He meets the most important of this world, and his work is accused of manipulating societies. No wonder Mark Zuckerberg needs expensive protection. Facebook revealed numbers.
Although the official salary of Mark Zuckerberg in the last three years is just a dollar, the boss “costs” Facebook much more. As much as USD 22.6 million made security assurance for the founder of the website. $ 2.6 million of this sum was earmarked for private jet flights – this way of traveling is also included in the security program.
It’s a huge increase. In 2017, Facebook allocated “only” 9 million dollars to Zuckerberg’s security.
The decision to increase costs should not come as a surprise. 2018 was not easy for Facebook. The Cambridge Analytic affair – related to the violation of users’ privacy – forced Mark Zuckerberg to testify before the US Senate. The consequences of that slip are still going on today, which results in the investigation of the American prosecutor’s office.
For this we got to know more details about the activities of Russian trolls on Facebook, there were also numerous accusations that the site can not handle fake news. The European Commission has said this explicitly.
It seems that the biggest failure of Facebook is that voices are growing louder and louder about the fact that the technological giant will cease to be unpunished.
“Facebook as a modern platform eludes archaic rules.Zuckerberg’s portal is the largest content provider, but it does not produce them, it only passes on, it makes private data about users, but does not sell them, only promotes them. but through it, you can influence democratic elections, but the control of the Facebook society is minimal.
No wonder that someone who is at the head of such an influential company must have advanced and expensive protection. On the other hand, spending on security is the best way to show how the image that Zuckerberg has created for years is not real.
His simple style – plain t-shirt and jeans – was supposed to show that he was an ordinary boy, not a stiff president of a giant corporation. If anyone believes this to date, the numbers show what is going on behind the scenes. And how serious is the operation of providing protection to Zuckerberg.
