No one in this world can say What is Facebook? because of it’s popularity. Facebook.com is created by Mark Zuckerberg. Before Mark created Facebook, he had done many projects. One of the projects created by Mark was called Synapse, the music app.
Synapse Media Player Creation:
Mark Zuckerberg attended his High School in Phillips Exeter Academy. At the last year of the School Career, the students of Phillips Exeter Academy were asked to submit their own projects. On the basis of quality of the project, the school evaluate the marks which were helpful to get admission in good colleges. Unfortunately, Mark didn’t got any projects. When he was discussing about his project with his friends, suddenly his computer stopped playing the songs on the playlists. On fact, We have to choose what songs can be present in the playlists manually. Mark didn’t liked this system. He got a sudden idea “Why not our computer creates the playlists of our favorite songs in its own”. Means when someone hears a song repeatedly, the computer will add the song automatically to the playlists. He decided to create a software, which plays our favorite songs and he also decided to make this software as his school project. That’s it. Mark started to write his program.
One of his school mate Adam D’Angelo joined with Mark Zuckerberg’s Synapse project. Finally, after they completed writing the program they released the app for free!
The software got 1000′s of downloads. They both became very popular in their school. This news reached like wildfire among the famous companies including Microsoft and AOL. They arose a question, How this children can make an advanced software? That’s all, they started asking Mark and Adam to work on their companies. Even they told “we will give you 2 million dollars for this software”, if they worked for their company for at least 3 years. Mark and Adam got struck. They thought a whole night. Afterwards, they said “We are not going to sell Synapse”. The Synapse remained free. It’s very popular among the music freaks.
Basically, Synapse works upon the concept of Artificial Intelligence. Still the Synapse available on the Cnet. Most of the Windows versions supports the Synapse excluding the windows 7 and 8. The current download of Synapse is 99,000+ . Nowadays, there were massive Music players which were better than Synapse, but on those days it’s something new and better. Later, Mark and Adam got bored in developing Synapse. So they discontinue developing Synapse.
