During his senior high school, he and Adam D’ Angelo invented an app called Synapse Media Player, an MP3 player that kept records of favourite songs and made a playlist based on their choices. Microsoft tried to acquire the company, but the founders got patent on the app and went to college. (Adam is the founder of Quora.)

Big companies like Google, Microsoft, MySpace and Yahoo wanted to buy Facebook, but Zuckerberg held his firm.

A team of 12 people operate his Facebook page monitoring comments and pictures, and his posts.
7. He is protective of his privacy
He made some significant legitimate steps to ensure privacy. He bought a $100 million plot of land in Hawaii in 2014 and decided not to sue the people who own portions of the property through generational ties. He also tried to demolish four houses in and around his home in Palo Alto, Calif.
