Zuckerberg’s father operated dental practice from home. Thus, Zuckerberg built a software program, ‘ZuckNet,’ through which all the computers in the house could communicate which each other. ZuckNet was a version of AOL’s instant messenger, which was launched the same year. 

In his high school years, Zuckerberg worked for Intelligent Media Group and developed a music player ‘Synapse Media Player.’ The application used a machine learning process to learn the listening habits of the users.

Then, in his second year at Harvard, Zuckerberg created a program, ‘CourseMatch,’ where students were allowed to form study groups and class selection decisions based on the choices of other students. A few months later, Zuckerberg built another program, ‘Facemash,’ where students could select the best-looking Person from the given photos. 

Facemash site built by Zuckerberg went up, but Harvard University shut it down as its popularity overwhelmed one of the University’s Network switches which prevented the students from accessing the Internet. Also, many students complained about using their photos without their permission on the App, to which Zuckerberg apologized publicly. 

On February 4, 2004, Zuckerberg initially launched ‘TheFacebook.’ Six days after its launch, Harvard seniors alleged that Zuckerberg used their ideas to build ‘TheFacebook.’ After the official launch of Facebook, the three seniors Cameron Winklevoss, Tyler Winklevoss, and Divya Narendra filed a lawsuit against Zuckerberg and agreed at a settlement of 1.2 million Facebook shares. As a result, Zuckerberg dropped out of Harvard to complete the project he launched.
