The 33-year-old is set to deliver a commencement speech at Harvard next week, and is expected to receive an honorary degree. It was no different for Mark Zuckerberg's dad, Edward, who filmed his son's reaction to getting into Harvard in 2002.

Facebook CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg has uploaded a rare insight into his life before he became one of the wealthiest human beings on the planet.
Mark also touched on his family's thoughts on his college days after a commenter joked that he chose a "very roundabout way to avoid Harvard's core curriculum requirements".
"That was definitely not my plan", Zuckerberg replied. At the time, "my mom bet me I'd drop out and my younger sister bet me she'd finish college before me. Now I suppose the cycle is complete", he posted.
