We’re all fascinated by the rich and famous, so here 3 quick facts on Zuckerberg:

1. His birthdate is May 14, 1984 and he was born in White Plains, New York.

2. He attended Harvard but left after his sophomore year to concentrate on creating Facebook, which was created in his college dorm room.

3. In 2010, he signed the “Giving Pledge” promising to donate at least 50% of his wealth to charity over the course of his lifetime.  (Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, and George Lucas are other Giving Pledge members.)
