Mark Zuckerberg is an American computer programmer and Internet entrepreneur. He is a co-founder of Facebook, and currently operates as its chairman and chief executive officer. His net worth is estimated to be 71.5 billion dollars as of September 2017, and he is ranked by Forbes as the fifth richest person in the world. Zuckerberg launched Facebook from his Harvard University dormitory room on February 4, 2004. He was assisted by his college roommates and fellow Harvard students Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz, and Chris Hughes. The group then introduced Facebook to other college campuses. Facebook expanded rapidly, reaching one billion users by 2012. Meanwhile, Zuckerberg was involved in various legal disputes brought by others in the group, who claimed a share of the company based upon their involvement during the development phase of Facebook. Mark Zuckerberg has a success story so great that most people could only wish for a tenth of what he´s managed to accomplish. Despite all of his success, he comes from a modest background and normal parents. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sam Slydell.

Your organization can save and thrive in the cloud with this first nontechnical guide to cloud computing for business leaders. In less than a decade, Google, Amazon, and Salesforce.com went from unknown ideas to powerhouse fixtures in the economic landscape; in even less time, offerings such as LinkedIn, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and many others also carved out important roles; in less than five years, Apple´s iTunes became the largest music retailer in North America. They all share one key strategic decision - each of these organizations chose to harness the power of cloud computing to power their drives to dominance. With roots in supercomputing and many other technical disciplines, cloud computing is ushering in an entirely new economic reality: technology-enabled enterprises built on low-cost, flexible, and limitless technical infrastructures. The Executive´s Guide to Cloud Computing reveals how you can apply the power of cloud computing throughout your enterprise, giving members of the C-suite a detailed look at: Why cloud computing must be a top priority on your company´s IT road maps How the drive for scale, lower costs, and greater agility is making cloud computing a fiscal and technological imperative The relationship between cloud computing and other relevant IT initiatives The strategic implications of cloud computing for the enterprise Where to begin and how to get started integrating cloud computing into your existing operations Now you can harness cloud computing´s potential for your organization.

In a little more than half a decade, Facebook has gone from a dorm-room novelty to a company with 500 million users - and an essential part of the social life not only of teenagers but hundreds of millions of adults worldwide. As Facebook spreads around the globe, it creates surprising effects - even becoming instrumental in political protests. Veteran technology reporter David Kirkpatrick had the full cooperation of Facebook´s key executives in researching this fascinating history. Kirkpatrick tells us how Facebook was created, why it has flourished, and where it is going next. He chronicles its successes and missteps, and gives readers the most complete assessment anywhere of founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, the central figure in the company´s remarkable ascent. This is the Facebook story that can be found nowhere else. Kirkpatrick shows how Zuckerberg refused to compromise, insistently focusing on growth over profits and preaching that Facebook must dominate (his word) communication on the Internet. In the process, he and a small group of key executives have created a company that has changed social life in the United States and elsewhere, a company that has become a ubiquitous presence in marketing, and one that has altered politics, business, and even our sense of our own identity. This is the Facebook Effect. This special edition also includes an exclusive conversation between the author and Randi Zuckerberg, who offers unique insight as a marketer at Facebook and the CEO´s sister. You´ll hear them talk about major company milestones, high-profile product launches, and the CEO´s growth - emotionally and experientially - as a leader. They also discuss the controversial issues surrounding Facebook´s privacy policies. 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Kirkpatrick.
