VIDEO: Mark Zuckerberg Chats With Savannah Guthrie Of ‘Today’ About Facebook’s First 10 Years

MarkZuckerbergToday650With the 10-year anniversary of Facebook’s founding coming up Tuesday, Feb. 4, Co-Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg has been a media darling of late, and his latest stop was NBC’s morning news program, “Today.”

Zuckerberg spoke with Savannah Guthrie about the social network’s first 10 years, saying:

I remember really vividly having pizza with my friends a day or two after I opened up the first version of Facebook at my school (Harvard University).

I was just really excited that we were doing it at one school. And, you know, at the time, I thought, “You know, someone needs to build a service like this for the world.” I always thought that that was this incredibly important thing to have happen. But I just never thought that we’d be the ones to help do it.

When I look back over the past 10 years, one of the questions that I ask myself is: Why were we the ones to help do this? And I think a lot of what it comes down to is, we just cared more.
