Success Story - Mark Zuckerberg Networking King...Some have called him a boy genius - Time Magazine named him person
of the year in 2010, others simply know him as the guy who created
Facebook. But unlike the founder of MySpace, Tom Phillips, what
Zuckerberg created in his college dorm room at the tender age of 19, was
nothing short of a worldwide phenomenon that changed the way people and
businesses interact forever.
Born to well-off
Jewish parents, Karen and Edward Zuckerberg, in the suburb of White
Plains, New York, Mark was raised in the trendy village of Dobbs Ferry,
New York. But don't let his upper class upbringing fool you: Zuckerberg
excelled in his studies at Phillips Exeter Academy. Along with his three
sister, Randi, Donna and Arielle (Randi worked for Facebook at one
point) they won numerous prizes for science, math and other subject
throughout middle school and high school years.
Known as "Zuck"
to his friends and family, he developed a fondness for communications
and computers early on. When he was 12 years old, he developed a
messaging system with Atari BASIC, which his father, a dentist, used
regularly in his practice. He graduated high school with a focus on
literary classics and enrolled in Harvard in 2002.
The Concept of Facebook
Harvard has and is known for cultivating great talents born out of
great individuals. Poet Ralph Waldo Emerson, President Barack Obama,
businessman Bill Gates and cellist Yo Yo Ma are among the many Harvard
graduates that have gone on to become leaders and innovators. For
Zuckerberg, graduation was too far away to become a success and a leader
of the networking industry. It was during his sophomore year at Harvard
when he created Facebook; the social networking site that now connects
over 550 million people worldwide.
While the movie, The Social
Network, may have made Zuckerberg out to be a greedy, introverted kid,
the reality of that story was far from the truth. There was some
confusion about the initial concept of who created the basic idea of
Facebook while Zuckerberg was at school, but until his company became
well-known, nothing was said about his creation. As Zuckerberg stated in
many interviews from the New York Times to the Atlantic Wire, he wanted
to be mature about the situation and settled with an out-of-court
payment to appease those who may have been involved in Facebook's
inception. Ultimately, it is clear that only Mark could take Facebook to
the heights he had planned for it to be.
¬Who is the man/boy
really? He is modest, dresses in jeans and t-shirts most days and rents
out a small home near fellow Harvard dropout, Steve Jobs. He talks
quickly, gets excited about anything to do with technology and is, above
all, highly creative. He has a tight-knit family, a close group of
friends and desires fervently to further the success of his company
rather than himself.
Facebook started as a connection for
Harvard-only students. It then grew to allow all Ivy League schools.
When Facebook received a huge investment of $12.7 million dollars from a
capital firm named Accel Partners, he decided to take the company to
the next level. He moved his operation to Palo Alto, California –also
known as Silicone Valley. Soon after, he decided to not go back to his
Ivy League education, and instead devoted his time to creating a social
network that is now worth more than $50 billion dollars. Zuckerberg's
Present As the world’s youngest billionaire, his personal net worth is
approximately $6.9 billion. Fortune 500 companies like Viacom and Yahoo
both have offered deals in the billions to acquire his concept. But
Zuckerberg is sticking to his guns, working to constantly improve the
site, making it easier for people to share messages, photos, videos,
updates, play games, and more.
While most companies at this point
in its obviously wild success would be turned to a public company,
Zuckerberg has kept it private to maintain the most control on decisions
regarding the site and the service. There has been discussion of
Facebook becoming a publicly traded company, but for now, those thoughts
are a couple of years away.
had his hands full in the past turning down offers and tightening
Facebook's privacy issues, the future of Facebook is somewhat hazy. As
he states, "I am here to build something for the long term. Anything
else is a distraction." It may seem to some that Facebook has reached
its pinnacle, that being the youngest, the biggest and the best
networking site in the world means you have achieved it all. However,
"Zuck" isn't done yet. Just as Steve Jobs' continued to reinvent the
proverbial wheel with Apple computers, the iPod and the iPhone, Facebook
may very well be the start of a conglomeration of ideas that Zuckerberg
plans to share with the world. With a near-perfect score on his SATs,
that alone should tell you that the inner-workings of Zuckerberg's mind
are far from resting.
