It is uncertain who initially came up with the idea, but there is no question CEO and founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, put the idea to its full potential. The story includes many hardships and conflicts between Saverin and Zuckerberg, and includes a controversy between where the idea originated from. Zuckerberg himself needed to rebuild his reputation from past blunders and disputes that bullied his image. His encounter with the Harvard Winklevoss twins changed everything. Zuckerberg was known for writing computer language and designing ideas that could attract the world's attention, and as a result, he was requested for designing a website very similar to Facebook's features. He knew that the website idea was marvelous, but the website managers would hesitate into unraveling and taking advantage of their idea. Leaning toward treachery and betrayal, He set out with another group of Harvard programmers to design a website that could bring the whole world together online and make thousands of investors and executives billionaires overnight.
Parker played a key factor to establishing the future visionary of the company. In the financial visionary, they agreed on establishing a company with a net worth of a couple ten million dollars, but what Parker said went of the charts completely and made workers in awestruck. Through his realistic imagination, he imagined the company to have a net worth of hundreds of billion dollars. He eased Zuckerberg and other key executives that this company if not an idea to think unsightly of. If managed correctly and played correctly in finance and stock exchange, this company could surpass any other internet social network and could leave the whole world in astonishment
When The Winklevoss brothers endorsed the fact that their idea had been stolen and possibly plagiarized, they took all anger and hatred toward Zuckerberg into a lawsuit where they sued him for several tens of millions of dollars. With work accumulating along his heavy schedule, Zuckerberg had worked day and night, therefore he dropped out of Harvard University and set out to Palo Alto, California, where he could expand the company and attract more investors and workers. All shareholders and executives moved to California along with Zuckerberg. His main concern however was kept on Saverin. The Brazilian who had earned $300,000 over the summer was not transitioning with the company and was being left behind.
Tension between Parker and Saverin was rising rapidly when finally Zuckerberg was convinced Saverin was taking 30 percent of the company unreasonably. Secretly and with cruelty he reduced his best friend’s share of 30 percent into a slim 0.03 percent. While Zuckerberg dealt with a very patronizing lawsuit discussing the idea of Facebook and where it originated from. His mind itself was deeply overwhelmed with the company itself just when he became buried in another company lawsuit. This lawsuit was held against Mark Zuckerberg from his past best friend and this was like no other conflict he had dealt with. He lost his best friend and truly understood how cruel his actions had resulted to. The lawsuits resulted into past memories that reminded Zuckerberg of his cruelty and blunders. He lost both lawsuits and was forced to pay the settlement of 67 million dollars to the Winklevoss brothers. The settlement terms of Saverin were not disclosed, but his name was later restored on the masthead as the co-founder of Facebook.
Zuckerberg faced many cruelties and blusters in his life, but he had one quality that many business men do not have. He is a hard working CEO that is no doubt an intelligent man, and when he has to; he risks everything for his company, Facebook.
