Mark Zuckerberg On SNL : I invented poking
The Social Network star Jesse Eisenberg, who hosted “Saturday Night Live” opened the show talking about the movie’s impressive eight Oscar nominations. Then the monologue switched to video of actual Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg watching his two “Berg” backstage, “Why can’t I go in there, I’m the real Mark Zuckerberg? That guy’s like my evil twin and that guy’s Andy Sandberg. Those guys are such nerds! I mean I invented poking …”
Mark Zuckerberg is the founder and CEO of Facebook, which he started in his college dorm room in 2004 with roomates Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes. Zuckerberg is responsible for setting the overall direction and product strategy for Facebook. He leads the design of Facebook’s service and development of its core technology and infrastructure.
Earlier in life, Zuckerberg developed a music recommendation system called Synapse and a peer-to-peer client called Wirehog. However, he abandoned both to pursue new projects.
Mark Zuckerberg attended Harvard University and studied computer science before founding Facebook. While at Harvard, he created Facemash, a website that compared students’ dorm photos side-by-side in a fashion similar to HOT or NOT. Harvard administration was not amused, and Zuckerberg faced subsequent disciplinary action. Less than three months later, he launched Facebook.
In September 2010, Zuckerberg donated $100 million to the Newark Public School System to help renovate and revamp the system. He won the 2007 Crunchie Award for ‘Best Startup CEO.’ He was the Time Magazine 2010 Person Of The Year.
