Zuckerberg is easily the most famous of all those CEOs though too, fame plays a HUGE role.

I would hate this life....I bet he wishes all the time that he could go out like a normal person.

Pretty sure that includes multiple armored vehicles in a fleet, that's why they have these enormous costs. Plus 16 securities need their own rooms in 5 star hotels - Zuckerberg travels way more than most other US CEOs.

Various houses I only have one and I don't even like it that much

Why do people care how he spends his money?
k (1 year ago)
Nobody would care if he spent his own money. He's using investor money for security and to take private jets around the world.

Gotta protect the lizard king.
Merle Patterson (1 year ago)
My cost was a whopping $0.00
Regis Parris (1 year ago)
It costs so much because he doesn't want people to know he's a lizard
Francisco Miranda (1 year ago)
Probably 1M is like $20 for us. He has tons (literally) of money.

just upgrade him with a brand new PSU, capable of powering high-powered red diode eye lazers

Z U C C is as insecure as his data protection policy.
Amir (1 year ago)
Dang This guy's a big shot, huh
Zachary Routhier (1 year ago)
This is a joke I would imagine that if a CEO decides pays out of pocket then they get paid by the company to provide their own protection.
Peter Downey (1 year ago)
If my neighbour's security team took up all the parking spaces, I'd shove exhaust whistles up the exhaust pipes of all of the offending cars.

Who cares, it's a private company? They can spend however much they want on what they want.
epiclolyay (1 year ago)
Yes, it is a private company, funded by the public. Just like every other bloody business on the planet.
SOLAREKUS (1 year ago)
Chicken Man They are a publicly traded company, his security paid for by investors and shareholders.

If he has soo much money.. why would be not oay for his security. Its not ur money.. stop judging
Jed Tan (1 year ago)
Who's that girl on the white top?
Reflexivernunft (1 year ago)
I don't know what these comments are. If you get serious threats, that someone will murder you and your family you too would double the expenses for security

One time Tim Cook walked into an apple store in NYC and no one knew who he was. Like who's Tim Cook?
The Adanator (1 year ago)
Because this is what the people care about knowing somehow

Halo mark🙋🏻‍♂️🥂
Adam Mundorf (1 year ago)
The reason is because Zuckerberg travels. All the other people they listed with the exception of Ellison I don't think travel much. Ellison might travel but he has private islands and huge compounds.

Alot of guns

That's still only 1 ten thousandth of his wealth
Jerome Rockefeller (1 year ago)
Mark Zuckerberg is a young CEO and he has the potential to do more things than these old/decrepit CEOs. I think that this is an unfair comparison to Mark.
Mark Hunt (1 year ago)
Lotta haters out there..
KGD (1 year ago)
If the Russians and Chinese want to take him down he is good as dead . His private security staff are no match for intelligence forces of sovereignty states .

Conscience not clear. Hence costly
Francis Muiruri (1 year ago)
His company paid what is the big deal?
Paul Pinto (1 year ago)
Bcoz that's public money since they've bought shares of the company
upacarasamadhi (1 year ago)
7m per year for security..lmao
Ruben (1 year ago)
Theres a dude who installed a multi million dollar missle defence system in his yatch because hes so paranoid. If you got that kind of money it doesnt matter anyways.
Gon Freecss (1 year ago)
upacarasamadhi He’s a multi billionaire that’s chump change to him, it is a little excessive though.
Rajat Bansal (1 year ago)
lmfao 7 million is nothing for zuckeberg !!
btw3006 (1 year ago)
Rajat Bansal I’m pretty sure that all the shareholders are fine with Zuckerberg doing this, when the stock is up about 540% in five years, even after this drop.
Rajat Bansal (1 year ago)
Anass Kadmiri I mean worst case he can give that money back yeah bad for investors but while doing that I don't think he even realised that 7 mill from company account is a big deal . He must have been like 7 mill. no biggie or something .
Lucas Andler (1 year ago)
Boned You know that’s not how it works when you take a company public...there are shareholders. It’s no longer solely his company. Zuckerberg may have the large majority of equity in the company but Shareholders/the company shouldn’t have to pay for his plane and personal security when he’s worth billions...
Alex Smith (1 year ago)
its not a private company, its a public company, it has shareholders. Zuckerberg owns less than 28% of Facebook shares, please educate yourself so you don't look incredibly stupid.
Boned You (1 year ago)
Anass Kadmiri His company his money.
bin boy (1 year ago)
Now does he living simple life ha.
Jose Ochoa (1 year ago)
Crazy thing is he is super comfortable and that money is nothing to him

It is a bit of a strange phenomenon to be living in the free world yet need so much security.
Bobby (1 year ago)
It's because we live a a free world that they need security.

Gucci Mane (1 year ago)
Cj Cooper yea anybody could be ‘rich and famous’ but what Adam is saying is why does one need so much security in a FREE world? free as in you have he ability to walk outside and breath air
The Truthseeker47 (1 year ago)
We are all goyems to him and he spent 7.5 million of investors' money to protect himself from us.
meangirlbecca (1 year ago)
That's okay.... at least it's their own or company's money, not taxpayers'. Also, it makes sense because they are all well known public figures who are also very rich. You don't want to run the risk of being kidnapped or blackmailed or assaulted in public spaces...
Vyrkhan (7 days ago)
It's not that. Facebook is a powerful tool for politics, many countries would do everything to have some control over the social network. Trump campaign won a large support thanks to the targeted ads his campaign paid on Facebook, now imagine if you don't have to play 'fair' to collect votes through the social network. You could pretty much manipulate people by showing them Pro republican/democratic posts every day, until they change their politics preference. Facebook with 2 billion monthly users is the most powerful weapon for democracies. Not even the CEO of Lockhead Martin needs that amount of protection.
LOL No (1 year ago)
7.3 mil is not a lot compared to his billions in revenue.
psumiz (1 year ago)
At least hes creating jobs....
D. J. (1 year ago)
But he hate's guns.
Phil Tulxjen (1 year ago)
what this ugly babyface did to the land owners in Hawaii showed how cold his heart is yet like in so many other instances, he only proves that he's guilty of theft. Each time he smiles, he reminds me of the baby in Mel Gibson's movie "The passion of Christ".

Zuckerberg is such a pathetic coward. He'd probably faint if you shook a fist.
Anon Anon (1 year ago)
Peter Downey Because, it's a different era now. The world is changing. Having large muscles is basically useless. Being smart is. The smartest comes up at the top of the food chain, the top of the hierarchy, the kings.
