Mark Zuckerberg is an American computer programmer, Internet entrepreneur and philanthropist. He is best known as a co-founder of the social networking website Facebook.
Zuckerberg launched Facebook at Harvard University in 2004 with fellow students Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes. Zuckerberg introduced the website to other college campuses and high schools nationwide and moved Facebook’s headquarters to California. After the site launched, three Harvard seniors, Cameron Winklevoss, Tyler Winklevoss, and Divya Narendra, sued Zuckerberg; they settled for 1.2 million Facebook shares.
