Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg: No Longer ‘Single’

Well it’s amazing what a dog can do to make a man feel settled. Only a few weeks after we told about Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg getting a new puppy (which incidentally has its own Facebook page), Zuckerberg has finally changed his status on Facebook. Instead of ‘single’, Zuckerberg’s status is now ‘in a relationship.’

When pictures of the puppy named ‘Beast’ were published, there were some that featured both Zuckerberg and his girlfriend Priscilla Chan playing with the pup. Many saw the puppy and its Facebook page as bringing out a softer and warmer side of Zuckerberg and it does seem significant that after 7 years of being with his girlfriend, he’s finally committed publicly to being ‘in a relationship.’

Over on Metro, Joanne McCabe reports how the couple has been together since meeting at Harvard in 2003 and maybe Zuckerberg felt a twang of guilt at not changing his status earlier because he himself acknowledged that it was “long overdue.” You never know the next update may see news of an engagement! One of the world’s most eligible bachelors is now officially off the market but if you want to find out about other social networking billionaires check out our previous article at the link.
