    How do you Facebook lovers feel about your support making Mark Zuckerberg a $44.6 billionaire.

    He is now touting that he will be even wealthiest in the coming years.
    Everyone keeps whining about unequal distribution of wealth, and now they have created their own. Should people profit from their business, of course. But what about how much taxes they can avoid while doing it. The average person has no real way to do what is available to the rich.
    Facebook has no real worth, and yet the people open their kimono to reveal whatever is left of the their personal privacy. This is especially true of the millenniums, who seem to be the least brightest of recent new generations.

    I feel OK about the money portion of this question. When Zuckerberg's daughter was born, he announced that he would give 99% of his Facebook stock to charity. He's one of the 138 billionaires signed up for the Giving Pledge, started by Bill Gates and Warren Buffet. Eventually, all that money is going to go toward doing good things for people who need help.

    Taxes are a separate issue. I feel that, regardless of what the final destination the money might be, the rich have an obligation to society to pay their fair share, which often isn't the case now. Mark Zuckerberg isn't responsible for our stupid tax laws, which allow the rich to hold on a larger percentage of their wealth.

    As for the stupidity of Facebook, I can honestly say it's been a useful tool for me. I post very little about my personal life there, but I do post my artwork, and interact with other artists of my ilk, who are spread all over the globe. When I had cancer surgery three years ago, Facebook is where my friends organized fundraising efforts, and checked in to see if I needed anything while I was recovering. It's actually where I met the friend to came to stay with me the first week I was out of the hospital. So, for every negative cliche you can throw out about Facebook and its users, I can probably lob back a benefit---but I tend not to be a user that posts pictures of cats, photos of my food, or selfies.

      Everything you said was correct Lisa. There is nothing I can see to have a negative feedback regarding Mark Zuckerberg's wealth. It did not just happen without him doing nothing. It is not his fault how society and money work as a system.

      It was his charity, and he still controls all the stock.
