2) While studying at Harward University, Zuckerberg built a “hot or not” website, called Facemash, that took online photos from facebooks of the college’s Houses. Users were then asked to select which one they thought was “hotter”. There was a massive backlash and Zuckerberg was banned from access to Harvard’s internet and accused of breaching security and individual privacy.
