SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is on stage before a standing-room-only audience at a tech conference in San Francisco.
He's wearing a gray T-shirt, jeans and sneakers as he's giving his first interview since the company's rocky initial public offering in May. Facebook Inc.'s stock has lost half its value since the IPO.
Zuckerberg is acknowledging that during the talk, saying "the performance of the stock has obviously been disappointing."
Zuckerberg is appearing Wednesday in a "fireside chat" at the San Francisco Disrupt conference organized by technology blog TechCrunch.
He'll be talking to Michael Arrington, the fiery founder of TechCrunch. Arrington, who no longer works at TechCrunch, is not known for mincing his words.
