It's not hard to imagine that Mark Zuckerberg and Eduardo Saverin would have beef with each other, considering how things turned out for the social network and the lack of part thereof of Eduardo's involvement in it. But in one of his rare media appearances, Saverin mentioned that he does not hold a grudge against Zuckerberg.
In an interview with Brazilian news magazine Veja the Miami-bred billionaire explains how he's not mad with Mark.
"I have only good things to say about Mark, there are no hard feelings between us. His focus on the company since its very first day is anything short of admirable. He was a visionary, he always knew that the only way for Facebook to grow was to maintain its central idea, that of people truly presenting themselves as they are, without nicknames or pseudonyms. That's Facebook's biggest strength, what allowed us to transform it into an instrument of protest, like what happened in Egypt, but also in an instrument of business, not to mention a way of naturally connecting with friends."
Mark Zuckerberg was in a Q&A episode and was asked quite a lot of questions. One of the questions was just how many hours he actually works a week and what he actually does for work. Questions also came from billionaire Sir Richard Branson and pop-star Shakira. Check it out: Read more
