Mark Zuckerberg speaks Mandarin in the land that blocks facebook

Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook, speaks Mandarin at Tsinghua University in China, which has not lifted its ban on the social networking site since the Xinjiang crackdown in 2009, where videos and recounts of police violence were posted and shared widely via the site, and youtube, which has also been blocked since.

The man is now invited to be part of the board of advisors of Tsinghua University’s School of Economics and Management.

In this 30-minute Q&A session with Chinese students in which Mark was able to answer questions in English and Chinese, all in Mandarin, he touched on the work of facebook as well as a bit of his personal life.
