  • FILE MAY 3 2017- According to reports Facebook has declared first-quarter earnings of $8 billion surpassing revenue expectations. The social media company attributed their Q1 earnings to an increase in users and ad revenue. SAN JOSE CA- APRIL 18

One of Harvard's most famous dropouts just shared the moment he was accepted into college.

"Yay, I got accepted", was what the teen Mark Zuckerberg said after learning he got into the prestigious university Harvard.

Ahead of his commencement speech at his alma mater on 25 May, the billionaire posted a home video of the moment he clicked open his acceptance email, filmed by his dad. He seems nervous before he reads the email and asks his dad to put the camera away for a second.

Earlier in March, Zuckerberg and Bill Gates, also a drop-out from Harvard, got together for a promotional video for the college.

Now, with a reaction that lukewarm, anyone would assume that it was sarcastic and as did Mark's father, Edward Zuckerberg.

Edward is radiating with pride at his son's accomplishment.

Zuckerberg would go on to Harvard to study psychology and computer science. Mark Zuckerberg is finally getting his degree from Harvard, after famously dropping out in 2004 to focus on creating Facebook.
