Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Meta, formerly known as Facebook, marked his 40th birthday on May 14 with a celebration that included friends, family, and a surprise guest. Zuckerberg shared glimpses of his birthday festivities on Instagram, showcasing a nostalgic journey through the places that shaped his early life and career.

In an Instagram post, Zuckerberg revealed that his wife, Priscilla, had recreated significant locations from his past, including his childhood bedroom where he first learned coding, the Harvard dorm where he launched Facebook, his first sparsely furnished apartment, and one of his earlier office spaces. The post included pictures of these recreated spaces, adding a personal touch to the celebration.

One of the remarkable moments captured in the photos was Zuckerberg posing with Microsoft’s former CEO, Bill Gates. Both Zuckerberg and Gates famously dropped out of Harvard to establish their respective tech giants, Meta (formerly Facebook) and Microsoft, shaping the modern tech landscape.

Among the recreated places was Pinocchio’s Pizzeria, where Zuckerberg mentioned he practically lived during his college years. He also shared a touching moment with his daughters, showing them the room where he grew up. 

Expressing gratitude for the global gathering at his birthday celebration, Zuckerberg mentioned in his post that people traveled from various parts of the world to join the festivities.

Zuckerberg’s wife, Priscilla Chan, also took to Instagram to wish him a happy birthday, mentioning that although Mark usually doesn’t prefer extravagant celebrations, this milestone birthday allowed for a memorable bash where friends and family humorously roasted him.

The celebration not only highlighted Zuckerberg’s personal milestones but also showcased the enduring friendship between tech titans and the journey of two Harvard dropouts who went on to lead some of the world’s largest and most influential tech companies.
