A Rare Glimpse Of A Young Mark Zuckerberg Talking About "The Facebook"
Earlier this week we brought you Mark Zuckerberg's 10 year vision for Facebook. But a rare glimpse of a young Mark Zuckerberg talking about "The Facebook", before they dropped the "The" in 2005 has surfaced online.
The exchange between Zuckerberg and an unknown interviewer discuss "Facebook the online directory", where you can lookup your class mates and find all the information you may want to know about that person.
Once you get over the shock of seeing the billionaire not sitting in his iconic grey t-shirt and flip-flops, it's amazing to hear him discuss the origins of Facebook, what it was like seeing other people actually use "The Facebook" and saying "like" several hundred times - think we know where the "like" button came from...

What Zuck doesn't know is two years from when he was speaking in 2005, Facebook would explode all over the globe and 11 years later he would be responsible for a boom in social media, connecting 1 billion people and causing you to check your phone every two minutes in case someone posted a picture of their food.
Checkout the video below and let us know what you think of Mark's original vision for "The Facebook". Personally, I'm surprised by how big a deal it was for him to see other people login to the site.
