The Government and Politics on Facebook page shared the photo above of Zuckerberg and Abe, along with the following caption from Abe, translated from Japanese:
Today I met with Mr. Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook.
I myself am also using my personal Facebook page and the Facebook page of the Prime Minister’s Office to communicate my thoughts to the world, and I have been able to interact with a great number of people.
In addition, Facebook and other social networking services, often called “SNS,” are extremely effective during disasters in ascertaining people’s safety and in furnishing information swiftly.
SNS also provides chances for small and medium-sized companies in Japan’s local economy to secure new business opportunities by connecting with people around the world.
Mr. Zuckerberg made highly encouraging remarks to me that he would cooperate to the greatest possible extent.
