Bloomberg has offered some details on the advice Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg sought from Steve Jobs on how best to build the social network.
“I had a lot of questions for him,” Zuckerberg said in an interview with Charlie Rose that’s due to air today. The topics included, “how to build a team around you that’s focused on building as high quality and good things as you are.” [...] Jobs and Zuckerberg also talked about “the aesthetics and kind of mission orientation of companies,”
Apple is well known for focusing on tight product lines in order to create a clear path for consumers. Facebook has been narrowing their focus on products and design in similar ways with features like Chat and the new Timeline. Still, it's interesting that Jobs offered advice and Zuckerberg sought it after the obvious differences the two companies have had in recent year.
