Success Story of Mark Zuckerberg
Mark was born on 14 May 1984. Zuckerberg developed an interest in computers at an early age; when he was about 12, he used Atari BASIC to create a messaging program he named “Zucknet.
Zuckerberg and his friends created a site that allowed users to create their own profiles, upload photos, and communicate with other users. The group ran the site—first called The Facebook—out of a dorm room at Harvard. In 2004 Mark launched facebook. By the end of 2004, Facebook had 1 million users, but in 2005 he faced the most important decision of his life to dropout or stay and study at Harvard? ” it took me 5 minutes to decide that i was going to dropout – Mark Zuckerberg
But this wasn’t the only challenge he faced. Soon, tech Giant Yahoo! offered to buy facebook for $100,000,0000 but Mark Zuckerberg believed in his idea and knew that one day facebook will be worth more. So he refused to sell facebook being unaware of the circumstances, Majority of his team stopped believing in his idea because they thought selling out was a good idea. So within a year facebook’s entire management team left the company. At that time MArk could’ve easily quit but he believed in his idea and hired a new team.
In 2006, the business mogul faced his first big hurdle. The creators of Harvard Connection claimed that Zuckerberg stole their idea, and insisted the software developer needed to pay for their business losses. Zuckerberg maintained that the ideas were based on two very different types of social networks but, after lawyers searched Zuckerberg’s records, incriminating Instant Messages revealed that Zuckerberg may have intentionally stolen the intellectual property of Harvard Connection and offered Facebook users’ private information to his friends. Zuckerberg later apologized for the incriminating messages, saying he regretted them.
