Facebook Founder Mark Zuckerberg Learnt A Lot From Steve Jobs

The 27 year old CEO/creator of Facebook – Mark Zuckerberg left Harvard University as a dropout with a novel idea. He received a rock-star welcome during his first official visit (to recruit for Facebook) since he left for California’s Silicon Valley in 2004. He made his recruitment pitch to 250 students at Harvard after a similar meeting at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Mark Zuckerberg says he received some words of wisdom from Apple’s late co-founder Steve Jobs who told the young Silicon Valley billionaire to focus on building the right team for a “high quality” company. Mark Zuckerberg said Steve Jobs advised him on how to improve his company’s focus and also discussed with him about “the aesthetics and kind of mission orientation of companies”. Mark Zuckerberg had a lot of questions for Steve Jobs, including, “how to build a team around you that’s focused on building as high-quality and good things as you are”.

Steve Jobs, who died on October 5, had told his biographer Walter Isaacson that he admired Mark Zuckerberg for not “selling out”.

Mark Zuckerberg had  dropped out in 2004 to start Facebook, which now has 800 million users and 3000 employees. He has been named the 9th most powerful person in the world by Forbes magazine with a net worth of  $17.5 billion. He is in the same league. He is really tech rock-star and in the same category as of Bill Gates of Microsoft and Steve Jobs of Apple. Innovators like Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates did not study much but they had large visions in their head and executed their dreams and they will be remembered for ever for their path breaking innovations.
