May 13, 2022    7 min read

Mark Zuckerberg is an internet proprietor who created the revolutionary app, Facebook. Born on May 14th 1984, he is known as the American media magnate. He is a dynamic entrepreneur, and philanthropist who has made a name for himself in the online and offline world.

He is known for co-founding the social media website, Facebook and Instagram and its parent company Meta Platforms of which he is the Chairman, Chief Executive Officer, and controlling shareholder. The term social media became popular with the advent of the world’s largest social networking site and Mark revolutionized this entire space

Zuckerberg attended Harvard University and was very observant of the campus culture where people wanted to meet and socialize even outside of the campus. He and his roommates Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz, and Chris Hughes originally launched Facebook in 2004 to select college campuses. The site then became popular with other campuses as well.

As the brand became bigger, Zuckerberg’s business acumen sharpened and he took it upon himself to create a platform where everyone could express themselves freely. In 2017, Mark Zuckerberg penned a letter expressing his thoughts on modern learning and the power of technology in igniting people’s minds and students can specially benefit from it. In his words, each student is capable of grasping and no one is an academic disappointment. He believes that personality types are different and based on some one’s inherent personality their interest and learning capacity may differ. He believes that when technology is put to efficient use we will be able to create an immersive learning environment that will bring learning alive. He does believe that there the future lies in offering personalised services and we are capable of achieving it already.

Starting off as a college youngster, Mark has now emerged as a visionary and a philanthropist who is respected for the kind of work he has undertaken. Together with his wife he is also the founder of an NGO, the Zuckerberg - Chan initiative that is addressing the issues of reform in schools, social well being and criminal justice.
