Photo: Mark Zuckerberg meets with Nigerian founder of FIN, Lola Omolola

Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg received Lola Omolola, Chicago-based Nigerian founder of Facebook group, Females In Nigeria (FIN) at Facebook Headquarters on Tuesday, June 6th.

Taking to his page, Zuckerberg wrote that he will be meeting with Omolola and some administrators of top Facebook groups in Chicago later this month for the first ever Facebook Communities Summit.

His full post below:
"I'm heading to Chicago later this month for our first ever Facebook Communities Summit with a few hundred of our top Facebook group admins.

For the past decade, Facebook has been focused on making the world more open and connected -- and we're always going to keep doing that. But now it's clear we have to do more. We also need to bring people closer together and build common understanding. One of the best ways to do that is by helping people build community, both in the physical world and online.

I've written and talked about these themes throughout this year -- especially in my community letter in February and at Harvard Commencement last month. This summit will be the next chapter and we'll discuss more of what we're building to empower community leaders to bring the world closer together.

Over the past few weeks I've been meeting group admins across the country who are building meaningful communities on Facebook and will be at the summit.

This photo is with Lola, who lives in Chicago and is originally from Nigeria.
Two years ago, she founded a secret Facebook group called Female IN, or FIN. It's a no-judgment space where more than a million women come to talk about everything from marriage and sex to health issues and work problems -- and it's helping end the culture of silence that exists for women in some parts of the world.

I'm looking forward to meeting more admins like Lola and talking about how we can help them do even more to build community. I'll share more info on the summit as we get closer, and I'll stream the event live from my profile later this month.

Yes u are right, women bring there problems and d next thing u see d group blasting hubby without hearing from d other side.and wen u speak d truth they will remove u. One story bout Sumone dat bought fake cream and my friend commented and said igbo pple and fake cream. She wuz den blasted and removed from d group. Am a member of d group,i go there to read stupid stories and stupid comments. Dey can never advice u well. Finfire

Imagine a married woman will write to Lola dat she feels honry or she just smoked weed and d stupid Lola will approve it and post. Oloshi finfire.breaking pples home and even helping dem travel abroad.

Shampepe said...

Yes, exactly my problem with that group, once you tell a woman to pray about marital issues or some kind of problems you get removed/banned from the page. When a poster post her story in the page, you can't correct her or tell her what she's wrong even when it's glaring, if you do they'll say you are judgemental and ban you.
, but they are good in few areas tho'

Una wey dey say d group no good are all liars. How can one advise a woman going through domestic violence in her relationship to turn to God for help? Thats just plain foolishness. Bcuz such advise naim i dey see from some stupid gullible women and yes dem deserve to be blocked. I am a proud finster, yes i said it. Now die

I don't like the group. Not a good one for a real woman who cares for her home.

HEY MRS OR MISS ANONYMOUS TALKING TRASH IT'S A NON JUDGEMENTAL GROUP THAT SUPPORTS WOMEN AND YOU ARE TO GIVE A PRACTICAL ADVISE ON THE GROUPNO ONE SAID YOU SHOULD NOT CALL GOD SO STOP SAYING WRONG THINGS ABOUT THE FOUNDER PLEASE

Tobi Odediran said...

I don't know why Nigerian Women will continue to be this way. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, it's a forum that caters for different women from different background and religion. If you have something to say outside the rule, the contact is there and if you are not fine with it, waka pass or move on.

Am sure y'all would love to work with multinationals which gives similar rule, You can as well resign just because you are advised to keep your personal opinion to yourself.

Busybody everywhere, can't even appreciate success without spewing negativity.
