Facebook chief executive officer and Founder Mark Zuckerberg was speaking at the prestigious IIT Delhi on October 28 at a much-hyped Townhall Q&A. While the young CEO was clearly here in India this time to impress upon people how ‘beneficial’ Internet.org and net neutrality will eventually turn out to be, the even younger techies of India were least interested in it. So what did they ask Mr Zuckerberg?
The most voted question online to be asked to the Facebook head honcho was “How can we stop getting invitations on Candy Crush?” or “How to stop Candy Crush requests?”. The hall broke into laughter when this question was posed to Mark, threatening him to look into it, and he who was rather at a loss for words upon hearing it.
Mark fumbled, “This is why such townhalls are so useful (in jest). This was the top voted question on our thread. So I sent a message to the person who runs the team in charge of our developer platform and I said by the time I do this Town Hall Q&A, I think it would be good if we had a solution to this problem.”
It’s another thing that Mark also answered a question about the Oculus Rift virtual reality system that Facebook is building, and how it could help the blind. It’s Candy Crush that is irritating Indians! Watch this priceless moment from Mark Zuckerberg’s Townhall Q&A!
