After checking in on Facebook from Newport on Sunday, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has confirmed that he was in the City-By-The-Sea on Sunday and Monday when he announced via his platform that he and his wife visited the Naval War College in Newport and DelSesto Middle School in Providence on Monday.

ABC6 has reported (via The Associated Press) that a woman was surprised to bump into Zuckerberg over the weekend in Newport. Zuckerberg, who celebrated his 5 year wedding anniversary in rural Maine with his wife at the end of last week, recently stated on Facebook that his personal challenge this year is to visit every state he hasn’t spent time in before to learn about people’s hopes and challenges, and how they’re thinking about their work and communities.

The following are the two Facebook posts where Zuckerberg explains what was discussed at each venue.
