The founder and CEO of social network giant Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg turned 32 on Sunday and Twitter was flooded with greetings – even though there is no verified account of Zuckerberg on the social media micro-blogging site. Internet entrepreneur Zuckerberg is quite popular across the world, which is evident from the 90,005,865 followers on his FB page and many wished him on his special day. While some gave him titles like “father of Facebook” to “father of social media”, others thanked him for connecting the world by setting up the platform.
Indians were not far behind in extending ‘happy birthday’ greetings either and many people thanked him for giving those on the Net the “gift of Facebook”. India is one big market for Zuckerberg, and the internet giant that he controls has just expanded the reach of its Facebook Express Wi-Fi project to help more people get online. Together with Bharti Airtel, they will launch 20,000 more hotspots. The CEO had shared this on his Facebook page saying with the service, anyone can run an Express Wi-Fi hotspot that means entrepreneurs across the country can offer their communities faster and more affordable internet. Some people on the social media posted their unique takes on the day with one Twitter user even making a sketch of him.
Take a look how people wished Zuckerberg:
