He possesses approximately 350 million Class A and B shares, all of which qualify for the dividend. Assuming Meta maintains its 50-cent quarterly dividend, Zuckerberg’s yearly income will surpass $690 million.

Mark Zuckerberg was observed commemorating the 20th anniversary of Facebook through his WhatsApp Channels. He posted a video in which he can be seen extinguishing candles on cakes shaped like the number 20.

Additionally, he shared a montage on Instagram that depicted his journey. The post served as a compilation of Facebook’s evolution from its inception as a social media platform for college students.

According to public records obtained by Wired, it has been reported that Zuckerberg is purportedly building an undisclosed dwelling in Hawaii, with an estimated value of $100 million. This clandestine residence is said to include a significant underground shelter, adding to its allure.

The sheer size of the estate, spanning approximately 1,400 acres, is truly remarkable. Furthermore, this expansive property will comprise more than a dozen structures, boasting an impressive count of 30 bedrooms and 30 bathrooms.

The mansion, located on the stunning Hawaiian island of Kauai, was emphasized in the report for its expansive bunker that covers an area of over 5,000 square feet. Notably, this bunker is equipped with its own self-sufficient power source.
