|Some decided that Mark Zuckerberg was thinking about political career as Facebook founder announced his new personal challenge for 2017. In previous years, he has learned Mandarin, pledged to run a mile per day and built a virtual assistant to control his home. In 2017, Mark is going to make sure he has visited and met people in every state in the country. Since he has already been to about 20 states, he will have to travel to another 30 by the end of 2017.
Zuckerberg posted his pledge on Facebook (unsurprisingly), explaining that he wanted to “get out and talk to more people about how they’re living, working and thinking about the future.” Facebook CEO also clarified that he will make road trips with his wife, visit Facebook offices, meet teachers and scientists, and stop in small towns and universities.
Some believe that such plans indicate Zuckerberg’s intention to pursue government service. A month ago, unsealed court filings revealed that he and two board members had discussed how Zuckerberg might pursue a political career, at the same time retaining control of the company. On Christmas Day, Mark also revealed that he is no longer an atheist (one of the biggest liabilities a presidential candidate can have), wishing everyone Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah from his family and himself, and then, when asked whether he was an atheist, he replied he wasn’t. Zuckerberg said he was raised Jewish and currently believes that religion is very important.
The observers also remind that Facebook boss made his first step into politics when the lobby group Fwd.us was launched in 2013 to support immigration reform and expand the H1B visa program, which is largely used in Silicon Valley to hire skilled foreign employees. Zuckerberg is also known for his philanthropic efforts with the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, through which he was going to spend $3bn to “cure, prevent or manage all diseases”.
On the other hand, one may notice that Facebook CEO has tried to avoid the appearance of political bias, even as Facebook has been involved into political controversies – for example, the social network has been in the news for a while due to widespread accusations that it failed to tackle fake news which somehow influenced the outcome of the US presidential election.

he can use FB to make up and run all the fake news he wants to make himself look like a good guy; he's already proven it totally works..
he can use his fake non-profit to finance his campaign...
once in office, he can have the elections be run on FB so that he won't even have to make up fake news the next time around, just pretend he won..
Orwell's got nothing on Brave New World!

|There's plenty of skilled American workers that need jobs, but he's such a nice globalist that he supports bringing in hundreds- if not thousands- of low-wage Indians and others. More money in his pocket. Same with many of these Fortune 500 hypocrites.|

|a snitzle with the policies of clinton, bring them all in to live! screw that.he should go back to his homeland and bring the rest with him, theyve turned it into a toilet bowl,**** diversity|
|So now he wants to control us how we think, what interests we're going to have? No thank you, this is not such a good idea since Google, the Clintons, are all connected via Zuckerberg. The smart people will know I'm right.||
