Is India the reason why we all have Facebook today?
Facebook, the reason behind how you sometimes waste your time when you should be studying, trending of memes, GIFs and communicating with friends or relatives living in another city or sometimes, totally in some other corner of the world. Founded by Mark Zuckerberg, along with Eduardo Saverin,Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes in 2004, this social media website has the highest amount of online buzz created by people from all around the globe. According to 2017 reports, there are 20,658 people employed for operating Facebook.
Basically these 20,000+ know exactly who you are stalking, what you are posting and they can block you from using the social media handle for like a week or more or less for a month if they find your content undesirable, vulgar or whatever.
For setting up a business, a person always needs some kind of motivation and there is always a backbone of that business. As for Facebook, this internet business’s back bone is Mark Zuckerberg. Now you must be wondering what exactly motivates him to start Facebook and did even know at that time that Facebook would be one of the most frequently used social media website for people of all age groups?
India! Yes, India motivated Zuckerberg to start Facebook. No kidding! Union Minister Piyush Goyal while speaking at an event recently attributed the foundation of Facebook to Mark Zuckerberg’s spiritual journey in India. We all know how spirituality, rituals, etc. have a great impact on the development of India’s cultures and traditions. Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg came up with the social networking site after meeting a spiritual guru in India.
According to Times Of India, Goyal said “Zuckerberg had not completed his study at Harvard University but when he visited Neem Karoli Baba in India, he acquired knowledge and a unique point of view to see the world differently. There was power of spirituality behind it. Only after that he did such a big thing (Facebook)”.
Goyal also claims that the most popular and celebrated tech-company, Apple was launched because Steve Jobs took spiritual lessons in India.
