Facebook Founder Zuckerberg Makes 'The Simpsons' Cameo

Facebook CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg has joined the ranks of tech moguls like Apple CEO Steve Jobs and Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates in making a cameo in the popular US animated TV series, The Simpsons.

In the episode titled 'Loan-A-Lisa', Nelson starts a bike rental business and decides to drop out of school after enjoying some initial success. Lisa then takes Nelson to an 'Entrepreneur Expo', where she tries to explain to him that it is important to complete one's education.

Mark Zuckerberg makes an appearance towards the end, accompanied by Bill Gates and Richard Branson, where he says: “I'll get the best kind of degree, honorary.”

Zuckerberg developed Facebook from his Harvard dorm along with help from his room mates, developing the platform into the largest social network in the world with more than 500 million users, and making Zuckerberg a billionaire.

The Social Network, the movie loosely based on how Zuckerberg came to own Facebook paints a very disturbing picture of the CEO, who, according to the movie, back-stabbed his friends in order to become a billionaire. The movie has garnered critical acclaim the world over.
