Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg to give '60 Minutes' interview about 'Social Network'
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg will appear in his first television interview since the Hollywood film "The Social Network" debuted in October.
In it, Zuckerberg talks about the film (and presumably the unflattering portrait it painted of him), as well as his company’s direction and his rising profile as its CEO.
Zuckerberg seems to have made peace with the film, which is getting Oscar buzz. He's likely to come across better today than he did in 2008 when he appeared as "the face of Facebook" on
"60 Minutes" at the age of 23 and helped Stahl set up her Facebook account.
"You seem to be replacing Larry and Sergey as the people out here who everyone's talking about," Stahl said to Zuckerberg during that interview.
Zuckerberg sniffed, paused, blinked. "You're just staring at me," Stahl said. Zuckerberg asked: "Is that a question?"
