fact that Facebook is a phenomenon world over is beyond debate. The
social networking website that changed for ever the way people
socialised and connected with others was conceptualised and
co-founded by the American
computer prodigy Mark Zuckerberg. Mark, while at Harvard University,
in 2004 found Facebook with his roommates and college mates Eduardo
Saverin, Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes. Zuckerberg was named Time
`Person Of The Year' in the year 2010. With an estimated personal
wealth of over $17 billion, he is made to the list of youngest
billionaires in the world. Today, Facebook has over 845 million
active users from countries and ethnicities all across the world.
People of all ages and classes, whether technology-savvy or new
users, have got hooked to it.
week, Facebook filed for an initial public offering (IPO) that could
value it between $75 billion and $100 billion, which could make it
one of the biggest US stock-market débuts of all time. The company
hopes to raise as much as $10 billion once the company's shares go
public. The company's latest financial results also show that it
raked up a $1 billion profit last year out of $3.71 billion in
revenue. Facebook Inc. makes 85% of its revenue from advertising,
while the rest is contributed by social gaming and miscellaneous
far, so good, rather revolutionary! The going has been great for Mark
Zuckerberg, and people do respect him for making the social
networking phenomenon a reality and a revolution. But will the
Facebook Inc.'s IPO live up to the hype that surrounds it, and how
will it affect Zuckerberg's personal fortune and future? Ganesha

during the first quarter of 2004. Saturn is the Yoga-karaka planet,
whereas Mercury signifies the 2nd
House of wealth and 11th
House of gains. These planetary positions can be held responsible for
Mark's capability to launch Facebook from his Harvard dormitory

Dasha cycle during the middle of 2007. Saturn is the Yoga-karaka
planet, and Venus is the ascendant Lord (in Surya Kundali). These
planetary forces helped him create the Facebook platform, from which
developers could launch social applications within Facebook.
Rahu is transiting in the zodiac sign Scorpio over Zuckerberg's natal
Ketu, while Ketu is simultaneously transiting over Natal Rahu. This
is not a favourable indication.
As per the Surya Kundali, the 7th
House signifies the relations of a company with third parties by the
way of agreements, contracts, trade activities, competition etc.
Also, besides effecting the overall growth and activities of a firm,
House influences the company's professional ability to handle complex
issues. Hence, it may be noted that the aforementioned Rahu-Ketu
transits could disturb Facebook's overall performance.
mighty planet Saturn plays a vital role in Mark Zuckerberg's natal
chart and hence his life. That is why whenever Saturn changes its
sign, a positive or a negative event may occur in Zuckerberg's life.
Ganesha observes that the transiting Saturn's influence over natal
Moon through the 6th
House of Zuckerberg's chart indicates a challenging phase in his
the whole, Ganesha notes that the year 2013 may bring a turning point
in Zuckerberg's life and fortunes. On a general level, in 2013,
Saturn and Rahu, both of which are negative planets, are set to
transit through the zodiac sign Libra. In Mark Zuckerberg's specific
case, it is worth mentioning that Saturn, Mars and Moon, three major
planets, are already posited in the zodiac sign Libra in his natal
chart. Thus, Ganesha foresees a possibility of something major
happening in his life, due to this general planetary activity.
the influence of transiting Jupiter over natal Sun through the 1st
House seems highly favourable as far as his business expansion plans
are concerned. Financial and property gains through hard work may
also be expected, says Ganesha.
