Facebook Founder, Mark Zuckerberg Gives Pope Francis A Drone


Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan, met Pope Francis on Monday and gave him a Facebook drone.

“It was a meeting we’ll never forget,” Zuckerberg said. “You can feel (the Pope’s) warmth and kindness, and how deeply he cares about helping people.”

Zuckerberg updated his personal page on Facebook (FB, Tech30) with a photo of himself giving the Pope a model of Aquila, a solar-powered aircraft that Facebook hopes will expand Internet access in developing countries.

“Together they spoke about how to use communications technology to alleviate poverty, encourage a culture of encounter, and to communicate a message of hope, especially to the most disadvantaged,” the Vatican Press Office said in a statement.
