During his visit to Moscow, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg had a meeting with Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev and then made an appearance on TV show "The Evening Urgant" on Channel One. The Facebook CEO talked to the host and then helped him fill out a page in the social network.
Zuckerberg also told the audience and the host that he came to Russia to recruit technical specialists. "We have a platform, in all countries we create applications for computers and phones. Now we want to make Facebook successful for Russia too," he said.
When asked why the blue color is used in the design of Facebook, he replied: "I am color blind. Blue is the one I see best."
Shortly before the show, on Monday, Zuckerberg gave Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev a T-shirt with the web address of his page on the social network: facebook.com/Dmitry.Medvedev.
The young American billionaire met the Russian prime minister in the Gorki residence outside Moscow, reports MR7.ru. The parties discussed the issues concerning copyright on the Internet. Medvedev believes that copyright holders could set the boundaries for the protection of copyright.
"If an object is somehow not specified on the Internet as an object that requires strict protection, then it can be used freely," said Medvedev. Zuckerberg responded that his company was "very seriously about the protection of copyright."
The Facebook CEO arrived in Moscow on Sunday. He walked around the center of the Russian capital and visited a McDonald's restaurant. One of the main goals of Zuckerberg's visit to Moscow is to talk to the winners of Facebook World Hack.
