Facebook Spends More Than USD22m On Zuckerberg’s Safety

Facebook Spends More Than USD22m On Zuckerberg’s Safety

Mark Zukerberg, Facebook CEO

 

 

About $20m went towards security for Mark Zuckerberg and his family, up from about $9m the prior year.

 

Facebook more than doubled the money it spent on Chief Executive Officer, Mark Zuckerberg’s  security in 2018 to $22.6m, a regulatory filing showed on Friday.

 

Zuckerberg has drawn a base salary of $1 for the past three years, and his "other" compensation was listed at $22.6m, most of which was for his personal security.

 

Nearly $20m went towards security for Zuckerberg and his family, up from about $9m the year prior. Zuckerberg also received $2.6m for personal use of private jets, which the company said was part of his overall security programme.

 

Facebook has in the past few years faced public outcry over its role in Russia's alleged influence on the 2016 United States presidential election and has come under fire following revelations that Cambridge Analytica obtained personal data from millions of Facebook profiles without consent. 

 

Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg took home $23.7m in 2018 compared with $25.2m last year.

 

Separately, Facebook said Netflix Chief Executive Officer Reed Hastings would vacate his seat on the social media company's board and not be nominated for re-election.

 

Hastings' departure comes as the Menlo Park-based company beefs up its push into videos. Hastings has served on Facebook's board since 2011.

 

The company also said it would nominate PayPal's senior vice president of core markets, Peggy Alford, to its board in place of University of North Carolina President Emeritus Erskine Bowles, who will also not be renominated.

    We have the likes of nkiru onyejeocha who kept enjoying our democracy dividends, and using our money to buy praises to her name in the line buying wrapper and rice for her party faithfuls, I thought she boast of attracting federal government attention to her people or is that one part of her political propaganda. Let her come ooo its time to give back to her people.
