Mark Zuckerberg & the Web’s hottest platform- aka facebook…

For our grad class, we are assigned weekly readings to comment on and discuss. This particular reading is important because it details the rise of the facebook giant, generated by a Harvard student named Mark Zuckerberg.

Here, success is attributed to this young man because he had the foresight (or luck??) to hold out and wait, not accepting Yahoo’s outrageous 1 billion dollar offer. Instead, Zuckerberg is rewarded with the dubious honor of having his baby, facebook, now recognizably as one of the largest platforms for a new software explosion ever in the tech field.

Facebook is now generating even more diverse users (as opposed to myspace, etc) due to copious amounts of downloads and software apps.

Quite interesting stuff-makes me feel like inventing something..
