Mark Zuckerberg founded Facebook in his college dorm room six years ago.
Some of the information can be seen only by your friends; some is available to friends of friends; some is available to anyone.
Facebook’s privacy policies are confusing to many people, and the company has changed them frequently, almost always allowing more information to be exposed in more ways.
According to his Facebook profile, Zuckerberg has three sisters (Randi, Donna, and Arielle), all of whom he’s friends with.
He’s friends with his parents, Karen and Edward Zuckerberg.
Zuckerberg may seem like an over-sharer in the age of over-sharing. Zuckerberg’s business model depends on our shifting notions of privacy, revelation, and sheer self-display.
The more that people are willing to put online, the more money his site can make from advertisers.
Happily for him, and the prospects of his eventual fortune, his business interests align perfectly with his personal philosophy.
In the bio section of his page, Zuckerberg writes simply, “I’m trying to make the world a more open place.” The world, it seems, is responding.
He graduated from Phillips Exeter Academy and attended Harvard University.
He’s a fan of the comedian Andy Samberg and counts among his favorite musicians Green Day, Jay-Z, Taylor Swift, and Shakira. Zuckerberg cites “Minimalism,” “Revolutions,” and “Eliminating Desire” as interests.
He likes “Ender’s Game,” a coming-of-age science-fiction saga by Orson Scott Card, which tells the story of Andrew (Ender) Wiggin, a gifted child who masters computer war games and later realizes that he’s involved in a real war. Zuckerberg’s Facebook friends have access to his e-mail address and his cell-phone number.
