    “Mark Zuckerberg is quite a private person, despite owning the biggest social media companies in the world.
    But the billionaire [$121.6 billion USD] – who was recently seen announcing the move to change Facebook’s name to Meta – has a very lavish lifestyle.” https://www.the-sun.com/entertainment/3958444/facebook-mark-zuckerberg-inside-lavish-life/
    For example:
    “…Mark also owns a whopping 1,400 acres of Hawaii land – which is worth a whopping $116 million.
    The land, spanning most of Pila’a beach and Kahu’aina Plantation, includes a 6,100-square-foot house with a 16-car garage, offices and part of Mark’s $23 million security team’s headquarters.
    According to local paper, the Garden Island, Mark faced national outrage in 2017, when he filed quiet-title lawsuits to buy pockets of land – called kuleana parcels – within his estate.
    These landlocked patches of land were granted to native Hawaiian tenant farmers in 1850 and handed down through generations.
    Mark withdrew the lawsuits after public backlash, but he still spent another $45.3 million on 89 acres spanning at least 12 kuleana parcels.
    And in March this year, he bought another 600 acres of [Hawaiian] land for $53 million.”
