Watch Mark Zuckerberg find out he got accepted into Harvard

How was Facebook created is not a big secret and the journey of a Harvard dropout creating the biggest social media platform has been quite inspirational.

Now, with a reaction that lukewarm, anyone would assume that it was sarcastic and as did Mark's father, Edward Zuckerberg. Have a look at Mark Zuckerberg's Facebook post and video here:These moments of joy and success become all the more special as the young entrepreneur is about to receive an honorary degree by Harvard on this May 25. Almost 15 years after that, he will get his honorary degree at commencement next Thursday.

The video has been viewed 296,336 times and shared by 13,000 users.

Zuckerberg shared the throwback video that was captured about 15 years ago.

The video shows a young Zuckerberg sitting on his bunkbed, wearing plaid pajama bottoms and nervously opening an email that would confirm his admittance to Harvard. The 33-year-old will return to his one-time alma mater this summer to deliver the commencement address at the convocation ceremony. In one of the comments to a follower, he also said that his mother had predicted that he will drop out of college even before he began his graduation.

He initially tried to push the camera away before he celebrated with a quiet: "Yay, I got accepted". "I bet them I'd get a degree", Zuckerberg writes.
