President Obama-Bill Gates-Mark Zuckerberg-Others React to Jobs' Death

The creator of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, admitted in an interview with the PBS chain that the deceased Steve Jobs had given him advice to set up a successful management team.

"I had a lot of questions for him for the way in which he built a team to his around and stayed focused on making good products", said Zuckerberg in the interview with journalist Charlie Rose.

At the same time, he denied that he has negotiated with the former CEO of Apple selling social network, because, said he never had interest in RID company. The recent biography, written by Walter Isaacson, ensured that Jobs had wanted to acquire Facebook.

Accompanied by the Executive Director of Facebook, Sheryl Sandberg, Zuckerberg interview also made reference to his absence in China and its competitor Google +.

As he answered, he has no planned social network to reach the Asian giant in the short term: "For now, there are still plenty of room to develop in other countries, it is not the first thing that we are concerned".

Sandberg clarified that, in the long term, the situation is different. "If our mission is to connect around the world, not we can do without China", said, while noting that the absence of Facebook there is "a political decision by the Government in Beijing".

With respect to Google + social network developed by the main search engine of the world, Zuckerberg spent a few, but sharp words: "Is a small version of Facebook attempt".
