While we live in a time where big weddings are, for some, a major importance, others are realizing that the greatest day in their life doesn't always need to be a ridiculously over-the-top and over-priced event. If we do take a moment to recall the reason behind marriage, it's historically based on love (or arranged situations in certain cultures), and not about competing to see who can spend more on their nuptials.
The smartphone has evolved into more than a high-tech gadget. People love their phones. Literally. Recently, a successful and highly educated adult told me that she "couldn't live" without her iPhone, which she then called "one of my best friends."
I've never thought to defend Mark Zuckerberg. Farmville made that almost impossible. But I'll do it this once. This has nothing to do with Facebook's horrid IPO or its lack of a plan to gin up revenue to support its bloated market capitalization. Instead, I must defend Zuckerberg against a small but vicious pack of hyenas who are accusing him of being a cheapskate.
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is in love. He finally married his longtime girlfriend Priscilla Chan. Many women probably envy her for marrying one of the greatest success stories of our time; her future holds nothing but happiness, wealth and prosperity. Meanwhile, others are concerned that she's doomed to a lifetime of inferiority since she clearly doesn't have as much wealth or visibility as her billionaire husband. So, which one will it be?
Mark Zuckerberg, 28, married his long-time girlfriend Priscilla Chan, 27, on Saturday. The couple invited under 100 friends and family members to celebrate what they thought was Chan's graduation from medical school. When the guests arrived, they were in for a romantic surprise!
Is Mark Zuckerberg planning on making it Facebook official by getting engaged to his longtime girlfriend Priscilla Chan? That's what the rumor is after his friend and fellow billionaire Bill Gates accidentally referred to Priscilla as the 26-year-old Facebook CEO's fiancée: "I didn't say to Mark, 'Give me all your money!' He was predisposed to do it and he came to me seeking advice," said Gates in an interview about his and Mark's philanthropic efforts. "His fiancée Priscilla thought about education and he gave money to Newark, New Jersey, and we did a co-grant so that some of our people who had some expertise in that field could help him out," he added.
By Vicky Sullivan of aspiring-socialite.com In the opening scene of the recent box office hit, The Social Network, the fictional Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg) insults girlfriend, Erica Albright (Rooney Mara,) by debasing her background and education. She then says, “Dating you is like dating a stair master.” And quickly dumps him.
Today, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg was named TIME "Person of the Year 2010." If the people at TIME were looking for a game-changer to receive this honor, they found the right man. Zuckerberg has undoubtedly altered the way more than half a billion people connect. He has changed our generation forever, and he definitely deserves the this distinction. However, we would also like to personally note Mark for yet another feat. He's managed to make our dating lives that much more complicated.
The results are in: John Stewart is The Most Influential Man In The World. Yes, yes. We'd have to agree. But what about the others? According to AskMen's 2010 reader survey results, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Jobs, Kanye West, Drew Brees, James Franco, Elon Musk Jose Mourinho, and Graydon Carter top out the list of modern manly man in 2010. Their standards? Who has made the biggest impact, and ultimately, shaped what it means to be a man? That's all well and good, but we decided to re-rank the men based on "The Dateable Index," in other words, the top 49 men we are lusting after this year. But for us, the question is more simple: Who would you rather? In that sense, YourTango has created "The Datability Index." Here, we've evaluated the eligible (or, um, eligible-in-our-minds) fellows on their pretty faces, their current career power, whether or not they've managed to lock down a lovely woman whom we envy, and how often we see them photographed holding fat, adorable babies. The verdict is the AskMen Top 49 Most Influential Men of 2010, in the appropriate order—who would you do order, obviously.
Facebook has existed as the Wild West for far too long. It's time that someone codify what is and is not OK to do with your fellow human beings on Mark Zuckerberg's creation (collaboration). Social media needs to follow rules in the same way that society needs to follow certain protocols of etiquette, otherwise it's going to be friggin' anarchy. Here are those rules.
