作为“毕业生”,扎克伯格还在哈佛的毕业典礼上发表了演讲,一起来看看吧。

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg features in a long line of university dropouts who became millionaires after founding technology companies - Bill Gates and Steve Jobs among them.

脸书创始人马克 扎克伯格是辍学创办科技公司并成为百万富翁的成功人士之一,比尔 盖茨和史蒂夫 乔布斯也是他的同道中人。

But 12 years after leaving Harvard to work on Facebook full time, he has returned to pick up his degree.

然而,在离开哈佛全职从事脸书工作12年后,扎克伯格又重回母校取得学位。

Zuckerberg founded what was then called "The Facebook" in his college dormitory in 2004. The service was at first limited only to Harvard students before expanding to other Ivy League universities.

2004年,扎克伯格在大学宿舍里创办了“脸书”(当时叫The Facebook)。“脸书”服务最初只对哈佛学生开放,后来又扩展到其他常春藤大学。

He delivered the university's commencement address later on Thursday. After receiving the honour, he posted a photo of him with his parents Edward and Karen Zuckerberg.

本周四他在哈佛大学发表毕业演讲。在获得学位后他上传了一张和父亲爱德华、母亲卡伦的合照。

Today @HarvardAlumni Mark Zuckerberg fulfills his parents dream with a Harvard degree.

今天 @哈佛校友 马克 扎克伯格用一个哈佛学位圆了他父母的梦。

——哈尔 布尔斯泰恩,医学博士(@DrHBurstein),2017年5月25日

During his remarks on Thursday, Mr Zuckerberg told graduates that "we live in an unstable time".

在他的演讲中,扎克伯格对毕业生表示,“我们生活在一个不稳定的时代”。

With his wife, Priscilla, in the audience, he pointed to the dormitory where he launched Facebook, and remarked that meeting her there was the best thing to happen to him at the university.

演讲时,他的妻子普莉希拉就在观众席,他指着当初创立脸书的寝室说,在那里遇到普莉希拉是他在哈佛期间发生的最美好的事。

Zuckerberg returned to the room where he built Facebook along with his co-founders, Dustin Moskovitz, Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum and Chris Hughes.

扎克伯格回到了他和联合创始人达斯汀 莫斯科维茨、爱德华多 萨维林、安德鲁 麦科克伦和克里斯 休斯一起创建脸书网站的寝室。

Even after the company moved its headquarters to California, Zuckerberg continued to be enrolled at Harvard until he dropped out in November 2005. "I'm not coming back" he told the university paper The Crimson.

即便在公司总部搬到加州之后,哈佛仍然保留扎克伯格的学生资格,直到他2005年11月辍学。他告诉哈佛校报《深红报》说:“我不会回去了。”

His honorary degree comes 12 years later, a little quicker than it took Bill Gates, another famous Harvard dropout to get his. Gates, who left to found Microsoft in 1975, did not receive his honorary degree until 2007.

12年后,扎克伯格拿到了荣誉学位,跟比尔 盖茨相比早了几年,比尔 盖茨也是著名的哈佛辍学生,他1975年离开哈佛创办微软公司,直到2007年才拿到荣誉学位。

Last week, Zuckerberg shared a video of him finding out he had been accepted into Harvard.

上周,扎克伯格还分享了当年自己得知被哈佛大学录取时的视频。
