Facebook, Wal-Mart chiefs meet to "deepen"
Zuckerberg and his senior management team will spend two days at Wal-Mart
Stores Inc's Bentonville, Arkansas home office this week, meeting with
executives of the world's largest retailer and discussing ways to "deepen"
The Facebook team will meet with Wal-Mart CEO Mike Duke and his lieutenants
on Friday, in the first such meeting between the two corporations' senior
management teams. Zuckerberg and Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl
Sandberg will then speak to hundreds of Wal-Mart employees on Saturday at
the retailer's monthly meeting.
Representatives at both companies declined to discuss the specific agenda
for Friday's meeting other than noting that the summit is intended to
bolster the relationship between the world's No. 1 social network and the
world's largest retailer.
Make sure to give Wal-mart a "like" the next time you hit your facebook
We have tried spending money. We are spending more than we have ever spent
before and it does not work. I say after eight years of this Administration
we have just as much unemployment as when we started. And an enormous
debt to boot! - Henry Morgenthau
