The site approached Warm or Not and also made use of " images assembled from the on-line face books of 9 Houses,

positioning 2 alongside each other at once and asking customers to select the "hotter" person".

Facemash drew in 450 site visitors and also 22,000 photo-views in its very first 4 hours.

The website was sent to numerous campus group listservs, yet was closed down a few days later by Harvard administration. Zuckerberg faced expulsion and also was charged with breaching safety and security,

going against copyrights and violating private privacy. Eventually, the fees were dropped.

Zuckerberg broadened on this project that term by developing a social research study device ahead of an art background final exam.

He published all art images to a internet site, each of which was accompanied by a comments area, then shared the website with his schoolmates.

A "face publication" is a student directory site including pictures as well as individual information.

In 2003, Harvard had only a paper version together with private online directories.

Zuckerberg informed The Harvard Crimson, " Everybody's been talking a lot about a universal face publication within Harvard. ...

I assume it's sort of silly that it would take the University a couple of years to navigate to it. https://hertzcline602.livejournal.com/profile can do it much better than they can, as well as I can do it in a week."

In January 2004, Zuckerberg coded a new site, known as "TheFacebook", influenced by a Crimson editorial about Facemash, mentioning,

" It is clear that the technology required to produce a centralized Website is easily offered ... the advantages are numerous." Zuckerberg met Harvard trainee Eduardo Saverin,

and each of them agreed to spend $1,000 in the site.

On February 4, 2004, Zuckerberg introduced "TheFacebook", originally located at thefacebook.com.
