Facebook Founder Changes Status To Married
Facebook's co-founder Mark Zuckerberg has married his longtime girlfriend Priscilla Chan, announcing the wedding through a status update on the social networking site.
Tens of thousands of people "liked" his status change, which was accompanied by a photo of the couple in wedding attire.
The couple tied the knot in a small ceremony at his Palo Alto, California home.
Fewer than 100 guests, who all thought they were there to celebrate Miss Chan's graduation from medical school, attended the wedding.
A company spokeswoman said Mr Zuckerberg designed the ring, which features "a very simple ruby".
Miss Chan also updated her Facebook page. "Married Mark Zuckerberg," she wrote.
The couple met at Harvard, where Mr Zuckerberg co-founded Facebook in a university dormitory eight years ago.
The wedding capped a busy week for the 28-year-old after the social networking site, of which he is also chief executive, was floated on the Nasdaq stock exchange.
Even after the initial public offering on Friday, Mr Zuckerberg remains Facebook's single largest shareholder, with 503.6 million shares. And he controls the company with 56% of its voting stock.

Well she must be able to see into the future, because she's been with him long before there was any money. Typical comment from people on here, though. Well done for being the first.
If she was with him from the start when he had nothing that's true love. Plus if she wasta member of his team she will be wealthy in her own right. Good luck. Hope she hates time line which is ruining facebook right now
Hats off to them, and hats off to that man, what a brilliant acheivment, to think that if he sold his remaining stock he would be prob be the richest man in the world, in only 8 years. The things that dreams are made of!

Congrats and all the luck in the world for the future :o)
Congratulations Mr & Mrs Zuckerberg! Mark, I think you're punching above your weight, but I'm sure your bank balance more than compensates for your 'gingerness'. I hope you got your new wife to sign a prenuptial agreement, if not, I will expect a divorce within 5yrs and a nice little earner for Priscilla!
he was just lucky with the facebook thing and with the fit piece, i should be living with her in his mansion and he should be living in this dump with my fat wife, but good luck to him. i'm not bitter.
