Made $30,000
The FaceMash.com web address that landed Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in trouble as a Harvard University student has been flogged for more than $30,000.

Zuckerberg was a Harvard student in 2003 when he made a FaceMash.com website at which people could compare pictures of coeds at the college and rate which was "hotter". The site was shut down by Harvard administrators unhappy with the stunt. Zuckerberg dropped out of Harvard and started Facebook the next year.

FaceMash was the inspiration for Facebook social notworking site and was memorialised in "The Social Network" film about the birth of Facebook.The buyer of web address remained secret, but Flippa went on record saying that it wasn't anyone from Facebook or Sony Pictures, which made "The Social Network" flick.
