Billionaire Hot or Not?
Already the subject of a book or two, the origins of Facebook are now providing enough soap for a full-scale opera. A new article charges that FB founder Mark Zuckerberg hacked into different accounts and used various means of subterfuge to ensure that his creation would surpass that of a similar idea from some older classmates, who eventually sued him. But perhaps all sophomores can take heart that FB started out as an undergraduate Crimson “Hot or Not.” Oh, and don’t feel too bad for the deceived upperclassmen, who eventually walked away with a $65M settlement. That’s a lot of FarmVille chickens.
