oprah winfrey gives live chat on facebook

Oprah engaged in an hour-long chat with Facebook Chief Operating Officier Sheryl Sandberg yesterday in front of an audience of Facebook employees.

Oprah covered a variety of topics including life after The Oprah Winfrey Show, Rosie O'Donnell's show which will take place at her old set at Harpo Studios in Chicago and the fear she has about running her OWN network.

She also discussed how everyone thought she was going to retire just because she stopped doing her show. Oprah shared she had never really intended to retire, but rather the ending of the Oprah Winfrey Show just merely represented one of many chapters in her life.
She brought some of her staff with her to the Palo Altos headquarters of Facebook where the interview was conducted.

"Facebook's goal is to connect everybody in the world, my goal is to connect with people so they see for themselves the greater possibilities of their lives," said Winfrey.

Other well know figures who have previously participated in Facebook's online chats include President Obama and Microsoft's Bill Gates.

25 years ago I had the opportunity to dance with Ms. Winfrey following her hosting Saturday Night Live. She's as gracious now as she was back then (25 yrs ago prior to launching her production company). A memory and picture I shall always treasure . . .forever.
