Mark Zuckerberg is an internet entrepreneur and the founder and CEO of Facebook.

(born May 14, 1984) is an American media magnate, internet entrepreneur, and philanthropist.

He also is a co-founder of the solar sail spacecraft development project Breakthrough Starshot and serves as one of its board members.

Born in White Plains, New York, Zuckerberg attended Harvard University, where he launched the Facebook social networking service from his dormitory room on February 4, 2004, with college roommates Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz, and Chris Hughes. 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. In 2007, at age 23, he became the world's youngest self-made billionaire. As of November 2020, Zuckerberg's net worth is $101.2 billion, making him the 4th-richest person in the world. He is the only person under 40 years old in Forbes' list of the 20 richest people.

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