Zuckerberg says Facebook is exploring models for building those connections. Instead, he says the visits around the country are in order "to get a broader perspective".

Facebook's algorithms now focus on connecting you to "people you may know" and have been blamed for giving users' the unfounded perception that most other people hold political and social views similar to their own, but CEO Mark Zuckerberg wants to move past that and strengthen the social network's community by connecting users to people they should know.

Zuckerberg and Chan then travelled to Providence on Monday to visit the Del Sesto Middle School.

Gisele Borghani (bor-GAHN'-ee) says she and her family were walking to the beach Sunday when they almost ran into Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan.

Zuckerberg touched on how he wants Facebook's role in society to evolve in a lengthy post on Sunday summarizing some of his learnings from touring the US.

Mr Trump fired the former FBI director, James Comey, last week, setting off a firestorm of leaks and investigations. But he added: "I haven't lost my confidence in the president to be our president, I just haven't".

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan have spent a day hiking around Mount Katahdin in ME and talking with local residents on their anniversary weekend.

The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, the Facebook couple's organization, has given major donations to Raimondo's Office of Innovation to assist with the personalized learning program, which launched last September.

Mark Zuckerberg's 50-state listening tour has descended on the region, as the Facebook CEO and cofounder prepares to deliver Harvard's 2017 commencement address Thursday. "They were just minding their own business like two normal people". The CEO's early conclusion seems to be that the social network needs to connect people who should know each other rather than those who already do.

According to Borghani, Chan was still wearing her new ME hat.

The post also talks about how Facebook helped people connect, but that more than just adding friends, people also need to be "with people you should know - mentors and people outside your circle who care about you and can provide a new source of support and inspiration".
