The interviewer asked him what "The Facebook" was. Zuckerberg replied:
"It's an online directory that connects people through universities and colleges through their social networks there. You sign on, you make a profile about yourself by answering some questions, entering some information, whats your concentration or major in school, contact information about phone numbers, instant messaging screen names — anything you want to tell — interests, what books you like, movies, and most importantly, who your friends are. Then you can browse around, see who peoples friends are, and just check out peoples online identities and see how people portray themselves and just find some interesting information about people."
