  • It was founded by Mark Zuckerberg with his college roommatesand fellow Harvard University students:

    Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes

    Published at February 4, 2004.The name of facebook was inspired by the title of book for first term in Harvard University

    which is contain of students profile. This book used to help the students to know each other.

    The website's membership was initially limited by the founders to Harvard students, but was expanded to other colleges, also corporations, schools, and by September 2006, to everyone

    of age 13 and older with a valid email address.

  • Facebooks Predecessor, FacemashIn October 28, 2003. Zuckerberg wrote the software for the Facemash website when he was in his second year of college. The website was set up as a type of hot or notgame for Harvard students.

    The website allowed visitors to compare two student pictures side-by-side and let them choose who was hot and who was not .

  • Facemash used photos compiled from the face

    books of nine dormitories, placing

    two next to each other at a time and asking users to choose the 'hotter' person". To

    accomplish this, Mark Zuckerberg hacked the

    "facebooks" Harvard maintained to help

    students identify each other and used the

    images to populate his Facemash website.

  • However, the website was shut down by Harvard executives a few days after it opened.

    Mark Zuckerberg faced charges of violating copyrights, breach of security, and violating individual privacy for stealing the student pictures that he used to populate the website.

    He later faced expulsion from Harvard University for his actions. However, all the charges were eventually dropped.

  • In January 2004, Mark Zuckerberg began writing the code for a new website, known

    as 'theFacebook'. He was inspired this social media from

    the incident of Facemash.

  • Just six days after the launch of the site, three Harvard University seniors:Cameron Winklevoss, Tyler Winklevoss and Divya Narendra

    The three complained to the Crimson, and the newspaper began an investigation. Zuckerberg knew about the investigation so he used TheFacebook.com to find

    members in the site who identified themselves as members of the Crimson.

    He examined a history of failed logins to see if any of the Crimson members have ever entered an incorrect password into TheFacebook.com.

    In the cases in which they had failed to login, Mark tried to use them to access the Crimson members' Harvard email accounts, and he was successful in accessing two of

    them. In the end, three Crimson members filed a lawsuit against Zuckerberg which was later settled.

  • Within the first month, more than half the undergraduate population at Harvard was registered on the service.

    In March 2004, Facebook expanded toStanford, Columbia and Yale.

    In June 2004, Facebook moved its base of operations to Palo Alto, California.

    The company dropped The from its name after purchasing the domain name facebook.com in 2005 for $200,000.
