Bush friends Facebook, takes Q&A from Zuckerberg

By Cecilia Kang

President George W. Bush will hit the social Web on Monday with a live Q&A on Facebook hosted by CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

The company said Bush will visit its Palo Alto headquarters and at 2 p.m. PST he'll speak to employees about his new book "Decision Points."

Zuckerberg and General Counsel Ted Ullyot will lead the discussion and Q&A with employees and viewers, which will be livestreamed on Facebook Live. Ullyot served on Bush's White House staff.

Here is The Post's Jonathan Yardley's review of "Decision Points," which he called readable but flat. In it, he talked about how the invasion in Iraq was based on intelligence that largely proved to be false. And he said he reacted too slowly to Katrina relief efforts.

Bush has 610,000 fans of his Facebook page. Facebook, meanwhile, faces increased scrutiny along with other Web sites over privacy practices. An emboldened Republican party in Congress has vowed to create rules to protect consumer privacy as Web sites track information about consumer habits and preferences to target users with tailored advertisements.
