    "I know that's one of the ways in which — in which we saw eye to eye on kind of what we were trying to do in the world," Zuckerberg said.

    The founder of the world's most popular social network appeared on the "Charlie Rose" show Monday with Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg.

    The 27-year-old CEO said Jobs gave him advice on developing a management team that was "focused on building as high quality and good things as you are."
