Facebook co-founder, Chairman, and CEO Mark Zuckerberg spent some time at Ford’s River Rouge Complex on Thursday, working alongside regular Ford workers in helping to assemble a few brand-new Ford F-150 pickup trucks. The social media mogul spent his time “adding antennas, cleats and drilling screws,” he said in a post on the very website he co-created.
The stunt was part of Zuckerberg’s New Year’s resolution to “connect with more Americans” (in real life) and work to heal divisions spurred by technology and globalization, reports the Detroit Free Press. It was the business executive’s first visit to Michigan, he says, and he plans to move around the country over the rest of the year, meeting people and doing similar activities in every single state.
If you’re frightened at the prospect that a billionaire tech mogul without more than a few hours of experience under his belt might have had a hand in assembling your next Ford F-150, fear not; Zuckerberg says that line workers checked over his work.
