Mark Zuckerberg Says Steve Jobs Helped Him Build Facebook

Mark Zuckerberg Says Steve Jobs Helped Him Build Facebook

One of the few contemporaries in tech that Steve Jobs openly admired was Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. In Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson, the Apple founder said that he admired Zuckerberg “for not selling out, for wanting to make a company.” In other words, Jobs saw a lot of himself in Zuckerberg: a young kid out to change the world.

Does Apple Want To Buy Facebook?

Does Apple Want To Buy Facebook?

Over the weekend, Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg met for some dinner, and smart money would rest on the bet that they were trying to work out some sort of deal where Facebook and Ping come together at last.
