Facebook Flashback To 2006!
An old video of Mark Zuckerberg at Facebook’s Palo Alto office in June 2005 has recently surfaced. That was over six years ago! The clip is apparently part of a longer 40-minute-interview from a documentary shot by Ray Hafner and Derek Franzese. Although the full interview has never been shown in it’s entirety, one of those guys could really make some serious money from it, especially since the movie The Social Network was released. Zuckerberg’s initial vision, “an online directory for colleges” seems remarkably short-sighted in light of the fact that Facebook users comprise now 11% of the world’s population and 35% of the world’s online population. And yes, he is drinking a beer in the video, compliments of the keg he kept in the office. WHen this video was shot, he had recently turned 21. He elaborates on the fact that TheFacebook (remember when it used to be THE Facebook?!) only hit 800 schools and hoped to reach 2,000, which is a far cry from Facebook’s current motto, “Making the world open and connected.” World, being the key word in that motto. It’s funny to think that back in 2006 Zuckerberg made the CNN “10 people who don’t matter” list! It just goes to show that nothing is imposible. Enjoy!
