Mr. Mark Zuckerberg has returned from Harvard from Thursday, where he launched Facebook, and then he dropped out that he is telling the graduates it is up to you to bring the purpose of the world, you just fight against inequality and strengthen the global community. He like the graduates they were the millennial who started the Facebook in his Harvard dorm room in 2004. At that time he dropped out the, and he again returned on this Thursday to receive his honorary degree. “Change starts locally. Even global changes start small with people like us,” the Facebook CEO said. And also he shared the story about the graduates such as Davis Razu Aznar, who is the former city leader who leads the effort to legalize gay marriage in Mexico City, and he also said about Agnes Igoye that who grew up in dispute zone in Uganda and now he trains the Law Enforcement Officers.
And Mark added his story too am a student from the dorm room that connecting the one community at a time and then keeping it until one day we can connect the whole world. Such high talk now comes generally to Mr. Zuckerberg; now he is a 33-year-old billionaire who has pledged to give away nearly all of his wealth. In February, he planned out an ambitious, if dark, vision for Facebook that performed the company to develop “social infrastructure” that would help to build a “global community that works for all of us.”
But it also strikes a subtle difference with the review that Facebook has taken recently not so much for connecting the world as for losing to predict how weak that connectedness could be to those who abuse it.
Everything began as a closed networking site for the Harvard students is now beeing a global communications force with nearly 2 billion of members. The Facebook founding was the subject of a Hollywood movie, that is “The Social Network,” in 2010. Facebook’s impact has been heartfelt. It has connected with the people who would have never met or otherwise, let them for the supportive networks through online and offline. And it has allowed the people to communicate in the developing countries even if they don’t have a phone number or a smartphone. But it has also helped to spread misinformation adjoining on the propaganda; this is the hateful views and bullying, it is reflecting the worst parts of humanity back to us.
In his graduation speech, in his interviews and in his February announcement, Mr. Zuckerberg is decidedly positive about all that. Now he is saying he wants to make the world more open and easy to connect for more than a decade now, and he doesn’t comply.
“I wondered if I was just wrong, an impostor, a 22-year-old kid who had no idea how the world worked,” Mr. Zuckerberg said. “Now, years later, I understand that is how things work with no sense of higher purpose. It’s up to us to create it so we can all keep moving forward together.”
Following the speech, Mr. Zuckerberg’s voice cracked with emotion as he talked about the high school student he the teachers who are living in the U.S. illegally. At the time Mr. Zuckerberg asked him what he wants for his birthday, that the student began talking about others he needed to help, and asked for a book on social justice.
“Here is a young guy who has every reason to be cynical,” Mr. Zuckerberg said, his eyes completely with tears. “He was not sure if the country he calls home the only one he knew that they were going to refuse him his dream of going to college. But he was not feeling sorry for himself. He was not even considering of himself.”
If he can do this, Mr. Zuckerberg said, “then we owe it to the world to do our part too.”
Mr. Zuckerberg is not all talk on this front. He acknowledged the “Giving Pledge” promise to donate the majority of his money in 2010; within five years later, he boosted that to 99 per cent. Unitedly with his wife, pediatrician Priscilla Chan, he established the Chan-Zuckerberg Initiative, and a philanthropic organization centered on advancing science and education.
Mr. Zuckerberg observes the another famous in Harvard dropout, that is Bill Gates, who addressed before its graduates a decade ago. And the Apple’s co-founder Steve Jobs, who dropped out of the Reed College in Oregon, gave Stanford’s graduation speech in 2005, suggesting students to “stay hungry, stay foolish.”
In extension to addressing the statement, Mr. Zuckerberg took an honorary degree, 12 years after the dropping out of Harvard, and was Subsequently he introduced to the graduates as “Dr. Mark Zuckerberg.”
Others receiving honorary degrees that included the actress Judi Dench, and the composer John Williams (known as “Star Wars,” “Harry Potter” and many other scores) and the Somali human rights activist and the physician Hawa Abdi Dhiblawe.
“If I get through this speech today it will be the first time Iam actually finish something here at Harvard,” Mr. Zuckerberg said.
“Let us face it; you finished something I never could. If I get through this speech today, it’ll be the first time I finish something here at Harvard.”
10 Memorable Quotes of Mark Zuckerberg
“My best memory from Harvard is meeting Priscilla. I had just launched this prank website Facemash, and the ad (administrative) board wanted to ‘see me.’ Everyone thought I was going to get kicked out. My parents drove up here to help me pack my stuff. My friends threw me a going-away party. Who does that? As luck would have it, Priscilla was at that party with her friends. And we met in line for the bathroom in the Pfoho Belltower (a dorm), and in what must seem like one of the all-time most romantic lines, I turned to her and said- ‘I’m getting kicked out in three days, so we need to go on a date quickly.’”
“Ideas don’t come out fully formed. They only become apparent as you work on them. You just have to get started. If I had to know everything about connecting people before I got started, I never would have built Facebook.”
“It’s excellent to be idealistic. But be prepared to be misunderstood. Anyone working on a big vision is going to get called crazy, even if you end up right.”

In just one year, more than three in four U.S. millennials donated to charity and more than seven in 10 raised money for another one. But it’s not just about giving money. You can also give time. And I promise you if you just take an hour or two a week that’s all it takes to give someone a hand and help them reach their potential.”
“Every generation expands the circle of people we consider ‘one of us.’ And in our generation, that now includes the whole world. … But we live in an unstable time. There are people left behind by globalization across the entire world. And it’s tough to care about people in other places when we don’t first feel safe about our lives here at home. There’s pressure to turn inwards.”
“This is the struggle of our time. The forces of freedom, that openness and global community against the forces of authoritarianism, isolationism, and nationalism. Forces for the flow of knowledge, trade, and immigration against those who would slow them down. It is not a battle of nations. It’s a fight of ideas.”
