Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg meets Pope Francis

Pair discuss ‘how to use communication technologies to alleviate poverty’

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, have met Pope Francis at the Vatican.

Vatican spokesman Greg Burke said that one topic of discussion was “how to use communication technologies to alleviate poverty, encourage a culture of encounter, and make a message of hope arrive, especially to those most in need”.

The atmosphere appeared informal, with the chat taking place in the Santa Marta residence, the guest house in Vatican City where the pope lives.

Zuckerberg wore a dark suit and tie for the occasion while Chan wore a black, knee-length dress.

    I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall if the two had any serious discussion: one the leader of one of the largest unevidenced superstitions/myths in the world and an avowed atheist with some Buddist “Karma” beliefs.

    You’re on a Catholic webpage making nonsense comments like that? Go somewhere else and seek attention.
