Zuckerberg is the chairman and chief executive of Facebook, Inc. Zuckerberg's personal wealth is estimated to be $9.4 billion as of 2012. Born and raised in New York state, Zuckerberg began writing software as a hobby in middle school, with help from his father and a tutor. In high school, he excelled in classic literature and fencing while studying at Phillips Exeter Academy. Zuckerberg later attended Harvard College, majoring in computer science and psychology.
