who is Facebook Founder and CEO



Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO and founder of Facebook, did not set out to build a business.
Today the social media platform has a market capitalization of more than $500 billion and more than 2 billion monthly active users, and Zuckerberg is worth more than $70 billion, according to Forbes. But he was famously just a college student at Harvard when he launched “theFacebook” in 2004.


Why did Mark Zuckerberg make Facebook?

"Harvard organizations such as fraternities and sororities already had a precursor to Facebook for each individual organization. His idea was to take this information and put it into a central location so that all of the students of a college could communicate with one another." - Techwalla.
To this end, in January of 2004, Mark Zuckerberg began writing the code for this new site that would eventually become Facebook. The inspiration for it came from an editorial in The Havard Crimson on Facebook's controversial forerunner "Facesmash."
The site's name was taken, by all accounts, from the sheets of paper distributed to the freshman that profiled students and staff at Harvard. 
Facebook was subsequently founded in 2004 by Mark Zuckerberg, Eduardo Saverin, Dustin
