Facebook Launched

While at Harvard University


February 4, 2004, at the age of 19
- took the concept of the annual student
directory of headshots at Exeter and did
the same for Harvard, but then sent them
via the Internet to fellow Ivy League
schools; within 3 months, 45 schools and
over 100,000 people were using Facebook
- roommate Dustin Moskovitz assisted in
launching Facebook

Where did Facebook


get its name???
Referring to the annual student directory at
Exeter "The front cover says "The Photo Address
Book," but we all called it "The Facebook" all
the time because "The Photo Address Book"
was such a mouthful.
Thus, Facebook became a trademark word.

Why Facebook??
Zuckerberg,

himself was always in a social circle

Wanted

to create a site for


social networking

Wanted

the site to be one that


people of all ages would find useful
in their lives and would be able to
connect with others.

Believed

that people being able to share the information


they wanted and having access to the information they
wanted is just a better world
