Writing on his own Facebook fan page, Mark Zuckerberg today proposed that he forsake all riches for social good. Uh, sure. Naturally, such a declaration did not really come from the world's youngest billionaire; Zuckerberg just got hacked.
The message, apparently posted under the Facebook CEO's own account ID (see image below), read,
Let the hacking begin: If facebook needs money, instead of going to the banks, why doesn't Facebook let its users invest in Facebook in a social way? Why not transform Facebook into a ‘social business' the way Nobel Price winner Muhammad Yunus described it? http://bit.ly/fs6rT3 What do you think? #hackercup2011
Now, says TechCrunch, the fan page has been deleted. Which makes sense; Zuckerberg lives modestly and has had his commendable philanthropic moments, but his investors include a Russian oligarch, Goldman Sachs, and plenty of venture capitalists. They're not about to give up their dividends and commit all future profits to social causes, as the hacker-cum-Zuckerberg proposed.
