College Time and Carrear

After completing his graduating from Exeter in 2002,Mark Zuckerberg enrolled at Harvard University. By his second year at the ivy league institution, he had developed a image as the go-to software developer on campus. It was at that time that he built a program called CourseMatch, which helped students choose their classes based on the course selections of other users. He also invented the popular and (basic idea to facebook)Facemash, which compared the pictures of two students on campus and allowed users to vote on which one was more attractive. The program was later shut down by the school administration after it was deemed as inappropriate.

Based on the popularity of his previous projects,his 3 fellow students Twins Cameron, Divya Narendra and Tyler Winklevoss—sought him out to work on an idea for a social networking web site named Harvard Connection. This web site was developed and designed to use information from Harvard's student database in order to create a dating site for the Harvard elite. Zuckerberg agreed to help with the project, but soon dropped out to work on this project beacuse of his own social networking site with friends Dustin Moskovitz, Chris Hughes and Eduardo Saverin.

Controversey

Mark Zuckerberg seemed to be going further up, But however in 2006, they faced his first big hurdle.
The creators(Cameron Winklevoss,Tyler Winklevoss,Divya Narendra) of Harvard Connection claimed that Mark Zuckerberg stole their idea, and insisted the Mark have to pay for their business losses.

In his words "If you're going to go on to build a service that is influential and that a lot of people rely on, then you need to be mature, right?" he said in an interview with The New Yorker. "I think I've grown and learned a lot." Although an initial settlement of $65 million was maintained between the two parties,However the legal dispute over the matter continued to year 2011, after Narendra and the Winklevosses brothers claimed they were misled in regards to the value of their stock.

For example, Zuckerberg has been dating longtime girlfriend Priscilla Chan, a Chinese , American medical student he met at Harvard, since 2003. He also said he never had interest in joining any of the final clubs. "It's interesting what stuff they focused on getting right; like, every single shirt and fleece that I had in that movie is actually a shirt or fleece that I own," Zuckerberg told a reporter at a start up conference in 2010. "So there's all this stuff that they got wrong and a bunch of random details that they got right."
