Facebook co-founder and chief executive Mark Zuckerberg is courting Hulu chief Jason Kilar for a top job with the social network.
Eager to break into the media business, Zuckerberg has been eying Kilar for a while, hoping his network and industry ties would help Facebook with its fledgling offerings, according to the New York Post. From the report:
Facebook clearly harbors content ambitions and could become a destination where people consume as well as talk about movies, music and TV shows. . . . The social network is also eager to prove its worth to Madison Avenue and is looking to attract online video advertising. Few know better than Kilar what’s involved.
