Mark Zuckerberg shares video of the moment he discovered he got accepted to Harvard before he created Facebook

Despite later dropping out of the prestigious educational mecca, it was while at Harvard that Mark, now 33, developed the idea for his social media platform that would change the social habits of the world.

He launched the first version of his social network in his dorm room in February 2004 and packed in his studies later that year.

By 2012 he had more than one billion users and the money was pouring in from advertisers across the globe.

Four years later and Zuckerberg was reportedly worth $55 billion (£42 billion) and all before even turning 30.

According to his roommate Arie Hasit: "We had books called Face Books, which included the names and pictures of everyone who lived in the student dorms.

“At first, he built a site and placed two pictures, or pictures of two males and two females.

"Visitors to the site had to choose who was 'hotter' and according to the votes there would be a ranking."
