Transcript of How Mark Zuckerberg Changed The World.
How Mark Zuckerberg Changed The World:By Dylan McRae Mark Zuckerberg was born in White Plains, New York to his mother Karen, a psychiatrist, and Edward, a dentist, on May 14, 1984. Zuckerberg knew many non- English languages he could read and write, such as: French, Hebrew, Latin, and Ancient Greek. At Ardsley Highschool, During Mark’s later high school years, he built a music player called Synapse media player. It used artificial intelligence to learn the users listening habits. Microsoft and AOL tried to purchase Synapse and recruit Zuckerberg, but he chose instead to enroll in Harvard College in September 2002. Mark wrote Facemash, the predecessor to Facebook on October 28, 2003. Similar to “Hot Or Not”, this was a site where you rated someone by their “Hotness”. To do this, he had to hack into the Harvard Net, break into the school firewall, access the directory, and “steal” approximately 10,000 different photos from many different students. Mark Zuckerberg invented Facebook from his Harvard dormitory on February 4, 2004. Facebook is a social networking site that lets you communicate with your friends and family around the globe. Today, Facebook is worth around $50 Billion. Six days after the site was launched, three Harvard seniors, Cameron, and Tyler Winklevoss, and their friend Divya Narenda, accused Zuckerberg of intentionally misleading them into believing he would help them build a social network called “Harvard Connections”, while instead he was using their ideas for a new product named Facebook. Six days after the site was launched, three Harvard seniors, Cameron, and Tyler Winklevoss, and their friend Divya Narenda, accused Zuckerberg of intentionally misleading them into believing he would help them build a social network called “Harvard Connections”, while instead he was using their ideas for a new product named Facebook. In September 2006, Facebook opened to everyone age 13 and older. Now, this was a tough move by Zuckerberg, because many people were happy by this, while many people 18 and over were infuriated because they did not want the kids to “take over” Facebook. Unfortunately for them, this definitely happened. Today, 64.8% of Facebook users are below the age of 18. There are endless possibilities on Facebook to keep you entertained for many years to come. Has Facebook changed the world? There’s only a small amount of people who haven’t heard of Facebook. LA FIN. For me, I think Facebook changed the world by inventing a whole new way for people to interact with each other; by groups, chat, the wall, and even personal messaging. You can post a photo album from your latest trip for someone to comment on, “Like” someone’s comment that you think is hilarious, or even send someone a “poke”. You can talk to your cousin who’s on the other side of the world, or chat with a soldier overseas. Full transcript
