According to The Korea Times, Mark Zuckerberg, the inventor of the social network we all hate using every day but kind of have to due to social obligations, is in Korea today to meet with Lee Jay-yong. That’s the guy who will eventually run Samsung Electronics.

What will the two talk about behind closed doors? The official quote from Samsung is:

“Zuckerberg will visit Samsung’s main office in Seocho-dong, southern Seoul, Tuesday. The two will discuss ways to strengthen their strategic partnership that covers content and manufacturing.”

In other words, no comment. At this point I’d like to highlight the face that Larry Page visited Samsung in their home country of Korea back in April. Now I could speculate as to what Samsung is thinking, but that would just be a waste of keystrokes. History has taught me that Samsung is hungry, very hungry, and they’ll do crazy things to remain on top. I’m not suggesting Samsung is going to buy Facebook, but … you never know.
