Together with his roommates and students at Harvard University, Mark Zuckerberg invented Facebook in a Harvard dorm room, then also presented the project to other university campuses in the United States, before moving to Palo Alto in California.
In 2007, at the age of 23, Zuckerberg became a billionaire following the success of Facebook. In 2012, worldwide, the number of registered users of Facebook reached one billion. Zuckerberg was involved in several lawsuits that were brought by other members of the group, who claimed an equity stake based on their involvement during the development phase of Facebook.
Since 2010, Time has included Zuckerberg among the 100 richest and most influential people in the world in its annual Person of the Year ranking. In 2011 Zuckerberg ranked first in the ranking of the most influential Jews in the world drawn up by the Jerusalem Post and has always occupied the top positions of that ranking ever since.
A film adaptation of the story of the birth of Facebook was narrated in the 2010 film The Social Network. As of November 17, 2022, according to Forbes, with an estimated net worth of $41.3 billion, he is one of the richest men in the world.
Now, Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook and CEO of the Meta group, reached the podium twice in his debut competition in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu last weekend. He announced it himself with a post on his Instagram page. In 2022 Zuckerberg had also posted photos of his MMA training with Californian fighter Khai The Shadow Wu.
On that occasion he had received compliments from many athletes including Conor McGregor, who had commented: "Yooh! Fot .... amazing Mark!" Zuckerberg had spoken last year on Joe Rogan's podcast, voice of the UFC, explaining that he had approached these disciplines during the pandemic and was now delving into all the various aspects of combat.
Mark said: "I love watching mixed martial arts and have introduced some of my friends to it so much that now we train together." Zuckerberg has been seen several times during UFC events and appears to have become friends with the president of the promotion Dana White.
