Mark Zuckerburg is an American computer programmer and entrepreneur. Is is also the chairman, CEO, and co-founder of the popular social-networking site, Facebook.
From a young age, Zuckerberg has always taken an interest in computers. He first began using computers and writing software in middle school. He was later tutored privately by software developer, David Newman, and was deemed as many as a "programming prodigy." Zuckerberg then went on to attend Harvard University, where he created the site Facemash, which garnered a lot of negative attention.
However, although his previous works may not have been positive, Zuckerberg then launched Facebook from his Harvard dorm room on February 4th, 2004. At first, it started off exclusively as a "Harvard thing," but quickly spread to other schools, and soon garnered the attention of major corporations looking to buy the company. However, Zuckerberg and his associates were more focused on creating a system that provided an open flow of information between people.
