When the time comes, it looks like Mark Zuckerberg will have some sound dating advice for his daughter, Max.

After one of his fans posted on his Facebook page that she'd like her granddaughters to date nerds who could potentially become another Zuckerberg, the entrepreneur responded saying it would be even better to tell them to be nerds themselves.

Currently on paternity leave, the Facebook CEO posted about his plans to create a personal challenge for 2016 to "build a simple AI to run my home and help me with my work. You can think of it kind of like Jarvis in Iron Man."

An admiring grandmother, Darlene Hackemer Loretto, commented on his post: "I keep telling my granddaughters to date the nerd in school, he may turn out to be a Mark Zuckerberg! Thanks for FB, I've reconnected with family and many old friends and classmates".

Zuckerberg offered a response which has garnered over 30,000 likes: "Even better would be to encourage them to be the nerd in their school so they can be the next successful inventor!"

Loretto then sought to clarify her initial post: "I do encourage them [my granddaughters] to do well. I said it once to them in jest and NEVER did I think anyone would even see this, let alone get the attention it has gotten."
