He is a co-founder of Facebook, and currently operates as its chairman and chief executive officer. [4] [5] His net worth is estimated to be US $73.1 billion as of January 2018, making him the fifth richest person in the world. [6]

Zuckerberg launched Facebook from his Harvard University dormitory room on February 4, 2004 with college roommates and fellow Harvard students Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz, and Chris Hughes.
