Sup Travellers?! I'm guessing that everyone of you should know who Mark Zuckerberg is. If you don't know who he is then I urge you to delete your Facebook account and remove yourself from Facebook . Anyway, according to some reports from Quartz, Mark Zuckerberg's salary is now lower than yours. Even if you don't have a salary, your salary is still higher than Zuckie's. It's true.


A Facebook filing recently released said that Zuckerberg will get a salary of US$1.00 this year and forgo any bonuses. Yes you read that right, US$1.00. However, Mark Zuckerberg isn't sweating over his poor salary. Zuckerberg already has a shiz load of money in the bank already from stock sales. He made about US$2.3 billion last year.

                    -->

Zuckerberg exercised 60 million options at the time, but then sold half of that stock to cover the resulting US$1 billion tax bill. Zuckerberg made a base salary of about US$500,000 last year and got another US$266,000 in bonuses. His zipping around on company planes cost another US$1.2 million or so. Facebook shares, incidentally, have yet to close above the US$38 IPO price. But that's still a lot better than the price of 6 cents that Zuckerberg paid less than a decade ago.

So even though Mark Zuckerberg's salary is lower than yours, he's still living that lavish life. Zuckie has got no worries, he can afford a US$1.00 salary. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed
