On Steve Jobs:
Mark Zuckerberg: Oh, I don’t know. I mean, he – he’s amazing. He was amazing. I mean, he – I had a lot of questions for him on –
Charlie Rose: Like what?
Mark Zuckerberg: How to build a team around you, right, that’s focused on building as high quality and good things as you are. How to keep an organization focused, right, when I think the tendency for larger companies is to try to fray and go into all these different areas. Yeah, I mean a lot just on the aesthetics and kind of mission orientation of companies. I mean, Apple is a company that is so focused on just building products that – for their customers and their users. And – and that’s like – it’s such a deep part of their mission is build these beautiful products for their users. And I think we connected a lot on this level of, okay, Facebook has this mission that’s really more than just trying to build a company, right, that has a market cap or a value. It’s like we’re trying to do this thing in the world. And I don’t know, a lot of it I just think we connected on that level.
Charlie Rose: Did he ever suggest that Apple might buy Facebook?
Mark Zuckerberg: No. I don’t think it ever really got there. I mean, nor would I have wanted to sell it.
