Zuckerberg Interviewed by Charlie Rose on Google, Steve Jobs, Social Media

Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg appeared in an interview with TV journalist Charlie Rose on the PBS channel to talk about Facebook, Jobs, Google and social media.

When asked about the impending ‘war' for the future with Apple, Amazon and Google, Zuckerberg, said that Google was particularly competitive but in many ways, companies have and can work together for the future.

"People like to talk about war. Google I think in some ways is more competitive and certainly is trying to build their own little version of Facebook. But there are a lot of ways in which the companies actually work together," Zuckerberg, said, adding that Facebook was most likely to forge partnerships with Amazon and Apple.

Among the topics broached by Zuckerberg, who was also accompanied with Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg, were the rise of social media, China's war with online freedom, the Arab Spring, the company's impending IPO and such.

He also mentioned that deceased Apple CEO Steve Jobs had given him some advice on how to become a great CEO and create a company that lasts the tests of time. Jobs, who had taken to advising young Silicon Valley CEOs near his end, had discussed "the aesthetics and kind of mission orientation of companies", Zuckerberg informed.
