After the 18th century: Genius considered to be based on work and accomplishments
Geniuses are highly valued in our society
Society would not progress without genius
Is everyone who creates or invents something great considered a genius?
Wouldn't know Zuckerberg if he did not create Facebook despite his high intelligence
Facebook's impact on society and Zuckerberg's work to develop should be considered genius
Genius associated with creativity and innovation
Geniuses are able to think outside of the box
Essential to being innovative and having an impact

Innovative way to communicate with fellow students

Wouldn't exist if he had not gone out of his comfort zone
Many factors contribute to the act of genius
Impossible to say if the moment was influenced by something else

Required the accomplishments of past innovators
Still fair to say his innovation was genius
