Whatever your personal opinion of the site, there is no question that Facebook has changed the way we talk, share photos and make friends, and has helped make the world a smaller place. But what about the site's founder, Mark Zuckerberg - is he a pioneering genius, or as a certain Hollywood film portrayed, a power-hungry megalomanic? Here are ten of his most notable quotes to help you decide...
"I think that people just have this core desire to express who they are. And I think that's always existed."
Perfectly hitting one of the main reasons why his site became so incredibly popular, this quote comes from an interview with US TV host Charlie Rose in November 2011. Offering users a clear, comprehensive, personalisable platform was one of the reasons Facebook triumphed over its multitude of rivals.
"The question isn't, 'what do we want to know about people?' It's, 'what do people want to tell about themselves?'"
From the same interview as above, which also featured company COO Sheryl Sandberg, Zuckerberg laid out one of the main queries critics had of Facebook, which had been accused of harvesting data from its users to bombard them with targeted adverts.
"Helping a billion people connect is amazing, humbling and by far the thing I am most proud of in my life."
Facebook announced it had hit one billion users in October 2012, a mere seven years after its launch, and Zuckerberg marked the milestone by writing the above on his own Facebook profile page. The landmark was also marked by the infamous 'Chairs' video, which likened the global social network to the household chair, as both 'are for people'.
