If you work hard, you will definitely get the results whether it is today or tomorrow. In today’s article I will tell you the success story of a man who surprised the whole world at the age of 19 with his hard work. And today that man is the fifth richest man in the world with a net worth of $122 billion. And that man is Mark Zuckerberg, the owner of the world’s largest social media platform, Facebook.
The story begins in a town in New York where Mark was born on 14 May 1984. Mark’s father’s name was Edward. who was a dentist. And his mother is a psychiatrist. Mark started learning programming at a young age. And at just 12 years old, when other boys were playing games, Mark started programming and created a messaging program called Jake Net.
Which his father started using in his clinic. Mark’s father realizes that his son will do great things. He then set up a personal tutor for Mark. Who was a software developer. From whom Mark started learning programming. When Mark was in high school, he built a music player for a company called Intelligent Media Group that created a custom playlist of mp3 songs that the user wanted to listen to.
Mark surprises everyone with his programming before he finishes school. After completing school in 2002, Mark hacked the college database in 2003, just a year after admission to Harvard University. Simply because Mark was building a website called ‘Facemash’. And for that, students’ photos and their data were required.
Then Mark created a website called ‘Facemash’ and used all the photos that he got from the college’s database on the website. And there was an option of voting on this website to see who is hotter, the server crashes due to the high traffic on this website. Then Mark was accused of hacking the database and Mark admitted it and apologized.
After seeing the success of Facemash, India’s Divya Naren and two twin brothers came to Mark with the idea of creating another social media website and Marge started working on this idea and finally in January 2004 the domain name facebook.com was registered. After that Mark started working day and night for Facebook for which Mark quit his college and focused all on Facebook.
And on February 4, 2004, Mark launched Facebook. Seeing the success of Facebook, many big companies offered to buy Facebook and even Yahoo offered a billion dollars to buy Facebook. But Mark didn’t sell to Facebook and within five years in 2010 Facebook hit 500 million users. And in 2012, one billion users completed. Then Facebook bought WhatsApp and Instagram.
All this is possible thanks to Mark’s hard work. Today Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram are the world’s top social media platforms and today Mark Zuckerberg is the fifth richest man in the world with $122 billion. Finally you have to remember one thing if you work more than your income today then one day your income will be many times more than your work.
