“Some people dream of success while others wake up and work hard at it.” This quote on success comes from Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who inspires millions of youngsters from across the world with the accomplishments he has gained at such a young age.
Together with his college roommates and fellow Harvard University students Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz, and Chris Hughes, Zuckerberg had launched Facebook from Harvard’s dormitory rooms. This social networking site is now a popular tool of choice for people to connect with their friends & family as well as to meet new people around the globe.
When Facebook had officially hit the 1 billion active monthly user mark way back in October 2012, Zuckerberg had then said, “Helping a billion people connect is amazing, humbling and by far the thing I am most proud of in my life. I am committed to working every day to make Facebook better for you, and hopefully together one day we will be able to connect the rest of the world too.”
As of October 2016, the 32-year-old’s net worth is estimated to be US $55.3 billion, ranking him as the 5th richest person in the world.
Zuckerberg had also said, “My goal was never to just create a company. A lot of people misinterpret that, as if I don’t care about revenue or profit or any of those things. But what not being ‘just’ a company means to me is building something that actually makes a really big change in the world.”
So let’s take a look at how Zuckerberg started from scratch to become one of the bigwigs of the Silicon Valley.
