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.
“Thanks to Bill Ford and everyone I met for having me,” Mark Zuckerberg said on social media.
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.
“And thanks to the line workers who checked my work,” with a smiley emoji at the end.
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.
