Mark Zuckerberg 2017 Harvard Commencement Speech On Finding Purpose

Facebook CEO and Founder, Mark Zuckerberg addressed the Harvard graduates of 2017 with a remarkable and eye opening commencement speech about saving the environment, curing all diseases and what really drives Facebook. He is a powerful speaker and the raw emotion he spoke with gave everyone attending and watching the chills. Tearing up at one point, Zuckerberg became extremely passionate when he spoke about the importance of how the world needs purpose and how this generation has to create it.

He shared his thoughts and viewpoints to several other areas including immigration and the story of a young man with so much potential but yet is unable to go to college because he is not a US citizen. He furthered into some border line political conversations as well, regarding the rising cost of college education, the idea of a universal living wage, and the troubling effects of climate change.

Though he is the youngest ever to give a Harvard commencement speech, he wisely enlightened everyone on the changing world around us and how it’s time to adjust and find purpose by helping better the world around us by feeling more connected, building better online and offline communities, and creating equalities, to name a few big points. He also gave the young students some inspiration about his own journey and how finding purpose was what really helped him when he was struggling and failure was all around.



“I’m not here to give you the standard commencement about finding your purpose, we’re millennials. We try to do that instinctively. Instead, I’m here to tell you that finding your purpose isn’t enough. The challenge for our generation is to create a world where everyone has a sense of purpose.” – Mark Zuckerberg
