Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg toured the offices of China’s top search engine on Monday during a visit that has sparked speculation the social networking magnate is looking for business opportunities in the world’s largest internet market.
Facebook is blocked on the mainland, but Mr Zuckerberg has expressed a business interest in China and has studied Mandarin.
Photos of Zuckerberg’s visit to Baidu Inc. were quickly posted online.
Kaiser Kuo, Baidu’s director of international communications, told The Associated Press that Mr Zuckerberg had lunch with Baidu CEO Robin Li. He said he didn’t know what they talked about but added that the two had met before.
