Some families might not be not be so accommodating. According to the Youngstown Vindicator, the Moore family "didn’t know who was coming for dinner until about 20 minutes before Mark Zuckerberg arrived."

The Facebook CEO dined Friday with the family, who live in a community about about 55 miles southeast of Cleveland. The Ohio visit is part of Zuckerberg's pledge, made in January, to visit Americans in all 50 states.

According to the Vindicator:

"Zuckerberg had asked his staff to find Democrats who had voted for President Donald Trump in November’s election, Moore said. Moore, who voted for former President Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012, campaigned heavily for Trump.'

Quoted in the Vindicator, Daniel Moore said: “We got to know a very cool guy.... Just down-to-earth and real easy to talk to.”

Zuckerberg posted a photo of himself at the Moore family dining table on Facebook, of course.
