Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook has returned to Harvard to pick up his degree 12 years after dropping out to work full-time on Facebook.
Mark founded what was then called “The Facebook” in 2004 in his college dormitory. The Facebook was at first limited to only Harvard students before later expanding to other Ivy League universities.
Delivering the commencement address – a speech given to graduating students – to the 2017 graduating students on Thursday, he said, “It’s good to be idealistic. But be prepared to be misunderstood. Anyone working on a big vision will get called crazy, even if you end up right. Anyone working on a complex problem will get blamed for not fully understanding the challenge, even though it’s impossible to know everything upfront. Anyone taking initiative will get criticized for moving too fast, because there’s always someone who wants to slow you down.”
