(Newser) – Mark Zuckerberg talked about privacy, The Social Network, and Facebook's brand new look in a wide-ranging 60 Minutes interview. The profile-page revamp, which is being rolled out in the coming weeks, offers new ways for users to organize and tag their friends, including new fields for sports played and teams followed, CNET reports. "When you can use products with your friends and your family and the people you care about, they tend to be more engaging," Zuckerberg said.

Interviewer Leslie Stahl—who noted that Zuckerberg seemed a lot more relaxed than when she last interviewed him in 2008—fired a barrage of questions related to Facebook's founding and future. "Is the goal for you to conquer the Internet, to own the whole Internet?" she asked. Zuckerberg, after attempting to sidestep the question, said the true goal of the social networking giant is to build products to help the rest of the Internet improve their own products.
