What Is Mark Zuckerberg Worth?

Mark Zuckerberg's Net Worth is $34.8 Billion

2002-2004

Zuckerburg graduated from Phillips Exeter Academy, a private school in New Hampshire; joins Harvard University in autumn on a psychology and computer science course.

in 2003, he launches Facemash – a web programme enabling Harvard students to compare images of same-gender students and rate the more attractive – and nearly gets kicked out when its immediate popularity draws the attention of the university administrators.

In February 2004, he started the “thefacebook.com”. After that, he drops out of Harvard at the end of his sophomore year; moves to Palo Alto that summer, where he rents a house with a swimming pool.

Facebook hits 200,000 users; contacts venture capitalists in Silicon Valley, and receives an initial investment of half a million dollars – some of which is used to splash out on a small office above a Chinese restaurant.

The Winklevoss twins file a lawsuit against Zuckerberg claiming he ripped off their idea for a new social network, HarvardConnection.

2005-2008

In 2005, Facebook hits 5 million users.

At 2006, Zuckerberg turns down an estimated $1 billion dollar offer for Facebook from Yahoo.

By 2007, he opens Facebook beyond universities so anyone with an email address can join; turns down a $15 billion offer from Microsoft, which would have bagged him personally $4 billion.

He allows independent developers to write programmes for Facebook; but is forced to apologise when Beacon, a controversial new addition to Facebook allowing users to view what their friends have been buying online, raises major complaints over privacy intrusion.
