Mark Eliot Zuckerberg was born in a Jewish family in New York on May 14, 1984. Zuckerberg is the founder and CEO of the social networking site Facebook, and is dubbed the "Second Gates" by people.

Some time later, he developed another program called Facemash, which allows students to choose the best looking person from a bunch of photos. According to Zuckerberg's roommate Arie Hasit, he did this only for fun. Hasit explained: "He has several books called Face Books, which contain the names and photos of students. At first, he created a website and put a few photos, two photos of boys and two photos of girls, and the viewers You can choose which one is the hottest and rank it according to the voting results.” This competition lasted for a weekend, but on Monday morning, it was shut down by the school because the Harvard server was bombed, so students were not allowed to enter the website.

This donation set a record for charitable donations by young Americans.
