Co-founder and CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg has transformed the landscape of social media and digital communication. Since launching Facebook from his Harvard dorm room in 2004, Zuckerberg has led the company to become one of the world’s most influential tech giants. With the acquisitions of Instagram and WhatsApp, he expanded Facebook’s reach and user base significantly. His net worth, largely derived from his holdings in Facebook (now Meta Platforms Inc.), places him among the wealthiest individuals globally. Zuckerberg’s vision for the metaverse represents his continued influence in shaping the future of digital interaction.
