Zuckerberg constructed a web site called "Facemash" in 2003 while attending Harvard College.

The site was comparable to Hot or Not as well as used "photos assembled from the online face books of 9 Houses,





positioning two beside each other at once as well as asking users to choose the "hotter" individual".

Facemash brought in 450 visitors as well as 22,000 photo-views in its initial four hrs.

The website was sent out to several school team listservs, but was closed down a few days later on by Harvard management. Zuckerberg encountered expulsion and also was charged with breaching safety,

violating copyrights as well as breaching specific privacy. Inevitably, the costs were gone down.

Zuckerberg increased on this task that term by creating a social research tool ahead of an art history last test.

He posted all art pictures to a website, each of which was accompanied by a remarks area, then shared the site with his classmates.

I assume it's type of silly that it would take the University a couple of years to navigate to it. I can do it better than they can, as well as I can do it in a week."

In January 2004, Zuckerberg coded a new site, called "TheFacebook", influenced by a Crimson content about Facemash, specifying,
