  • The Origin of Facebook

    (Continued)

    Then called "thefacebook.com," the site was an instant hit.Mark Then, six years later, the site become one of the biggest web sites in the world, visited by 400 million people a month. The controversy surrounding Facebook began quickly. A week after he launched the site in 2004, Mark was accused by three Harvard seniors of having stolen the idea from them. This allegation soon bloomed into a full-fledged lawsuit, as a competing company founded by the Harvard seniors sued Mark and Facebook for theft and fraud, starting a legal odyssey that continues to this day.


    New information uncovered by Silicon Alley Insider suggests that some of the complaints against Mark Zuckerberg are valid. It also suggested that, on at least one occasion in 2004, Mark used private login data taken from Facebook's servers to break into Facebook members' private email accounts and read their emails--at best, a gross misuse of private information. Lastly, it suggests that Mark hacked into the competing company's systems and changed some user information with the aim of making the site less useful.


    The primary dispute around Facebook's origins centered around whether Mark had entered into an "agreement" with the Harvard seniors, Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss and a classmate named Divya Narendra, to develop a similar web site for them -- and then, instead, stalled their project while taking their idea and building his own.


    The litigation never went particularly well for the Winklevosses. In 2007, Massachusetts Judge Douglas P. Woodlock called their allegations "tissue thin." Referring to the agreement that Mark had allegedly breached, Woodlock also wrote, "Dorm room chit-chat does not make a contract." A year later, the end finally seemed in sight: a judge ruled against Facebook's move to dismiss the case. Shortly thereafter, the parties agreed to settle.


    But then, a twist. After Facebook announced the settlement, but before the settlement was finalized, lawyers for the Winklevosses suggested that the hard drive from Mark Zuckerberg's computer at Harvard might contain evidence of Mark's fraud. Specifically, they suggested that the hard drive included some damning instant messages and emails. The judge in the case refused to look at the hard drive and instead deferred to another judge who went on to approve the settlement.


    But, naturally, the possibility that the hard drive contained additional evidence set inquiring minds wondering what those emails and IMs revealed. Specifically, it set inquiring minds wondering again whether Mark had, in fact, stolen the Winklevoss's idea, screwed them over, and then ridden off into the sunset with Facebook.


    Unfortunately, since the contents of Mark's hard drive had not been made public, no one had the answers. But now over the years interviews of more than a dozen sources familiar with aspects of this story -- including people involved in the founding year of the company have also reviewed what was believed to be some relevant IMs and emails from that period. Much of this information was never made public. None of it was confirmed or authenticated by Mark or the company. Based on the information obtained, it was believed that's how Facebook was founded.

  • The Origin of Instagram

    (Continued)

    Inc. profiled Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger's start-up, Instagram, as part of our 30 Under 30 in May of 2011. Fast-forward 11 months, and their company has grown from 4 employees and 4 million users to a dozen employees and more than 27 million users. After word of accepting a new $50 million round of funding last week, Instagram today announced it is being acquired by Facebook for a staggering sum of $1 billion. Here's the story of this once-little app's humble beginnings.


    Just after midnight on October 6, 2010, Kevin Systrom signed into his Apple App Store control panel. "Here we go," he thought. With a click, Instagram, the photo-sharing app he'd created with Mike Krieger, was open to the world. Beta users had been signing up for access for weeks, and now, with them all on board and posting photos, buzz was building fast.


    They weren't counting wrong. Systrom estimates that 30 percent of the duo's collective energy was spent keeping the server up in the first weeks of Instagram's life. Thank goodness they had friends in high places. Krieger says he placed a lot of calls to "life-lines, Who-Wants-to-be-a-Millionaire-style" in those first days, including to (fellow 30 Under 30 honoree) Adam D'Angelo of Quora.


    If you've marveled at the aesthetic quality of a friend's photo album lately, you can likely credit Instagram. The photo-sharing smart-phone application has been downloaded by four million people who use it to add stylistic filters, frames, and effects to photos, which can—by tapping one of 16 options—turn a straightforward snapshot of a housecat into what looks like a weathered Polaroid time-capsuled from 1977.


    Systrom, a Stanford graduate who worked on Google's Gmail and corporate development, spent his weekends building an app that allowed location-aware photo and note-sharing, dubbing it Burbn. That's how Systrom met Mike Krieger, Instagram's co-founder: Krieger was an enthusiastic early Burbn user. Despite that the pair didn't know each other, they had both participated in Stanford University's Mayfield Fellows program, which educates students in successful and failed start-ups, and gives them internships with an established company and a start-up of their choice.


    Burbn was pared down to photos only and dubbed Instagram. Today, it has more than $7 million in funding from Benchmark Capital, and the small company is coping with explosive growth in the app's user-base—up to more than four million—and scaling its mobile-social-networking components.


    "Our goal is to not just be a photo-sharing app, but to be the way you share your life when you're on the go," Systrom says. The duo, along with a customer service expert and another programmer—all four flannel-wearing 20-somethings—run a lean operation out of Twitter’s old office in San Francisco. "We're hoping some of the magic dust rubs off," he says. Yes, that’s four employees for a company with four million users. Systrom says there’s no plan to monetize the app currently, as his team is "focused solely on the product and establishing ourselves as the leader in the mobile space." He admits he’s considering lots of different revenue models, including adding premium services such as extra filters or "Pro" accounts, or incorporating a full-scale advertising platform.

  • The Origin of Linkedin

    (Continued)

    In February 2008, LinkedIn launched a mobile version of the site. In June 2008, Sequoia Capital, Greylock Partners, and other venture capital firms purchased a 5% stake in the company for $53 million, giving the company a post-money valuation of approximately $1 billion


    Hoffman, 41, started LinkedIn, the social networking site for professionals. Its 41 million members include people from more than 200 countries and executives from every Fortune 500 company.


    Hoffman, 41, started LinkedIn, the social networking site for professionals. Its 41 million members include people from more than 200 countries and executives from every Fortune 500 company.


    Hoffman founded LinkedIn in late 2002. In just six years, the Mountain View, Calif., company has become one of Silicon Valley's stalwarts, with 350 employees and a brand recognized throughout corporate America. Profitable since 2006, LinkedIn's management says, the company raised nearly $80 million from investors last year, valuing it at $1 billion.


    From the beginning, Hoffman, a Stanford graduate, understood the importance of building and leveraging his network. Beyond LinkedIn, the entrepreneur is also an active investor, advising and funding more than 60 Silicon Valley startups, including Facebook. In the early 1990s, after a stint studying philosophy at Oxford and planning an academic life, he changed course and returned to Silicon Valley. There, he immediately started tapping into his connections to pursue his dream of starting a software company.


    Hoffman recently sat down with CNNMoney.com to discuss his entrepreneurial journey. Below is an edited version of his story. It was the beginning of the online revolution, in 1993. This was when America Online was starting to drop floppy disks to everybody to try to get people online. Studying at Oxford, I realized I wanted to have a much broader relevance in people's lives. Because I had been at Stanford, I thought about starting a software company. Software reaches millions of people.


    I networked my way to a couple of different venture capitalists. They said, "Have you shipped software before? You're asking us to invest millions of dollars in your company. You've done this before, yes?" I said, "No, not really."And they said, "Go get a job first." So then I networked my way to a job at Apple (AAPL, Fortune 500). I found a really good opportunity through the roommate of a good friend of mine from Stanford. That's where my career started. I started with a checklist of all the things I needed to learn in order to do startups. The first step was pure software development. After Apple, I went to Fujitsu for product management and the business side. I watched the whole online market heating up. I really wanted to get out there and start creating new businesses, so I resigned my Fujitsu position in July 1997. In August I started my first company, Socialnet.

    The idea of Socialnet was that you have millions of people all publishing online, so what kind of applications can you build to connect them? Socialnet focused on online dating. It also had some activities like finding golf partners and roommates and that kind of stuff.

    We raised money from some very good venture capitalists. But the first time you do anything, you learn lots and lots of lessons. The lesson I learned was that, as much as you are building a really great product, you have to understand your product distribution strategy. How do you get to millions of users, and tens of millions? We had a bad model at Socialnet. We thought we were going to partner with newspapers, and that didn't work.

    While I was doing Socialnet, a close friend of mine from Stanford, Peter Thiel, had started a small hedge fund and met another guy named Max Levchin. [Thiel and Levchin went on to start PayPal, the online payment service.] When I decided to leave Socialnet to start another business, I went to Peter and he said, "No, don't do that yet. Come join us now. We're sitting on a powder keg. The rocket is about to start taking off."

    [Hoffman took up Thiel's offer and joined PayPal as an executive vice president in charge of business development.] While I was at PayPal, I saw how I was operating, how was I solving my problems. People had not solved the PayPal problem before. So I was looking for some people who had expertise in the banking industry, some in the regulatory industry, some in the Internet industry, some in the payment industry. You're piecing together pieces of information. That's what got me to my view of how the world of work was changing.

    The philosophy behind LinkedIn has not changed. If anything, it's gotten bigger. We're always about individual professionals doing business with their network. We want to get all of the world's professionals on LinkedIn. We should be relevant to professionals everywhere, and I think we are, but there are still people to go get active.

  • The Origin of Twitter

    (Continued)

    Twitter began as an idea that Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey (@Jack) had in 2006. Dorsey had originally imagined Twitter as an SMS-based communications platform. Groups of friends could keep tabs on what each other were doing based on their status updates. Like texting, but not.


    During a brainstorming session at the podcasting company Odeo. Jack Dorsey proposed this SMS based platform to Odeo's co-founder Evan Williams (@Ev). Evan, and his co-founder Biz Stone (@Biz) by extension, gave Jack the go-ahead to spend more time on the project and develop it further.


    In its early days, Twitter was referred to as "twttr". At the time, a popular trend, sometimes to gain domain name advantage, was to drop vowels in the name of their companies and services. Software developer Noah Glass (@Noah) is credited with coming up with the original name twttr as well as its final incarnation as Twitter.


    The litigation never went particularly well for the Winklevosses. In 2007, Massachusetts Judge Douglas P. Woodlock called their allegations "tissue thin." Referring to the agreement that Mark had allegedly breached, Woodlock also wrote, "Dorm room chit-chat does not make a contract." A year later, the end finally seemed in sight: a judge ruled against Facebook's move to dismiss the case. Shortly thereafter, the parties agreed to settle.


    To recap, some of the key early players in Twitter's history are Jack Dorsey, Noah Glass, Biz Stone and Evan Williams. Many would agree that's also the appropriate order of involvement.


    The First Tweet

    Jack sent the first message on Twitter on March 21, 2006, 9:50pm. It read, "just setting up my twttr". During the development of Twitter, team members would often rack up hundreds of dollars in SMS charges to their personal phone bills. While the initial concept of Twitter was being tested at Odeo, the company was going through a rough patch. Faced with the brutal reality that Apple had just released its own podcasting platform which essentially killed Odeo's business model, the founders decided to buy their company back from the investors.


    Jack Dorsey, Biz Stone, Evan Williams and other members of Odeo staff facilitated the buyback. By doing this, they acquired the rights to the Twitter platform. There is some controversy surrounding how this all took place. It's questionable whether Odeo investors knew the full scope of the Twitter platform. Also, key members of the Twitter development team were not brought on to the new company, most notably, Noah Glass. As a formality, Obvious Corporation (@obviouscorp) was created after the investor buyback of Odeo in order to house Twitter.
