Mark Zuckerberg started off as simply a kid who liked developing computer programs. And his enthusiasm for software development – and fostering personal connections – only intensified as he grew up.

With the creation of Facebook, Zuckerberg catapulted from college undergrad to billionaire. His community now boasts 500 million active users who spend 700 billion minutes a month posting random thoughts and contacting long-lost friends. It’s an online community that may never be equaled again – all thanks to Zuckerberg’s unwavering passion to connecting people.
