It turns out that privacy isn’t very high on Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg’s list of personal worries either. Zuckerberg is notorious for placing a low premium on the privacy of users of his wildly popular social networking site.
While you learn that he has a team of not one, not two, but sixteen personal bodyguards on duty around the clock to protect him and his family, even when they are at home, you could come to that conclusion, at least.
According to a recent article in The New York Post, Zuckerberg, his wife Priscilla Chan, and their daughter Maxima enjoy the top-notch protection. The article describes the very strict security measures that have been implemented at both of the entrepreneur’s California houses.
One in San Francisco has neighbors who complain about the space the security team takes up on the street, including two “excellent parking places” that are almost usually occupied by a handful of staff vehicles. An excerpt from one of their letters is provided below:
“We’ve spoken to the security guards, and they were cordial but ultimately have been instructed by their supervisors to not move the cars under any circumstances.”
It’s unclear whether Zuckerberg’s increased security is the result of him having a new baby to worry about, general anxiety brought on by his essentially private personality, specific threats or provocations made against him, or some combination of the three.
