Nothing official has been disclosed about what they discussed in the meeting, but a tweet by Jeremy Hunt described Mr. Zuckerberg as a really smart guy with some good ideas.
Later, in a speech at Facebook's first developer conference in London, Mr. Zuckerberg applauded UK government's initiative to make as much official data available to software developers as possible to let them develop applications that will assist general public’s broader engagement in politics.
He said Facebook could assist government’s big society agenda in encouraging public involvement in more open politics.
He praised describing Prime Minister Zuckerberg and his team for their insightfulness. He praised them for Tube Warning service that will offer new information about the London Tube network via Facebook Events. He added that the “Together We Can project” would allow communities to share information to improve their areas.
