SAN DIEGO, CALIF. (The Street) -- A week after being peppered by Wall Street analysts, Facebook (FB) CEO Mark Zuckerberg answered to a more important audience -- the 1.35 billion people who use his social network each month -- and revealed something the world has always wanted to know.
Why does Zuckerberg wear the same gray t-shirt every day? For starters, it's not the exact same shirt, he insisted with back up from COO Sheryl Sandberg, as he owns more than one, but more to the point, the Facebook CEO said he'd rather focus all of his energy on Facebook.
"I want to clear my life, so I have to make as few decisions as possible," he said.
The revelation was made during Facebook's first-ever public question-and-answer session, streamed live Thursday evening to viewers from a special Facebook event page. In the week preceding the event, Zuckerberg fielded questions through a new Facebook event page called "Q&A with Mark, " and also took audience questions from a small crowd gathered at the company's Menlo Park, Calif., headquarters.
Zuckerberg addressed some of Facebook members' biggest concerns, including questions as to when businesses can expect better distribution for their stories and why Facebook is forcing its users to install Messenger as a separate mobile application.
Arguably, the most material disclosure came in response to a question on information overload. Zuckerberg used the query as an opportunity to promise more controls for News Feed. Facebook, he said, is working on tools to help members "tune" their News Feed, though he didn't reveal specifics.
