Teenagers these days are mostly busy socializing via their smartphones or are addicted to playing games on their PCs, XBOXs or Playstations or some just like to party hard. But what were the technology moguls Mark and Bill were doing in their teens?
First of all, they weren’t the usual young guys but were dreamers and avid chasers of their big dreams. They knew they were destined for greatness as their interests and passions set them apart from the herd.
Mark Zuckerberg is a well known American technology entrepreneur who founded the most popular social media website of the world “Facebook”.
Mark,34, founded Facebook in 2004 when he was just 19. But before becoming a renowned tech billionaire he was just an enthusiastic teenager chasing his dream of transforming the world for the better.
Apparently, he was a nerd. Ok not, that usual nerd because he didn’t like books much but he absolutely loved computers. Actually his father who was a dentist had a thing for computers and he transferred his knowledge about them to his son.
At the age of only 10 Mark and his father wrote a program that connected the computer at their home with the computer in the father’s office. They called it “ZuckNet.” It alerted doctor Z, as he is known, when a patient arrived. It was genius and it worked better than having the receptionist yelling , “Patient is here!”
