Harvard administrators did not see the humor and not only shut down the site, but threatened to expel Zuckerberg.Charges were dropped but Zuckerberg persisted and created a student directory, which featured basic info and a photograph.He said,well you answered me with a yes,so its your fault.
Writing a program called Face Mash, Zuckerberg intended the program to be a fun “Hot or Not” game, posting the pictures of two Harvard students and letting other students vote which was the more attractive.
Later the company opened to all Ivy League schools and by the end of the year, Facebook was admitting just about every college campus.
The company moved to its own headquarters in Palo Alto, California.
Harvard liked the idea and stated that they would “get around to it”.
Zuckerberg said he didn’t want to wait, that he could do it better and complete the site in about a week.
