According to Re/code:

"I think people have asked about the dislike button for many years. Today is a special day because today is the day I can say we're working on it and shipping it," Zuckerberg said.

He told the audience that the company realized people want to express emotions other than positivity, especially around posts about sensitive subjects like the Syrian refugee crisis.

He didn't give further information as to what the "Dislike" button might look like. We could look to the new "reactions" product from workplace chatting app Slack as a possibility. Slack's reactions allow people to comment with a full range of emojis on others' posts, which leads to everything from check marks to laughter and food images to animated hands clapping.



We won't put all of our eggs in this thumbs down basket just yet. This is in direct opposition to what Zuckerberg said just nine months ago when he said there were no plans to introduce such a thing.

But if you'd like to take today's news as the truth, then strap on your dancin' hooves and get hatin'.

This is what 15-year-old Mark Zuckerberg's first website looked like. Seeing as it was made in the '90s, that yellow eye was pretty fancy schmancy.

It's hard to believe, but it's been ten years since the inception of "TheFacebook" and the beginning of the social media generation as we know it.

In honor of the event, Facebook has made a custom compilation featuring some of the most well-liked and most-commented photos on their network right here.*

Facebook recently hit one billion users. Yup, that's right: 1/7th of the entire world's population is ridin' the Zuck Truck. Aside from riding a figurative automobile with a cheesy name that I just made up, here are some other things that those billion people have in common.
