Instead of playing games as a child, Zuckerberg made them from drawings his artist friends would do. The first program that he ever designed was called Synapse, which would figure out a user's music listening habits. CourseMatch was another thing he designed, was to help determine what classes a student should take, and FaceMash, this was to figure out between two photographs, who was hotter. FaceMash was considered offensive and was taken down by the school's administration soon after it went up.
Zuckerberg is the Chairman and CEO of Facebook; he makes one dollar per year in his role with Facebook. Zuckerberg is a college dropout of Harvard University; he dropped out of Harvard to work on Facebook with four other roommates. They started working on Facebook and would later launch it from their dorm rooms. After some success with Facebook, he moved the company to California to make it grow bigger.
Facebook went online February 4, 2004; at first it was only available to three Ivy League schools (Yale, Stanford, and Columbia), but later would expand to a broader audience, starting first with other colleges, and then moving on to workplaces in 2006. It also started out as "thefacebook.com", until 2009 when the "the" was removed. This name was in reference to "The Photo Address Book" which was a student directory that was referred to "The Facebook". This is also where he got the idea for FaceSmash. Users of Facebook, of which they are about a billion of them, spend about 700 billion minutes a month using the site. It is the second most used site online behind Google.
He makes most of his money off his stock in Facebook. At one point, he had 503 million shares in the company. He bought a company working in virtual reality called Oculus; this purchase pushed his net worth up $6.3 billion and earned him a spot in the top 10 section of The Forbes 400, the first time that that's happened for him.
He married Priscilla Chan, his girlfriend of nine years on May 19, 2012 in a ceremony that also celebrated her graduation from the University of California's medical school in their backyard and they are expecting a child together. It was at Harvard that these two met in 2003.
In 2010 he was awarded Time Persons of the Year. In 2011, he was named, by The Jeruslam Post, the number one "Most Influential Jew in the World". Mark Zuckerberg has a net worth of $45.1 billion. He is a internet entrepreneur, computer programmer, and is best known for co-founding Facebook.
