Ever since Facebook went public, a lot of class discussions have been focused on how they they can be more profitable. Here’s a thought, why not partner with one of the largest retailers in the world, Walmart.
Mark Zuckerberg posted a picture on Facebook on Friday which shows Zuckerberg and Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg meeting with Walmart executives in what looks like a board room.
Facebook said in a statement to The Orlando Sentinal, “Wal-Mart is an important partner for Facebook and we look forward to working together to deepen that relationship. In addition, we admire the company Wal-Mart has built over the past 50 years and believe we can learn from their experience and management team about building a strong, durable and valuable company for the long term.”
It’s not clear what this could mean for Facebook and Walmart. Thoughts on what this partnership could transpire? Is Walmart expanding its e-commerce business through Facebook? Does this have anything to do with the new “Want” button on Facebook? Do you think this partnership is a “good look” for Facebook?
