Facebook is blocked in China, nevertheless Zuckerberg has learned to speak fluent Mandarin as indicated in the video, and joined the board of Tsinghua University’s School of Economics and Management a year ago. He was participating in a student dialogue with board members according to the Los Angeles Times, which also reported:
"Zuckerberg's relentless China charm offensive has also included hosting China’s Internet czar at Facebook’s Silicon Valley headquarters last year, and leaving a copy of Xi's [Chinese President Xi Jinping] collected writings in prominent view. A state-run news outlet in China later reported that Zuckerberg told the official, Lu Wei, about the book: "I want my colleagues to understand socialism with Chinese characteristics." (That's Communist party-speak for China's blend of capitalism and authoritarianism.)"Zuckerberg posted on Facebook: “This was also my first real speech in any language sharing how I started thinking about Facebook's mission, what has kept me going through challenging times and what our mission means now looking ahead for our community of 1.5 billion people.”
