computer programmer writes programs for the operation of computers, especially
as an occupation. This is important because the world is moving more and more
towards a more technologically based world. Loving computer programming Mark
Zuckerberg invented a revolutionary social media platform.
As a young child Mark Zuckerberg
exhibited an extraordinary flair for astronomy, mathematics, physics, English
classical literature, and foreign languages. His father taught him Atari BASIC.
Some of Marks first programs created were ZuckNet which was an early messaging
system which became the communication system at his father’s dentist office.
And also a music program that learns your listening habits. At Harvard Mark
Zuckerberg got a reputation as a go-to software developer and made CourseMatch
which helped students choose courses.
Mark Zuckerberg started
TheFacebook.com in his dormitory at Harvard. Then he dropped out of Harvard and
moved to Palo Alto, California to dedicate more time to Facebook. And in 2004
Facebook had reached 200k users and the Winklevoss Twins sued Facebook for
supposedly stealing their idea. In 2005 Facebook hit 5 million users and just a
year later in 2006 Mark Zuckerberg had turned down a $1 billion offer from
Yahoo. And in 2007 Facebook was opened
to where any one could join and a $15 billion offer from Microsoft was turned
down. But also in that same year a 3rd party support for add-ons was
added but unfortunately an add-on was made to track peoples shopping habits
called Beacon and so Mark Zuckerberg released a public apology. In 2008 Mark
Zuckerberg and the Winklevoss Twins reach a settlement of $65 million. In 2009

Melissa Chen and on July 31, 2015 had a baby girl named Maxima Chan Zuckerberg
and as a religion believes in Buddhism and Christianity and has hobbies such as
hunting and playing with pets.
Having developed a groundbreaking
social media, it made Mark Zuckerberg’s adoration for computer programming
stand out. Although having designed many other programs Mark Zuckerberg will
forever be remembered for Facebook. Having made many excellent programs Mr.
Zuckerberg has had to take risks to do so which supports his statement, “The
biggest risk is not taking any risk…”. Having made software such as CourseMatch,
Facebook, music programs, and Jarvis Mr. Zuckerberg proves that the biggest
risk truly is to not take any risks. Having had an interest since a young age
Mr. Zuckerberg’s interest only grew as he got older. Mark Zuckerberg is a great
example of if a person loves something and it is put to practice then it can be
made into a career.
