Original Profile ID:
http://www.facebook.com /profile.php?id=10 (IDs 8 and 9 do not exist)

How he knew about Facebook: *While Laverdet has one of the earliest IDs, it’s not certain that he was one of the first 20 to sign up for the site.  Some engineers who worked at Facebook saw some early IDs were open and snagged them for themselves.

Since Laverdet didn’t go to Harvard, that’s presumably what happened here. Laverdet is, however, friends with early Facebookers Chris Putnam, Soleio Cuervo, Kang-Xing Jin, Chris Hughes, Mark Zuckerberg, and his buddies Adam D’Angelo and Aaron Sittig.

Putnam and Marcel both got jobs at Facebook by creating hacks and pranks on the social site. These hacks caught the attention of cofounder Dustin Moskovitz, who contacted Putnam. The two kept in touch and when Putnam moved to Silicon Valley, Moskovitz offered him an interview at Facebook. When Putnam was hired, he encouraged Marcel to join the company too.

*He did not go to Harvard as originally stated. He went to LSU.
