Mark Elliot Zuckerberg is an internet entrepreneur and philanthropist from America. He co-founded Facebook and serves as its current chairman and chief executive officer. A New York native, Zuckerberg studied psychology and computer science at Harvard University. During this period, he and his college roommates, Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz, and Chris Hughes, launched Facebook from their dormitory. Initially meant to be for select college campuses, the site witnessed exponential growth in the following few years and became the world’s biggest social media platform. As of the third quarter of 2018, Facebook had amassed over 2.27 billion monthly active users. Zuckerberg has also been involved with several other projects, including Wirehog, a file-sharing program, and Internet.org, a conglomerate of several companies attempting to bring affordable access to selected internet services in less developed countries. Over the course of his professional career, Zuckerberg has encountered a number of legal controversies. In April 2018, he appeared before the United States Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation to testify on Facebook’s use of personal data in relation to the Facebook–Cambridge Analytica data breach. Since 2010, he has been listed among the 100 wealthiest and most influential people by ‘Time’ magazine as part of its Person of the Year issue. In 2016, Forbes named him the 10th most powerful person in the world.
