How India Influenced Facebook Founder Mark Zuckerberg - India Real Time - WSJ

Small world
"Before Facebook entered the stratosphere of Internet success and while he was considering whether or not to sell the social-media company, Mr. Zuckerberg said that Apple Inc. founder Steve Jobs recommended he visit a temple in India “in order to reconnect with what I believed was the mission of the company.”  
Mr. Zuckerberg did not say which temple but said that Mr. Jobs had been there when he was thinking about his vision of the future for Apple.

“And so I went and I traveled for almost a month,” said Mr. Zuckerberg. “Seeing the people, seeing how people connected, having the opportunity to feel how much better the world could be if everyone had a stronger ability to connect reinforced for me the importance of what we were doing and that is something that I have always remembered over the last 10 years as we have built Facebook.”"
