Mark Zuckerberg’s College Website Sells for $30,000

FaceMash.com, the domain that was once host to a Facebook prototype Mark Zuckerberg built in his Harvard dorm room one October night in 2003, has sold for $30,201 on auction site Flippa.

The domain once housed a Harvard version of Hot or Not, which placed photos of various university women next to one another and asked visitors to select which one was more attractive. Facemash reportedly attracted 450 visitors and generated 22,000 page views in its first evening; it was pulled down by Harvard several days later.

The auction was first posted on October 5, just days before the movie The Social Network — which features both the site and its original owner — hit theaters in the U.S.

Flippa General Manager Dave Slutzkin confirmed in a statement that the winner of the auction was neither an employee of Facebook nor of Sony Pictures, which owns facemash.net.
