An amateur video interview with Mark Zuckerberg from back in the day, when Facebook was just a virtually unheard of startup, has just resurfaced.
Wearing a white t-shirt (surprisingly, not grey) and gym shorts while holding a plastic red cup full of beer, the baby-faced Zuckerberg looks like a typical college kid in the 2005 video as he explains the concept of TheFacebook.com and discusses his hope for its future.
Another reminder of the young entrepreneur’s age is the person doing a keg stand (remember those?) and the full fridge of beer.
Zuckerberg is refreshingly grounded when talking about the massive spread of Facebook at Harvard, Columbia, Yale, and Stanford. He also offers a humble answer when asked where he plans on taking Facebook after it expands into more universities.
“There doesn’t necessarily have to be more,” says Zuckerberg. “A lot of people are focused on taking over the world, doing the biggest thing, or getting the most users. But part of making a difference and doing something cool is focusing intensely.”
Well, it’s safe to say that “focusing” paid off. Just two later, Facebook indeed began to take over the world as users young and old signed up. As of December of 2015, Facebook had 1.04 billion daily active users.
