While Mark Zuckerberg was attending Harvard, he launched Facebook from his dormitory room. He didn’t just create the platform on his own though, he was assisted by fellow Harvard students Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz, and Chris Hughes. Originally open to only college students, Facebook became one of the fastest growing social platforms, reaching about one billion users by 2012. Since then, Facebook has experienced exponential growth by attracting more than 2 billion monthly active users.
On December 2012, Zuckerberg and his wife announced that over the course of their life they will give the majority of their wealth to advancing human potential and promoting equality. Then they announced they will give away 99 percent of their Facebook shares to the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.
