Social networking giant Facebook’s co-founder Eduardo Saverin has said that he has no hard feelings towards Mark Zuckerberg on being forced out of the company.
“I have only good things to say about Mark, there are no hard feelings between us,” Saverin, 30, said during an interview with the Brazilian magazine Veja.
According to The Telegraph, Saverin even went so far as to call Zuckerberg a ‘visionary’.
“His focus on the company since its very first day is anything short of admirable,” the paper quoted him, as saying.
“He was a visionary, he always knew that the only way for Facebook to grow was to maintain its central idea, that of people truly presenting themselves as they are, without nicknames or pseudonyms,” he added.
Saverin, who helped Zuckerberg launch Facebook at Harvard in 2004, was edged out by Zuckerberg the next year when the social network began to take off.
