Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg made a rare public appearance at Facebook's f8 '08 conference in San Francisco Wednesday.

Hundreds of entrepreneurs who create features and tools for the popular social networking site were eager to hear Zuckerberg's vision for the Web site.

He wants the company to make it possible for people to connect with each other and share information around the world.

"For the next few years, our primary focus, and while we are experimenting with a number of those, is really just to focus on the value that we are providing in terms of helping people share information and growing the user base," Zuckerberg said.

Facebook unveiled a new design for its site at the conference Tuesday. It will be rolled out to Facebook's 90 million users in the coming weeks in an attempt to capture market share from its chief competitor MySpace.
