Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg gave a commencement speech to a bunch of 8th graders at the Belle Haven Community School in Menlo Park, California this week. And, he had some interesting advice for the soon-to-be high schoolers.
He told the graduating class of 2011 to focus on building great relationships, to study hard, do what you love, and um, don't take any shortcuts.
Hmm, seems like some strange advice coming from a guy who famously (allegedly) screwed over his friend to start the multi-billion dollar company.
Guess he was trying to tell the kids to pay attention to his words and not his actions?
Very, very interesting. Oh well…at least these kids can always say that the founder of Facbeook spoke at their 8th grade graduation!
Congratulations, class of 2011! Work hard and be nice to those around you and you can guarantee success! (Right, Mark??)
