On Friday, Mark Zuckerberg published an updated founder's letter for Facebook, his first since the company went public in 2012.

Facebook works hard to maintain Mark Zuckerberg's public image. Professional photographers take staged photographs, like these ones of him visiting a Facebook data centre, petting a calf and meeting with world leaders.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is once again going after his neighbours in his latest effort to ensure his 700-acre Hawaiian compound remains impenetrable.
