Mark Zuckerberg is the youngest commencement speaker at Harvard[edit]

Hi Everyone,

Over the course of Harvard's 380-years as an educational institution, it is believed that Mark Zuckerberg is the youngest person to ever mount the podium to deliver a commencement speech at Harvard. This is a rare attainment and I believe it should be included in his biography. Thanks.

Authored any scientific papers?[edit]

The article does not list any published works, including scientific papers, by Mark Zuckerberg, either on computer science or any topic. Is that correct, he never authored any and just went straight into commercial research and development? I've asked a similar question on the Bill Gates and Steve Jobs talk pages, as they also have no scientific papers listed in their articles, but Gates does have two books listed. 5Q5 (talk) 17:00, 13 June 2017 (UTC)

He dropped out of Harvard before receiving an undergraduate degree. I would expect that he hasn't authored any papers. Power~enwiki (talk) 19:54, 13 June 2017 (UTC)

He transferred to the exclusive private school Phillips Exeter Academy, in New Hampshire, in his junior year, where he won prizes in science (math, astronomy, and physics) and classical studies. The Academy produced a popular annual booklet with students’ photographs, dorms, and hometowns which was known on campus as the facebook. In his youth...

If you're suggesting that the above text after "classical studies" should be inserted, then we need an accessible citation (i.e. book, magazine, newspaper, URL) to support it. This also seems like it would be better for the Facebook article if it served as the site's namesake. Snuggums (talk / edits) 15:57, 10 July 2017 (UTC)

Portrait edit request[edit]

Request to change Mark Zuckerbergs's portrait to the left of his wikipedia page to the following image: http://www.nimble.news/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/zuckerberg_lizard_people-777x437.png Jhoward10 (talk) 22:00, 31 July 2017 (UTC)

Not done this isn't the place for humor, so obviously edited pictures with joke features like that are inappropriate for a site that is supposed to be a professional encyclopedia. Snuggums (talk / edits) 22:03, 31 July 2017 (UTC)

[edit]

The intro section of this article totally reads like an advertisement and omits all Zuckerberg's controversies (fake news, legal stuff, privacy matters, his dress, etc.). Rather than just summing and lauding his achievements ("Forbes' World's Most Powerful," his net worth, etc.) it should describe his impact from a neutral point of view. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Historybuff18 (talkcontribs) 02:30, 11 September 2017 (UTC)

There's a sentence in the lead stating "Zuckerberg was involved in various legal disputes brought by others in the group, who claimed a share of the company based upon their involvement during the development phase of Facebook", so not all legal stuff is left out. If you have specific suggestions on what else should be included (i.e. certain times when site spread fake news), then feel free to mention them here.
