Zuckerberg constructed a website called "Facemash" in 2003 while participating in Harvard College.

The website approached Warm or Not and also used " pictures put together from the on the internet face books of 9 Homes,

placing two next to each other at once and asking users to choose the "hotter" individual".

Facemash brought in 450 visitors as well as 22,000 photo-views in its initial 4 hrs.

The website was sent out to a number of university group listservs, but was shut down a couple of days later on by Harvard administration. Zuckerberg encountered expulsion as well as was charged with breaching safety and security,

breaking copyrights and going against individual privacy. Eventually, the fees were dropped.

Zuckerberg increased on this task that term by producing a social research study device ahead of an art history final examination.

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

A "face book" is a pupil directory site including pictures and also individual info.





In 2003, Harvard had only a paper version in addition to personal online directory sites.

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

" It is clear that the technology required to produce a central Web site is easily available ... the benefits are lots of." Zuckerberg consulted with Harvard student Eduardo Saverin,
