Young Zuckerberg modestly stated and discussed about his social networking website, 'When we first launched we were hoping for maybe 400 or 500 people … so who knows where we're going next?"
CNBC's Becky Quick asked the million dollar question, 'What is TheFacebook exactly?' And after explaining the nature of the new online directory, Facebook's founder explained the simple details of connecting via TheFacebook, "You sign on, you make a profile about yourself by answering some questions and entering some information [about yourself]."
