|The Ironic Personality Of Facebook Ceo Mark Zuckerberg by Ojukwu24(m): 12:16pm On May 22, 2012|
Mark Zuckerberg in what seems to be a surprise move on Saturday 19th of May after taking Facebook public, got married to his longtime girlfriend Priscilla Chan.
The wedding was reportedly a surprise to most of the 100 guests, who were told they were attending a surprise graduation party for Priscilla; she graduated from medical school at the University of California, San Francisco last week. The couple, who had been dating for nine years, were college sweethearts at Harvard. The celebration was incredibly low key and food was served from their favorite local restaurants.
What amazes me however, is the life and personality of Mark. He is the CEO of a social networking site which boasts of over 900 million users, yet he has made tremendous progress in guarding his private life so closely from the ever- prying eye of the media. The last two weeks were quite momentous, yet only the things he wanted to be public knowledge were so. He turned 28 last Monday, the same day his longtime girlfriend, Chan graduated from medical school at the University of California, San Francisco. The rest of the week he was gearing up for one of the most-anticipated IPOs (Initial Public Offer) ever, which on Friday turned Zuckerberg's theoretical Facebook billions into real money — about $19 billion — officially making him one of the world's wealthiest individuals. And somehow, amid all of this activity, he and Chan managed to secretly plan their wedding, so that when 100 or so guests showed up at the couple's Palo Alto residence for Priscilla's supposedly ‘graduation ceremony’ on Saturday, they were treated to surprise nuptials.
Ordinarily, one would have expected the young billionaire to throw up an elaborate society wedding with numerous superstars and celebrities in attendance. One would have expected Mark to invite Music superstars such as Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, etc. and Hollywood stars to grace the occasion but none of that happened. The fact he dated a girl for nine years, says so much about the depth and content of his personality.
The timing of Zuckerberg’s marriage also raises questions. Consider these; “The timing makes good financial sense: "Congratulations to the happy couple — no doubt they married for love," says Deborah L. Jacobs at Forbes. But let's not be naive: They almost certainly "spent more time with lawyers and financial planners than with a wedding planner." Under California law, if Zuckerberg had married Chan before Friday's IPO, half of his Facebook billions would be hers if they got a divorce; now, it's all his. Meanwhile, they both get the tax benefits of marriage.”
They planned this around Chan, not Facebook: The wedding may seem like gilding the lily of an already bountiful week, says Marcus Wohlsen of The Associated Press, but "the seemingly well-coordinated timing was largely a coincidence," according to an unidentified guest "authorized to speak for the couple." Nobody knew when the IPO would happen, so the couple secretly set the date months ago to coincide with Chan's graduation from medical school.
What do you think? Is it all a coincidence or a well-crafted plan by Mark to protect his company and his wealth in the event of a divorce? If you are a Nigerian, then your guess is as good as mine.
