Zuckerberg on Thursday received an honorary doctor of laws degree from Harvard and even addressed the 2017 commencement.

In his speech he emphasized on the importance of changing the world for the better.

“I'm here to tell you finding your purpose isn't enough.

'The challenge for our generation is creating a world where everyone has a sense of purpose.'

He fought back tears at the end of the speech, when he talked about a young, undocumented student who showed a 'greater sense of purpose'

Zuckerberg added that he is from the same generation as the new graduates and the so-called Millennials who will be facing a challenge of inequality, disillusionment and a loss of jobs to automation.

"It's our generation's turn to build great things," he said.

"Let's do big things .. not just to create progress but to create purpose."

He later took to Facebook (well his creation) where he posted a photo and a caption addressed to his mom.

"Mom, I always told you I'd come back and get my degree," read the caption of a picture he posted on Facebook of him posing with his honorary diploma and his parents.

The 33-year-old billionaire is now the youngest commencement speaker in Harvard's history.

While at Harvard he visited his old dorm room and even shoot a short film while there.

On February 4, 2004, Zuckerberg launched 'Thefacebook' from the laptop on his dorm room desk.

Mark left Harvard in May 2004 and vowed never to return to Harvard to work on his company.

Facebook -- now one of the biggest tech firms, with nearly two billion members worldwide -- grew out of a website he created on campus.

"There is something wrong with our system when I can leave here and make billions of dollars in 10 years while millions of students can't even afford to pay off their loans, let alone start a business."
