About Quotes Trivia
Born on: 14th May 84 Born in: United States Marital status: Married Occupation: Facebook

Mark Zuckerberg is the founder and current CEO of the social networking company Facebook. He founded the social media giant after dropping out of Harvard when he was 19. His real time net worth according to Forbes was $69.1 billion as of the 25th of July 2017 making him one of the richest men in the world.

Zuckerberg was born in 1984 into a well-educated and well off family. He developed an interest in computers at an early age. He was always considered a bit of a prodigy, by the age of 12 he had created a programme called ‘Zucknet’ which his father used in his dental practice. During his time at Harvard University he gained notoriety as the creator of a programme called FaceMash. FaceMash compared the pictures of any two users on the campus and allowed users to vote on which one was more attractive. The programme became wildly popular before being shut down by school administration having been deemed inappropriate.

Zuckerberg’s wealth comes from Facebook which he took public in May 2012 when its IPO earned $16 billion making it the biggest internet IPO in history. This lead to the company making it onto the Fortune 500 list in May 2013, making him, at the age of 28, the youngest CEO on the list. All of this combined with the fact that over 1.2 billion people use Facebook each day makes Mark Zuckerberg one of the most powerful men on the planet. There is speculation afoot that Mark Zuckerberg is set to become more powerful as many commenters believe that his recent steps into the political arena as well as a pledge to visit all 50 states in the U.S.A are a sign that Zuckerberg is thinking about running for President in the next elections. It might just be gossip but the fact that the gossip is there tells us everything we need to know about the influence of this man.

It is not just all about power for Zuckerberg though he does seems to be genuinely interested in doing good as well and has become one of the world’s most generous philanthropists. In September 2016 Zuckerberg and his wife announced that within the next decade they would be investing at least $3 billion into scientific research to help ‘cure, prevent and manage all diseases in our children’s lifetime’. This is not a new thing for Zuckerberg however as he has always been involved in charitable acts. Back in 2010 he donated $100 million to save the failing Newark public school system.

We can never be sure of the future but it seems certain that Zuckerberg’s fortune and influence seem set to continue growing for years to come.

Hawaii Vacation

Vacation in Hawaii

Billionaire chairman and CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg is very simple and humble when it comes to holidays and vacations. He spent the Christmas of 2012 enjoying the pleasures of sea surfing along with his wife, Priscilla Chan at the Hawaiian Islands. Both of them are excellent surfers and Hawaii was the perfect vacation spot for the winter. They spent the remaining time tanning, tweeting and using the new Facebook 'Poke' which sends fleeting messages.

Location: Hawaii is located as the northernmost island group of Polynesia in central Pacific Ocean.

Accommodation: There is no dearth of accommodation on the Hawaiian islands. Cheaper options are possible by choosing hotels on the islands of Maui, O'ahu or Moloka'i.

Main Attractions: The sun-kissed beaches, winding hiking trails, photogenic landscapes and lush greenery surrounding the blue coves of water that one will find in plenty at Hawaii are a strong attractant for any visitor.

The best thing to do for the first timer would be to go on an excursion to the different islands, hopping and dipping into the joys that they offer. Surfing, swimming, diving, sunbathing and relaxing on the beach are the most popular options.

You could also go dolphin/whale watching as you keep an eye around for the host of celebrities that descend to this tourist hotspot. Those with a love for history should take time to visit the Pearl Harbor and the nearby museum there. Volcanoes abound on these islands and volcano-watching is a good pastime. There are options for world-class golf too.
