Facebook does a hilariously awful job captioning Mark Zuckerberg’s commencement speech
Man, Mark Zuckerberg is having a hell of a day. Earlier this morning, just before he was scheduled to deliver Harvard University’s commencement speech, his alma mater’s student newspaper website was hacked to elaborately troll the Facebook CEO. And while that got fixed by the time Zuck walked on stage, he’s now facing yet another technical difficulty: Facebook Live’s caption system.
Of course Zuck’s speech was going to be live streamed, but wow, those of us watching from an office setting are getting a hell of a treat.

Maybe a one-off goof? Nay.
I, too, long for a sense of purposos.
