Mark Zuckerberg to tour US over New Year’s resolution

Mark Zuckerberg has announced plans to spend 2017 touring the US – in the Facebook founder’s latest ambitious New Year’s resolution.

He posted that this year’s personal challenge is to “have visited and met people in every state in the US”.

The 32-year-old tech titan added that he needs to travel to about 30 states to fulfil the pledge.

His previous New Year challenges have included running 365 miles, reading 25 books and learning Mandarin.

The US tour comes amid speculation that a future personal challenge by Mr Zuckerberg could include running for president of the United States.

He added that the road trips would help him to make “the most positive impact as the world enters an important new period”.

“My trips this year will take different forms – road trips with wife Priscilla, stops in small towns and universities, visits to our offices across the country, meetings with teachers and scientists, and trips to fun places you recommend along the way,” the statement continued.
