Marc Zuckerberg

CEO and founder of Facebook, Marc Zuckerberg became a billionaire by the tender age of 24, a hundred percent due to the popularity and success of his social networking site.  In 2010, Forbes ranked him as the 35th richest American.  Launching the site while studying at Harvard in 2004, although wealthy, it’s not been such a smooth ride for Zuckerberg who was subject to a whole slew of legal battles against his fellow students who claimed they – at least in part – were responsible for the founding of the mega social media site.  Ultimately though there is no doubt that it was Zuckerberg who developed the site’s technical platform.
