Mark Zuckerberg appears to have continued his impressive improvement in his Mandarin skills since his October 2014 when he was at China’s prestigious Tsinghua University and hosted a 30 minute question and answer.
China has impressive growth numbers with 45% of the nation connected tot he internet and with a population of 1.3 billion citizens there is still big potential for growth according to Business Insider.
Facebook is currently blocked in China and the first was to give respect to a country with such a long heritage is to speak their language. Great move Zuckerberg.
As for the other celebrities, it makes sense for them to connect with the public on a public relations standpoint.
