When Zuckerberg was at Harvard, students wanted the university to develop an internal website that would include photos of people and their contact details.

Meeting New People-Isn’t It Time You Did?

When was the last time you met someone new? Someone who inspired, excited and could help you. When was the last time someone met you, and would have gone back home and told others about you? Take two people. One is a marketing executive who has worked faithfully and competently in the same advertising agency for the last 15 years. He works hard, does a good job and knows his stuff.
