Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s Founder/CEO and Time Magazine’s newly crowned Person of the Year has just been spotted at the head offices of Baidu in Beijing, China. Robin Li (founder of Baidu) gave Mark and his girlfriend Priscilla Chan a tour of the building, where these photos were snapped. The social networking pioneer has spoken a few times this year about formulating plans to bring the world’s most popular social networking site to the the country with the world’s largest population of online users. This meeting was so highly confidential that even Baidu’s Head of PR didn’t know about the visit ahead of time.

There had been rumors flying around that Baidu was in fact thinking of buying facebook, but those were quickly squashed. No news yet on what the two multi-billionaires were meeting about, but as soon as we hear we’ll let you know.

Rumors that Baidu is about to acquire Facebook are greatly exaggerated…Robin and Mark have known each other for a while. Mark’s interest in China is well known. Keep the speculation in check. – From Kaiser Kuo (@kaiserkuo), Baidu’s Director of International Communications.
