Nov 8, 2011  •  Post A Comment

Steve Jobs, the late Apple co-founder, advised Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg on his company’s focus and management, according to an interview with Zuckerberg on "Charlie Rose," Bloomberg reports.

"I had a lot of questions for him,” Zuckerberg said. Those included "how to build a team around you that’s focused on building as high quality and good things as you are.”

Jobs told his biographer Walter Isaacson that he admired Zuckerberg for not "selling out." Zuckerberg, 27, is ranked No. 14 on Forbes magazine’s ranking of the wealthiest people in the U.S.

The story adds: "Jobs and Zuckerberg also talked about ‘the aesthetics and kind of mission orientation of companies,’ Zuckerberg said in the interview with Charlie Rose."

Jobs, who died Oct. 5, took it upon himself to advise up-and-coming tech executives during his final days, according to the Isaacson biography.
