A History of Facebook Scandals
On February 4, 2004, Zuckerberg launched a new website called “Thefacebook.” He named the site after the directories that were handed out to university students to aid them in getting to know one another better.
Six days later, he again got into trouble when Harvard seniors Cameron Winklevoss, Tyler Winklevoss and Divya Narendra accused him of stealing their ideas for an intended social network website called HarvardConnection and of using their ideas for TheFacebook.
Facebook has gone from a dorm-room at Harvard University to a company with over 2.2 billion users. As Facebook spreads around the globe, it creates positive and negative effects.
