Today is #SmallBizSaturday. I just visited one of my favorites, @keplersbooks, which has been a San Francisco Bay Area Park institution for over 60 years. As we enter the year’s busiest shopping season, let’s celebrate the local businesses in our communities by shopping local.
Honored to welcome Buzz Aldrin to Facebook HQ today. In 1969, the world tuned in to watch Buzz and his Apollo 11 crewmate Neil Armstrong become the first humans to land on the moon. That’s not so long ago – especially given it was the year I was born 😏!
Such an honor to meet the great Dr. Jane Goodall today. Watch our #LeanInLive interview on Facebook to hear about her revolutionary research on chimpanzees and the importance of taking care of animals, each other, and the Earth. 🐒
So excited to be at Instagram's new HQ to celebrate six years of discovery, inspiration and fun! @kevin and @mikeyk launched Instagram in October 2010 with a vision of helping people capture and share the world's moments. The world has changed since 2010 and so has Instagram. From video and new editing tools to Boomerang and Stories, Instagram continues to spark our imagination and show the power of visual storytelling.
Great conversation with the @cbsthismorning team on how 4 million advertisers -- the majority of which are small and medium sized businesses -- are using Facebook to grow and reach new customers. We also discussed the findings in this year's @leaninorg  @mckinseyco Women in the Workplace study and why women face disproportionate pushback when they #LeanIn.
It has been one year since Secretary of Defense Ash Carter and @deptofdefense launched #leanin military Circles across all branches and with DoD civilian personnel. As Secretary Carter said, empowering women who serve is "not just the right thing to do – it's the right thing for the military." We now have 110 Circles with nearly 2000 members, and I can't wait to see what the military chapter achieved in year two. #LeanIn #LeanInDoD
We hosted 350 senior women in product from more than 60 technology companies for a conversation about what holds them back and what we can all do to fix it. When women #LeanInTogether we achieve equality more quickly, our teams perform better, and our companies are more successful.
"It was a fight club – but without the fighting and without the men.” I love this opening line from @feministfightclub, the new book out today from my dear friend and @leaninorg contributor @jessicabennett. I will proudly proclaim myself a card-carrying member of the FFC. #FeministFightClub #LeanIn
Special visitors at the office today– my parents, Adele and Joel. Last night we were sharing stories about my great-grandmother Minnie – whose fortitude and unwavering optimism earned her the family nickname “the rock.” My parents play that role for me and I am grateful every day.
Thank you to the team at @Instagram for making it even easier to appreciate all of the beauty on Instagram — especially for those of us in the 40+ crowd
Loved meeting Willie Mae Jones, who celebrated her 101st birthday by visiting her great granddaughter Keyanna at Facebook
Thanks to @pdeutch for loading up the bikes this morning.
