Mark Elliot Zuckerberg (ɡ/; born May 14, 1984) is an American technology entrepreneur and philanthropist. He is known for co-founding and leading Facebook as its chairman and chief executive officer.[3][4]

Born in White Plains, New York, Zuckerberg attended Harvard University, where he launched Facebook from his dormitory room on February 4, 2004, with college roommates Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz, and Chris Hughes.[5] Originally launched to select college campuses, the site expanded rapidly and eventually beyond colleges, reaching one billion users by 2012. Zuckerberg took the company public in May 2012 with majority shares. His net worth is estimated to be US$61.4 billion as of October 19, 2018, declining over the last year with Facebook stock as a whole.[6]

Since 2010, Time magazine has named Zuckerberg among the 100 wealthiest and most influential people in the world as a part of its Person of the Year award.[2][7][8] In December 2016, Zuckerberg was ranked 10th on Forbes list of The World's Most Powerful People.[9]

Early life

Zuckerberg was born on May 14, 1984, in White Plains, New York.[10] His parents are Karen (née Kempner), a psychiatrist, and Edward Zuckerberg, a dentist.[11] He and his three sisters, Randi, Donna, and Arielle, were brought up in Dobbs Ferry, New York, a small Westchester County village about 21 miles north of Midtown Manhattan.[12] Zuckerberg was raised in a Reform Jewish household,[13] with ancestors hailing from Germany, Austria and Poland.[14] He had a Star Wars themed Bar Mitzvah when he turned 13[13][15] and once "questioned things" before deciding "religion is very important".[16]

At Ardsley High School, Zuckerberg excelled in classes. He transferred to the private school Phillips Exeter Academy, in New Hampshire, in his junior year, where he won prizes in science (mathematics, astronomy, and physics) and classical studies. In his youth, he also attended the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth summer camp. On his college application, Zuckerberg stated that he could read and write French, Hebrew, Latin, and ancient Greek. He was captain of the fencing team.[17][18][19]
