Dreams can become reality for many of us but there is a man on this planet that made his passion an addiction for all of us and hence Mark Zuckerberg evolved as one of the exceptional talents of all time. The man is none other than the creator of a large social networking website that millions of people join every hour every day known by “Facebook”.
Mark Zuckerberg was a student in Harvard College studying computer science & psychology when he along with his college roomies and other friends established “Facebook”, the greatest invention to have happened in the form of a social networking website. Initially the Facebook service was limited to its founders but then afterwards it was expanded to other colleges and now to the point where there are over 1 billion active users using Facebook every month as per the statistics of September 2012 which has increased by 26% over last year.
As per the data gathered by consumer survey 2011, there are 7.5 million youngsters below 13 years of age and 5 million below 10 years of age that are using Facebook. There is a swarm of daily active users 584 million in number nearly and 604 million mobile active users using Facebook on an average as of 30th September, 2012. Mark Zuckerberg simply started a revolution by founding Facebook that was even termed as an intention to revolutionize the whole web by many.
While what everyone thought was a miracle is actually what Mark Zuckerberg considered cool. He and his college friends wanted to create a hub where people could stay connected with friends; family, closed groups etc. easily. Mark never planned to lead the whole internet into his direction, but that’s exactly what “the man of success” did and achieved back in 2004.
Mark Zuckerberg in his non-descript t-shirt sitting at his non-descript desk runs a gigantic worldwide empire with the world’s largest population after china and India. He owns the company where there a number of computer engineers and employees working tirelessly including him, where they are proud enough to call themselves as hackers.
The walls of the organization is a big home to the word “Hack” where there are numerous hackers working and writing program codes into the night incorporating a lot of competition among themselves. Mark Zuckerberg however mentions it himself that he feels the word “hacker” is a huge compliment for an engineer, it just means to build something very quickly.
Let’s say in one night you just sit down and you start churning out a lot of codes and you have a product ready for you. Well the man of success may just say anything interesting and that could become a tip for many budding programmers of today. All the Facebook engineers including Mark himself stay up all night and they build things, well success surely comes after a lot of hard work!

Amidst the great boom that Mark created by Facebook, other things also took place. Whether they were the insider trading allegations on mark or the alleged privacy invasion accusations, which Facebook faced. But as they say, every cloud has a silver lining. Facebook has been so popular ever since that it just brushed aside everything and remained on top. Facebook and Google were also in a collision as stated by many sources over the issue how people find things in both the two that is “Search”.
Mark Zuckerberg made Facebook a knack for all of us, for people from all walks of life. Before Facebook, we could access only publicly available information but after its invention people get personal opinions about everything on web which has been the passion driven success formula for Mark Zuckerberg ever since.
No matter what the controversies say but the truth is that Mark Zuckerberg has done something which makes him success driven, truly the “man of success”.
