As we told you last week, Mashable founder and CEO Pete Cashmore is readying a big overhaul of the social-networking news site.

In that post, we let Cashmore tell you about Mashable 2.0 in his own words.

In this segment,'s Bambi Francisco grills him on the site's numbers, including how many visitors, registered users and employees Mashable has.

Ultimately, the most important number is the one on the bottom line, and for Mashable, the news there is good.

"We're profitable and have been since the beginning," Cashmore says. "We run it lean." 

And after Cashmore talks about the present and immediate future, he provides a glimpse of Mashable's long-term plans, which include creating a network of different sites.
