Mark Elliot Zuckerberg (born May 14, 1984) is an American computer programmer an
d Internet entrepreneur. He is best known as one of five co-founders of the soci
al networking website Facebook. Zuckerberg is the chairman and chief executive o
f Facebook, Inc.[4][5] His personal wealth, as of July 2015, is estimated to be
$38.6 billion.[3] Zuckerberg receives a one-dollar salary as CEO of Facebook.[2]
Together with his college roommates and fellow Harvard University students Eduar
do Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz, and Chris Hughes, he launched Fac
ebook from Harvard University's dormitory rooms.[6] The group then introduced Fa
cebook onto other campuses nationwide and moved to Palo Alto, California shortly
afterwards. In 2007, at the age of 23, Zuckerberg became a billionaire as a res
ult of Facebook's success. The number of Facebook users worldwide reached a tota
l of one billion in 2012. Zuckerberg was involved in various legal disputes that
were initiated by others in the group, who claimed a share of the company based
upon their involvement during the development phase of Facebook.
Since 2010, Time magazine has named Zuckerberg among the 100 wealthiest and most
influential people in the world as a part of its Person of the Year distinction
.[7][8][9] In 2011, Zuckerberg ranked first on the list of the "Most Influential
Jews in the World" by The Jerusalem Post.[10] Zuckerberg was played by actor Je
sse Eisenberg in the 2010 film The Social Network, in which the rise of Facebook
is portrayed.[11]

Early life
Zuckerberg was born in 1984 in White Plains, New York.[12] He is the son of dent
ist Edward Zuckerberg and psychiatrist Karen Kempner.[13] He and his three siste
rs, Randi, Donna, and Arielle,[14] were brought up in Dobbs Ferry, New York, a s
mall Westchester County village about 10 miles (16 km) north of New York City.[1
4] Zuckerberg was raised Jewish and had his bar mitzvah when he turned 13.[15] A
fterward, he became an atheist.[16][17][18]
At Ardsley High School, Zuckerberg excelled in classics. He transferred to Phill
ips Exeter Academy in New Hampshire in his junior year, where he won prizes in s
cience (math, astronomy and physics) and classical studies. On his college appli
cation, Zuckerberg claimed that he could read and write French, Hebrew, Latin, a
nd ancient Greek. He was captain of the fencing team.[17][19][20][21] In college
, he was known for reciting lines from epic poems such as The Iliad.[19]
Software developer
Early years
Zuckerberg began using computers and writing software in middle school. His fath
er taught him Atari BASIC Programming in the 1990s, and later hired software dev
eloper David Newman to tutor him privately. Newman calls him a "prodigy", adding
that it was "tough to stay ahead of him". Zuckerberg took a graduate course in
the subject at Mercy College near his home while still in high school. He enjoye
d developing computer programs, especially communication tools and games. In one
such program, since his father's dental practice was operated from their home,
he built a software program he called "ZuckNet" that allowed all the computers b
etween the house and dental office to communicate with each other. It is conside
red a "primitive" version of AOL's Instant Messenger, which came out the followi
ng year.
According to writer Jose Antonio Vargas, "some kids played computer games. Mark
created them." Zuckerberg himself recalls this period: "I had a bunch of friends
who were artists. They'd come over, draw stuff, and I'd build a game out of it.
" However, notes Vargas, Zuckerberg was not a typical "geek-klutz", as he later
became captain of his prep school fencing team and earned a classics diploma. Na
pster co-founder Sean Parker, a close friend, notes that Zuckerberg was "really
into Greek odysseys and all that stuff", recalling how he once quoted lines from
the Roman epic poem Aeneid, by Virgil, during a Facebook product conference.[14
During Zuckerberg's high school years, under the company name Intelligent Media
Group, he built a music player called the Synapse Media Player that used machine
learning to learn the user's listening habits, which was posted to Slashdot[22]
and received a rating of 3 out of 5 from PC Magazine.[23]
College years
By the time he began classes at Harvard, Zuckerberg had already achieved a "repu
tation as a programming prodigy", notes Vargas. He studied psychology and comput
er science as well as belonging to Alpha Epsilon Pi, a Jewish fraternity, and Ki
rkland House.[7][14][24] In his sophomore year, he wrote a program he called Cou
rseMatch, which allowed users to make class selection decisions based on the cho
ices of other students and also to help them form study groups. A short time lat

er, he created a different program he initially called Facemash that let student
s select the best looking person from a choice of photos. According to Zuckerber
g's roommate at the time, Arie Hasit, "he built the site for fun". Hasit explain
We had books called Face Books, which included the names and pictures of eve
ryone who lived in the student dorms. At first, he built a site and placed two p
ictures, or pictures of two males and two females. Visitors to the site had to c
hoose who was "hotter" and according to the votes there would be a ranking.[25]
The site went up over a weekend; but by Monday morning, the college shut it down
because its popularity had overwhelmed one of Harvard's network switches and pr
evented students from accessing the Internet. In addition, many students complai
ned that their photos were being used without permission. Zuckerberg apologized
publicly, and the student paper ran articles stating that his site was "complete
ly improper."[25]
The following semester, in January 2004, Zuckerberg began writing code for a new
website.[26] On February 4, 2004, Zuckerberg launched "Thefacebook", originally
located at[27]
Six days after the site launched, three Harvard seniors, Cameron Winklevoss, Tyl
er Winklevoss, and Divya Narendra, accused Zuckerberg of intentionally misleadin
g them into believing he would help them build a social network called HarvardCo, while he was instead using their ideas to build a competing produc
t.[28] The three complained to the Harvard Crimson and the newspaper began an in
vestigation in response.
Following the official launch of the Facebook social media platform, the three f
iled a lawsuit against Zuckerberg that resulted in a settlement.[29] The agreed
settlement was for 1.2 million Facebook shares that were worth US$300 million at
Facebook's IPO.[30]
Zuckerberg dropped out of Harvard in his sophomore year to complete his project.
[31] In January 2014, Zuckerberg recalled:
I remember really vividly, you know, having pizza with my friends a day or
wo after I opened up the first version of Facebook at the time I thought, "You
w, someone needs to build a service like this for the world." But I just never
hought that we'd be the ones to help do it. And I think a lot of what it comes
own to is we just cared more.[32]

Zuckerberg launched Facebook from his Harvard dormitory room on February 4, 2004
.[33][34] An earlier inspiration for Facebook may have come from Phillips Exeter
Academy, the prep school from which Zuckerberg graduated in 2002. It published
its own student directory, "The Photo Address Book", which students referred to
as "The Facebook". Such photo directories were an important part of the student
social experience at many private schools. With them, students were able to list
attributes such as their class years, their friends, and their telephone number
Once at college, Zuckerberg's Facebook started off as just a "Harvard thing" unt

il Zuckerberg decided to spread it to other schools, enlisting the help of roomm

ate Dustin Moskovitz. They began with Columbia, New York University, Stanford, D
artmouth, Cornell, Penn, Brown, and Yale.[35] Samyr Laine, a triple jumper repre
senting Haiti at the 2012 Summer Olympics, shared a room with Zuckerberg during
Facebook's founding. "Mark was clearly on to great things," said Laine, who was
Facebook's fourteenth user.[36]
After Zuckerberg moved to Palo Alto, California with Moskovitz and some friends,
they leased a small house that served as an office. Over the summer, Zuckerberg
met Peter Thiel who invested in the company. They got their first office in mid
-2004. According to Zuckerberg, the group planned to return to Harvard but event
ually decided to remain in California.[37][38] They had already turned down offe
rs by major corporations to buy the company. In an interview in 2007, Zuckerberg
explained his reasoning: "It's not because of the amount of money. For me and m
y colleagues, the most important thing is that we create an open information flo
w for people. Having media corporations owned by conglomerates is just not an at
tractive idea to me."[34]
He restated these goals to Wired magazine in 2010: "The thing I really care abou
t is the mission, making the world open."[39] Earlier, in April 2009, Zuckerberg
sought the advice of former Netscape CFO Peter Currie about financing strategie
s for Facebook.[40] On July 21, 2010, Zuckerberg reported that the company reach
ed the 500 million-user mark.[41] When asked whether Facebook could earn more in
come from advertising as a result of its phenomenal growth, he explained:
I guess we could..... If you look at how much of our page is taken up with a
ds compared to the average search query. The average for us is a little less tha
n 10 percent of the pages and the average for search is about 20 percent taken u
p with ads..... That's the simplest thing we could do. But we aren't like that.
We make enough money. Right, I mean, we are keeping things running; we are growi
ng at the rate we want to.[39]
In 2010, Steven Levy, who wrote the 1984 book Hackers: Heroes of the Computer Re
volution, wrote that Zuckerberg "clearly thinks of himself as a hacker". Zuckerb
erg said that "it's OK to break things" "to make them better".[42][43] Facebook
instituted "hackathons" held every six to eight weeks where participants would h
ave one night to conceive of and complete a project.[42] The company provided mu
sic, food, and beer at the hackathons, and many Facebook staff members, includin
g Zuckerberg, regularly attended.[43] "The idea is that you can build something
really good in a night", Zuckerberg told Levy. "And that's part of the personali
ty of Facebook now..... It's definitely very core to my personality."[42]
Vanity Fair magazine named Zuckerberg number 1 on its 2010 list of the Top 100 "
most influential people of the Information Age".[44] Zuckerberg ranked number 23
on the Vanity Fair 100 list in 2009.[45] In 2010, Zuckerberg was chosen as numb
er 16 in New Statesman's annual survey of the world's 50 most influential figure
In a 2011 interview with PBS after the death of Steve Jobs, Zuckerberg said that
Jobs had advised him on how to create a management team at Facebook that was "f
ocused on building as high quality and good things as you are".[47]
On October 1, 2012, Zuckerberg visited Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev in
Moscow to stimulate social media innovation in Russia and to boost Facebook's p
osition in the Russian market.[48] Russia's communications minister tweeted that
Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev urged the social media giant's founder to abando
n plans to lure away Russian programmers and instead consider opening a research
center in Moscow. In 2012, Facebook had roughly 9 million users in Russia, whil
e domestic clone VK had around 34 million.[49] Rebecca Van Dyck, Facebook's head
of consumer marketing, claimed that 85 million American Facebook users were exp

osed to the first day of the Home promotional campaign on April 6, 2013.[50]
On August 19, 2013, the Washington Post reported that Zuckerberg's Facebook prof
ile was hacked by an unemployed web developer.[51]
At the 2013 TechCrunch Disrupt conference, held in September, Zuckerberg stated
that he is working towards registering the 5 billion humans who were not connect
ed to the Internet as of the conference on Facebook. Zuckerberg then explained t
hat this is intertwined with the aim of the project, whereby Facebo
ok, with the support of other technology companies, seeks to increase the number
of people connected to the internet.[52][53]
Zuckerberg was the keynote speaker at the 2014 Mobile World Congress (MWC), held
in Barcelona, Spain, in March 2014, which was attended by 75,000 delegates. Var
ious media sources highlighted the connection between Facebook's focus on mobile
technology and Zuckerberg's speech, claiming that mobile represents the future
of the company.[54] Zuckerberg's speech expands upon the goal that he raised at
the TechCrunch conference in September 2013, whereby he is working towards expan
ding Internet coverage into developing countries.[55]
Alongside other American technology figures like Jeff Bezos and Tim Cook, Zucker
berg hosted visiting Chinese politician Lu Wei, known as the "Internet czar" for
his influence in the enforcement of China's online policy, at Facebook's headqu
arters on December 8, 2014. The meeting occurred after Zuckerberg participated i
n a Q&A session at Tsinghua University in Beijing, China, on October 23, 2014, w
here he attempted to converse in Mandarin Chinese although Facebook is banned in C
hina, Zuckerberg is highly regarded among the people and was at the university t
o help fuel the nation's burgeoning entrepreneur sector.[56]
Zuckerberg fielded questions during a live Q&A session at the company's headquar
ters in Menlo Park on December 11, 2014. The founder and CEO explained that he d
oes not believe Facebook is a waste of time because it facilitates social engage
ment, and participating in a public session was so that he could "learn how to b
etter serve the community".[57][58]
Main article: Wirehog
A month after Facebook launched in February 2004, i2hub, another campus-only ser
vice, created by Wayne Chang, was launched. i2hub focused on peer-to-peer file s
haring. At the time, both i2hub and Facebook were gaining the attention of the p
ress and growing rapidly in users and publicity. In August 2004, Zuckerberg, And
rew McCollum, Adam D'Angelo, and Sean Parker launched a competing peer-to-peer f
ile sharing service called Wirehog, a precursor to Facebook Platform application

On May 24, 2007, Zuckerberg announced Facebook Platform, a development platform
for programmers to create social applications within Facebook. Within weeks, man
y applications had been built and some already had millions of users. It grew to
more than 800,000 developers around the world building applications for Faceboo
k Platform.[citation needed]
On November 6, 2007, Zuckerberg announced Beacon, a social advertising system th
at enabled people to share information with their Facebook friends based on thei
r browsing activities on other sites. For example, eBay sellers could let friend
s know automatically what they have for sale via the Facebook news feed as they

listed items for sale. The program came under scrutiny because of privacy concer
ns from groups and individual users. Zuckerberg and Facebook failed to respond t
o the concerns quickly, and on December 5, 2007, Zuckerberg wrote a blog post on
Facebook,[61] taking responsibility for the concerns about Beacon and offering
an easier way for users to opt out of the service.
In 2007, Zuckerberg was named by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
Technology Review's TR35 as one of the top 35 innovators in the world under the
age of 35.[62] On July 23, 2008, Zuckerberg announced Facebook Connect, a versi
on of Facebook Platform for users.
In a public Facebook post, Zuckerberg launched the project in late
August 2013. Zuckerberg explained that the primary aim of the initiative is to p
rovide Internet access to the 5 billion people who are not connected as of the l
aunch date. Using a three-tier strategy, will also create new jobs
and open up new markets, according to Zuckerberg. He stated in his post:
The world economy is going through a massive transition right now. The knowl
edge economy is the future. By bringing everyone online, we'll not only improve
billions of lives, but we'll also improve our own as we benefit from the ideas a
nd productivity they contribute to the world. Giving everyone the opportunity to
connect is the foundation for enabling the knowledge economy. It is not the onl
y thing we need to do, but it's a fundamental and necessary step.[53]
Legal controversies
Main article: Criticism of Facebook
ConnectU lawsuits
Main article: ConnectU
Harvard students Cameron Winklevoss, Tyler Winklevoss, and Divya Narendra accuse
d Zuckerberg of intentionally making them believe he would help them build a soc
ial network called (later called ConnectU).[63] They filed
a lawsuit in 2004, but it was dismissed on a technicality on March 28, 2007. It
was refiled soon thereafter in federal court in Boston. Facebook countersued in
regards to Social Butterfly, a project put out by The Winklevoss Chang Group, a
n alleged partnership between ConnectU and i2hub. On June 25, 2008, the case set
tled and Facebook agreed to transfer over 1.2 million common shares and pay $20
million in cash.[64]
In November 2007, confidential court documents were posted on the website of 021
38, a magazine that catered to Harvard alumni. They included Zuckerberg's social
security number, his parents' home address, and his girlfriend's address. Faceb
ook filed to have the documents removed, but the judge ruled in favor of 02138.[
Saverin lawsuit
A lawsuit filed by Eduardo Saverin against Facebook and Zuckerberg was settled o
ut of court. Though terms of the settlement were sealed, the company affirmed Sa
verin's title as co-founder of Facebook. Saverin signed a non-disclosure contrac
t after the settlement.[66]
Pakistan criminal investigation
In June 2010, Pakistani Deputy Attorney General Muhammad Azhar Sidiqque launched
a criminal investigation into Zuckerberg and Facebook co-founders Dustin Moskov
itz and Chris Hughes after a "Draw Muhammad" contest was hosted on Facebook. The
investigation named the anonymous German woman who created the contest. Sidiqqu
e asked the country's police to contact Interpol to have Zuckerberg and the thre
e others arrested for blasphemy. On May 19, 2010, Facebook's website was tempora
rily blocked in Pakistan until Facebook removed the contest from its website at

the end of May. Sidiqque also asked its UN representative to raise the issue wit
h the United Nations General Assembly.[67][68]
Paul Ceglia
Main article: Paul Ceglia
In June 2010, Paul Ceglia, the owner of a wood pellet fuel company in Allegany C
ounty, upstate New York, filed suit against Zuckerberg, claiming 84% ownership o
f Facebook and seeking monetary damages. According to Ceglia, he and Zuckerberg
signed a contract on April 28, 2003, that an initial fee of $1,000 entitled Cegl
ia to 50% of the website's revenue, as well as an additional 1% interest in the
business per day after January 1, 2004, until website completion. Zuckerberg was
developing other projects at the time, among which was Facemash, the predecesso
r of Facebook, but did not register the domain name until Januar
y 1, 2004. Facebook management dismissed the lawsuit as "completely frivolous".
Facebook spokesman Barry Schnitt told a reporter that Ceglia's counsel had unsuc
cessfully sought an out-of-court settlement.[69][70]
On October 26, 2012, federal authorities arrested Ceglia, charging him with mail
and wire fraud and of "tampering with, destroying and fabricating evidence in a
scheme to defraud the Facebook founder of billions of dollars." Ceglia is accus
ed of fabricating emails to make it appear that he and Zuckerberg discussed deta
ils about an early version of Facebook, although after examining their emails, i
nvestigators found there was no mention of Facebook in them.[71] Some law firms
withdrew from the case before it was initiated and others after Ceglia's arrest.
Depictions in media
The Social Network
Main article: The Social Network
A movie based on Zuckerberg and the founding years of Facebook, The Social Netwo
rk was released on October 1, 2010, and stars Jesse Eisenberg as Zuckerberg. Aft
er Zuckerberg was told about the film, he responded, "I just wished that nobody
made a movie of me while I was still alive."[74] Also, after the film's script w
as leaked on the Internet and it was apparent that the film would not portray Zu
ckerberg in a wholly positive light, he stated that he wanted to establish himse
lf as a "good guy".[75] The film is based on the book The Accidental Billionaire
s by Ben Mezrich, which the book's publicist once described as "big juicy fun" r
ather than "reportage".[76] The film's screenwriter Aaron Sorkin told New York m
agazine, "I don't want my fidelity to be the truth; I want it to be storytelling
", adding, "What is the big deal about accuracy purely for accuracy's sake, and
can we not have the true be the enemy of the good?"[77]
Upon winning the Golden Globes award for Best Picture on January 16, 2011, produ
cer Scott Rudin thanked Facebook and Zuckerberg "for his willingness to allow us
to use his life and work as a metaphor through which to tell a story about comm
unication and the way we relate to each other. [78] Sorkin, who won for Best Scree
nplay, retracted some of the impressions given in his script:[79]
"I wanted to say to Mark Zuckerberg tonight, if you're watching, Rooney Mara
's character makes a prediction at the beginning of the movie. She was wrong. Yo
u turned out to be a great entrepreneur, a visionary, and an incredible altruist
On January 29, 2011, Zuckerberg made a surprise guest appearance on Saturday Nig
ht Live, which was being hosted by Jesse Eisenberg. They both said it was the fi
rst time they ever met.[80] Eisenberg asked Zuckerberg, who had been critical of
his portrayal by the film, what he thought of the movie. Zuckerberg replied, "I
t was interesting."[81] In a subsequent interview about their meeting, Eisenberg
explains that he was "nervous to meet him, because I had spent now, a year and
a half thinking about him ..." He adds, "Mark has been so gracious about somethi

ng that s really so uncomfortable ... The fact that he would do SNL and make fun o
f the situation is so sweet and so generous. It s the best possible way to handle
something that, I think, could otherwise be very uncomfortable."[82][83]
Disputed accuracy
Jeff Jarvis, author of the book Public Parts, interviewed Zuckerberg and believe
s Sorkin made up too much of the story. He states, "That's what the internet is
accused of doing, making stuff up, not caring about the facts."[84]
According to David Kirkpatrick, former technology editor at Fortune magazine and
author of The Facebook Effect:The Inside Story of the Company That Is Connectin
g the World, (2011),[85] "the film is only "40% true ... he is not snide and sar
castic in a cruel way, the way Zuckerberg is played in the movie." He says that
"a lot of the factual incidents are accurate, but many are distorted and the ove
rall impression is false", and concludes that primarily "his motivations were to
try and come up with a new way to share information on the internet".[84]
Although the film portrays Zuckerberg's creation of Facebook in order to elevate
his stature after not getting into any of the elite final clubs at Harvard, Zuc
kerberg himself said he had no interest in joining the clubs.[14] Kirkpatrick ag
rees that the impression implied by the film is "false". Karel Baloun, a former
senior engineer at Facebook, notes that the "image of Zuckerberg as a socially i
nept nerd is overstated..... It is fiction....." He likewise dismisses the film'
s assertion that he "would deliberately betray a friend".[84]
Other depictions
Zuckerberg voiced himself on an episode of The Simpsons titled "Loan-a Lisa", wh
ich first aired on October 3, 2010. In the episode, Lisa Simpson and her friend
Nelson encounter Zuckerberg at an entrepreneurs' convention. Zuckerberg tells Li
sa that she does not need to graduate from college to be wildly successful, refe
rencing Bill Gates and Richard Branson as examples.[86]
On October 9, 2010, Saturday Night Live lampooned Zuckerberg and Facebook.[87] A
ndy Samberg played Zuckerberg. The real Zuckerberg was reported to have been amu
sed: "I thought this was funny."[88]
Stephen Colbert awarded a "Medal of Fear" to Zuckerberg at the Rally to Restore
Sanity and/or Fear on October 30, 2010, "because he values his privacy much more
than he values yours".[89]
Use of other social networks
Zuckerberg created an account with Google+ soon after the social network was unv
eiled, saying he sees it as a "validation for his vision" of online social netwo
rking.[90] By July 2011, Zuckerberg had become the most followed user on Google+
, outranking Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin.[91] As of March 6, 2
012, his ranking has dropped to 184 on the service, behind Page and Brin.[92] Hi
s public profile is minimal with one photo and a bio that reads "I make things".
Zuckerberg has maintained a private account on Twitter under the username "zuck"
, although as of November 2014, the account's status is suspended.[94] In 2009,
he revealed that the public account "finkd" also belonged to him.[95]
Zuckerberg donated an undisclosed amount to Diaspora, an open-source personal we
b server that implements a distributed social networking service. He called it a
"cool idea".[39]
Zuckerberg founded the Start-up: Education foundation.[96][97] On September 22,
2010, it was reported that Zuckerberg had donated $100million to Newark Public S

chools, the public school system of Newark, New Jersey.[98][99] Critics noted th
e timing of the donation as being close to the release of The Social Network, wh
ich painted a somewhat negative portrait of Zuckerberg.[100] Zuckerberg responde
d to the criticism, saying, "The thing that I was most sensitive about with the
movie timing was, I didn't want the press about The Social Network movie to get
conflated with the Newark project. I was thinking about doing this anonymously j
ust so that the two things could be kept separate."[101] Newark Mayor Cory A. Bo
oker stated that he and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie had to convince Zucke
rberg's team not to make the donation anonymously.[101]
On December 9, 2010, Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, and investor Warren Buffett signed
a promise they called "The Giving Pledge ", in which they promised to donate to
charity at least half of their wealth over the course of time, and invited other
s among the wealthy to donate 50% or more of their wealth to charity.[102]
On December 19, 2013, Zuckerberg announced a donation of 18 million Facebook sha
res to the Silicon Valley Community Foundation, to be executed by the end of the
month based on Facebook's valuation as of then, the shares totaled $990 million i
n value. On December 31, 2013, the donation was recognized as the largest charit
able gift on public record for 2013.[103] The Chronicle of Philanthropy placed Z
uckerberg and his wife at the top of the magazine's annual list of 50 most gener
ous Americans for 2013, having donated roughly $1 billion to charity.[104]
In October 2014, Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan donated $25 million to c
ombat the ebola virus disease, specifically the ebola virus epidemic in West Afr
In 2002, Zuckerberg registered to vote in Westchester County, New York, where he
grew up, but did not cast a ballot until November 2008. Santa Clara County Regi
strar of Voters Spokeswoman, Elma Rosas, told Bloomberg that Zuckerberg is liste
d as no preference on voter rolls, and he voted in the past two general elections,
in 2008 and 2012.[107][108] On Zuckerberg's Facebook page, he has Chris Christi
e, Cory Booker, Nicolas Sarkozy, and Barack Obama in his likes section.[109]
Mark Zuckerberg has never specified his own political views: some consider him a
conservative,[110][111] while others consider him liberal.[112] In 2013, numero
us liberal and progressive groups, such as The League of Conservation Voters, Mo, the Sierra Club, Democracy for America, CREDO, Daily Kos,, and
Presente and Progressives United agreed to either pull their Facebook ad buys o
r not buy Facebook ads for at least two weeks, in protest of Zuckerberg ads fund
ed by that were in support of oil drilling and the Keystone XL pipeline,
and in opposition to Obamacare among Republican US senators who back immigration
reform.[clarification needed][113]
On February 13, 2013, Zuckerberg hosted his first ever fundraising event for New
Jersey Governor Chris Christie. Zuckerberg's particular interest on this occasi
on was education reform, and Christie's education reform work focused on teacher
s unions and the expansion of charter schools.[114][115] Later that year, Zucker
berg would host a campaign fundraiser for Newark mayor Cory Booker, who was runn
ing in the 2013 New Jersey special Senate election.[116] In September 2010, with
the support of Governor Chris Christie, Booker obtained a $100 million pledge f
rom Zuckerberg to Newark Public Schools.[117] In December 2012, Zuckerberg donat
ed 18 million shares to the Silicon Valley Community Foundation, a community org
anization that includes education in its list of grant-making areas.[118][119]
On April 11, 2013, Zuckerberg led the launch of a 501(c)(4) lobbying group calle
d The founders and contributors to the group were primarily Silicon Vall
ey entrepreneurs and investors, and its president was Joe Green, a close friend
of Zuckerberg.[120][121][122][123] The goals of the group include immigration re

form, improving the state of education in the US, and enabling more technologica
l breakthroughs that benefit the public,[124][125] yet it has also been criticiz
ed for financing ads advocating a variety of oil and gas development initiatives
, including drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and the Keystone XL
A media report on June 20, 2013 revealed that Zuckerberg actively engaged with F
acebook users on his own profile page after the online publication of a v
ideo. In response to a claim that the organization is "just about tech wa
nting to hire more people", the Internet entrepreneur replied: "The bigger probl
em we re trying to address is ensuring the 11 million undocumented folks living in
this country now and similar folks in the future are treated fairly."[127]
In June 2013, Zuckerberg joined Facebook employees in a company float as part of
the annual San Francisco Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Celebrat
ion. The company first participated in the event in 2011, with 70 employees, and
this number increased to 700 for the 2013 march. The 2013 pride celebration was
especially significant, as it followed a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that deemed
the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) unconstitutional.[128][129]
When questioned about the mid-2013 PRISM scandal at the TechCrunch Disrupt confe
rence in September 2013, Zuckerberg stated that the U.S. government "blew it." H
e further explained that the government performed poorly in regard to the protec
tion of the freedoms of its citizens, the economy, and companies.[52]
Personal life
At a party put on by his fraternity during his sophomore year, Zuckerberg met Pr
iscilla Chan,[130][131] a fellow student whom he began dating in 2003. Chan is t
he daughter of Chinese-Vietnamese refugees, who arrived in the U.S. after the Fa
ll of Saigon.[132] She was born in Braintree, Massachusetts, a suburb of Boston,
and is a 2003 graduate of Quincy High School.[133][134]
In September 2010, Zuckerberg invited Chan, by then a medical student at the Uni
versity of California, San Francisco,[135] to move into his rented Palo Alto hou
se. Zuckerberg studied Mandarin in preparation for the couple's visit to the Peo
ple's Republic of China in December 2010.[136][137] On May 19, 2012, Zuckerberg
and Chan married in Zuckerberg's backyard in an event that also celebrated her g
raduation from medical school.[138][139][140] On July 31, 2015, Zuckerberg annou
nced that he and Chan were expecting a baby girl. He stated that he felt confide
nt that the risk of miscarrying was low so far into the pregnancy, after having
already suffered three miscarriages.[141]
