Mark Zuckerberg had a very important message for one grandmother that told her granddaughters to "date the nerd in school" since "he may turn out to be a Mark Zuckerberg!"
While on paternity leave, Zuckerberg has been responding to quite a few Facebook comments made on his profile.
One comment came from Darlene Loretto who shared what she tells her granddaughter about the boys in her class.
"I keep telling my grand daughters to Date the nerd in school, he may turn out to be a Mark Zuckerberg! Thanks for FB, I've reconnected with family and many old friends and classmates."
Just an hour later, Zuckerberg responded by saying, "Even better would be to encourage them to *be* the nerd in their school so they can be the next successful inventor!"
So far, his response has garnered over 20,000 likes and continues to rise!
His message is a powerful one, especially considering he and his wife gave birth to a beautiful baby girl named Max just last year. It's good to know that this nerd is going to empower his daughter with dreams of success rather than simply encouraging her to marry rich!
