What Made Him Haute: Mark Zuckerberg is the genius who invented Facebook in a Harvard dorm room in 2004 and became the youngest Forbes billionaire in 2008 after Microsoft bought a stake, valuing it at $15 billion.

What Makes Him Haute Now: Having already introduced Download your Information, a way to save Facebook information in one compressed zip file, and a new dashboard feature, which allows users to track of which third-party apps are garnering your personal information, Zuckerberg has announced a feature to solve “the biggest problem in social networking,” according to the CEO. The third new feature, called “groups,” allows people to form small circles of friends on the site and communicate only with those specific friends. Haute Living likes this.
