How was Facebook created is not a big secret and the journey of a Harvard dropout creating the biggest social media platform has been quite inspirational.

Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg posted a video online today that shows him as a teenager receiving an acceptance email to study at the prestigious Harvard University.

The 33-year-old is set to deliver a commencement speech at Harvard next week, and is expected to receive an honorary degree.

Now, with a reaction that lukewarm, anyone would assume that it was sarcastic and as did Mark's father, Edward Zuckerberg. The video went viral over the internet in no time with over 4 million views within 18 hours of upload.

It's slightly ironic that Zuckerberg will be returning to Harvard to speak to the graduating students as he never actually graduated from the Ivy League university himself. In one of the comments to a follower, he also said that his mother had predicted that he will drop out of college even before he began his graduation. "I bet them I'd get a degree", Zuckerberg writes. "Now I suppose the cycle is complete", he posted.

"Yay, I got accepted", he says quietly before giving a fist pump.
