Ukraine President to Mark Zuckerberg: Please Open a Facebook Office in Our Country

Actually he said pretty please with sugar on top.

Petro Poroshenko

The President of Ukraine really wants Facebook to open an office in his country. Petro Poroshenko posted an open plea to Mark Zuckerberg on the former’s Facebook page to that affect.

The post read, “Dear Mark Zuckerberg, we have to use all available channels to get reaction from global companies. Ukraine does need a Ukrainian Facebook office!”

This seems more like the kind of thing that someone would post about and ex-girlfriend imploring her to take him back. It makes the person seem sad and desperate and this is just how the Ukrainian President appears in his posting.

A clearly generic statement that must have been prepared by his PR team and used elsewhere, Zuckerberg responded talking about a town hall to be held on Facebook on Thursday.

It read: “I’ll be hosting our next Townhall Q&A at Facebook HQ on Thursday, May 14 at 4:30pm pacific time. This is an opportunity for me to hear from you and the rest of our community about how to serve you better.”

“If you have a question you’d like me to answer, leave a comment below. You can vote for questions by liking them.

“Next week I’ll answer as many questions I can for about an hour. You can watch the livestream on the Q&A with Mark page on Thursday, and we’ll post the video there afterwards. I look forward to answering your questions and I hope you’ll tune in.”

According to Ukraine Today, in the last year the number of active Ukrainian Facebook users has increased by 25% to 4 million. While it certainly makes sense for that country to court Facebook, does its President not have more pressing matters to concern himself with.

The country is still reeling from losing the Crimea to Russia and further Russian military incursions into its territory. It is facing a number of problems due to that invasion.

So maybe President Petro Poroshenko might have one of his people take a novel approach and try calling someone at Facebook directly.
