    ^^ Do you think facebook runs on donation or something.

    It's all the advertisers from cash around the world which goes to the Zukerberg's bank.

    and BHW didn't made him rich.

    well publishers is not the word to use though,
    but i feel in a way we have done a lot to contribute to his wealth.
    fb plugins are in most of the sites now.

    But who am I to judge?

    Over the year, Zuckerberg became a billionaire, and signed his 500 millionth person to Facebook. He became a major philanthropist with his $100 million donation on Oprah. He took major steps, such as enabling the ?like? button to appear on hundreds of millions of Web pages, and letting outside developers collect personal Facebook information directly from FB customers, that pave the way for Facebook to occupy more and more of our time online, even enable the creation of 500 million personalized Internets. The evolution of the payments button means that device will soon likely be used to pay for more and more things, including media ? meaning the likes of me could indirectly depend on him too. ;);)

    the issue i have with all 'donating to charity' is knowing EXactly how much gets to the direct cause. I am suspicious about people in 'overhead' who soak up all the donations.

    I will do charity donations much differently...when i have the billions to do so :fing26:

    All good and nice and well done. BUT...

    When some of these massively rich dudes need a public facelift nothing's better than a donation that doesn't make ANY difference in their lives BUT has a major influence on the public opinion about how good and nice they've become...

    Don't get me wrong, I'm glad if his money will contribute helping good causes and it's definitely a gesture of goodwill and all, but it tends to leave me kind of indifferent when I think about the THOUSANDS of organizations that work EVERY DAY on strict budgets to help poor people or to fight mortal diseases...

    After all generosity is MORE generous if you have to deprive yourself of something... If this doesn't cost you a single sacrifice it's nice but doesn't necessarily make you a better person. Just my thought.

    1 word. "Illuminati" , no matter how u see it, they run the world, if theres gonna be
    a huge donation like that, guaranteed a small minuscule portion of it goes to the actual
    cause. Theres more money in this world to save more than the portion that are poor.
    Just the Illuminati is greedy.

    Steal from the rich, give to the poor, Robin Hood Way :)

    No, that is the socialist way and socialism is proven not to work. Just look at a recent example on how poor North Korea socialist economy became and is now on the brink of collaspe and how successful South Korea's capitalist economy is growing.

    Robinhood actually took from the government (such as the prince) who was corrupt.

    Voluntary giving as Zuckerberg is doing and actually creating programs that help, jobs, and encourage the poor with education and being more productive is the only thing that works.

    I wonder how many of those 500 million profiles were created by BHW users. 1 million? 10 million? more? :)
