Jerry Seinfeld thinks Mark Zuckerberg 'may have something' with Facebook

Not an early adopter, our Seinfeld.

IT’S SAFE TO say that most people are fairly aware of the benefits of Facebook and believe the hype. Until recently, however, Jerry Seinfeld wasn’t one of them.

The comedian, who is a recent convert to Facebook, wrote a status on Friday in which he tagged Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and informed him that he “may have something”.

What sparked the change of heart? The season 5 premiere of his web series Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee enjoyed a record number of views, most of which appears to be down to Facebook.

He then shared this photo, which shows that the status posting a link to the season premiere was seen by over 12 million people.

For his park, Mark Zuckerberg thanked Jerry for the comment and welcomed him to Facebook.

All this begs the question: does Jerry Seinfeld know about this newfangled mode of communication called ‘e-mail’?
