Mark Zuckerberg was born in 1984 in White Plains, New York.He is the son of Karen, a psychiatrist, and Edward Zuckerberg, a dentist. He began classes at Harvard, He had already achieved a reputation as a programming prodigy. In his sophomore year, he wrote a program called CourseMatch, which allowed users to make class selection decisions based on the choices of other students and also to help them form study groups.

A short time later, he created a different program he initially called Facemash that let students select the best looking person from a choice of photos. According to his roommate at the time, Arie Hasit, he built the site for fun. He had books called Face Books, which included the names and pictures of everyone who lived in the student dorms. At first, He built a site and placed two pictures, or pictures of two males and two females. Visitors to the site had to choose who was hotter and according to the votes there would be a ranking. The site went up over a weekend, but by Monday morning the college shut it down because its popularity had overwhelmed one of Harvard’s network switches and prevented students from accessing the Internet. But students demanded for that network, so He got that chance to build a site which would be better.

Then he was chosen as number 16 in New Statesman’s annual survey of the world’s 50 most influential figures.
