Name: fatimasadoon Date: 7. March. 2013 Mark Zuckerberg , said: “By giving people the power to share, we’re making the world more transparents”. As Nowadays, with the help of the Facebook it became easier than before. So users can create profile with photos, added people as friends and send them massages, list of personal interests, contact information and other information, and update their personal profiles to notify friends about themselves. Additionally, users can join Facebook by workplace, school or college.
Communicating with friends and other users can be done through private or public messages or a chat feature. Users can also create and join interest groups and like pages which called “Fan Pages”. Mark Zuckerberg is an American computer programmer and Internet entrepreneur. He is best known as one of five co-founders of the social networking site Facebook. In high school years, Mark Zuckerberg was already excel in software programming. And he created a communication system called “ZuckNet” to be used by his father, Edward Zuckerberg in his home and office.
He also made Synapse Media Player which attracts big companies like Microsoft and AOL to buy from him but he didn’t sell it to them but upload it as freeware. In 2003, Mark Zuckerberg created facemash which is sort of a hot or not game to him. Its growth was expanding out of hand and was closed in just a few days. Yet, it is a good inspiration to him that social network might be one bid thing. In 2004, he launched theFacebook from his bedroom in Harvard and was gaining popularity in rapid pace.
In 2005, his operation expanded and “the” is dropped from the name and it is called Facebook instead- a much simpler name to remember. In 2006, Facebook is finally open to everyone around the world. Before this, Facebook initially invited only Harvard and certain colleges to join. By 2007, Facebook had made him a billionaire at the age of 23. By 2010, Facebook had an estimated 500 million users worldwide and reached 1 billion in 2012. In conclusion, Mark Zuckerberg is not really a person who enjoys the luxury in his life, but is motivated by his work.
He spent most of his time in the office. He lives in ordinary apartment and even sleeps on a mattress on the floor. So it might seem that he does not require extra cash to spend on and being a billionaire who has made significant change to the world that alone already sounds awesome to me and all his supporters. “It’s not because of the amount of money. For me and my colleagues, the most important thing is that we create an open information flow for people. Having media corporations owned by conglomerates is just not an attractive idea to me”_ Mark Zuckerberg.
