Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg visited MIT on Monday as part of an east coast recruiting tour. The entrepreneur also visited Harvard University, his alma mater.

While at MIT he held closed-door meetings with students and faculty.

In a very brief visit with the press Zuckerberg clarified a statement he made where he said had he the chance to start Facebook again he may have kept it in Boston.
