In 2006, corporate giant Viacom offered to front $750 million to buy Facebook, and in 2007, Yahoo upped the price to a billion dollars for the company. 

Zuckerberg turned down the monies and accepted to offer only a piddly share in his company to Microsoft, at a whopping $240 million.

‘I’m CEO, Bitch!’ was indeed the fine print on the tech billionaire’s first installment of visiting cards. Whether it was intended to be a joke or sheer snobbery is an answer only Zuckerberg can give.

Mark and his wife Priscilla Chan live in the posh Palo Alto area of California. Their 5,617sq ft mansion sits on sizeable 17,000sqft  grounds, and is equipped with a saltwater pool, and five bed and baths. The house is estimated to have cost him $7 million, but looks like Zuckerberg was already hunting for greener pastures on his recent vacation to Hawai.

 

Rumour has it, the billionaire is eyeing multi-million dollar units in a luxurious development called Ala Moana in Honolulu. From $1.6 million for a house to penthouse suites in the $9 million range, it’ll be interesting to see what Mark picks.

Mark Zuckerberg and his wife tied the knot at their Palo Alto home last May. While Priscilla walked down the aisle in a $4,700 Claire Pettibone gown and $25,000 ruby and diamond rock on her finger, it was celebrity entertainer Billie Joe Armstrong from rock band Greenday that had the guests living it up that night

The couple followed up the wedding with a honeymoon in Italy—flying in on a private jet of course—where Mark footed the bill for a room at the uber luxurious Portrait Suites, priced over $1,000 per night (Rs 59,500 approx). 

 

P.S. Reportedly, Facebook financially settlements indicate the company spent as much as $700,000 flying Zuckerberg on private jets annually. Whoa!

And what is $1,000 a night in Italy when Zuckerberg would front the same to buy an exotic pet dog, eh? Beast, the couple’s four legged friend is a Puli (rare Hungarian Sheepdog), that can be found at select breeders for $800 and up.
