Mark Zuckerberg buys four houses to create privacy, is there another way? Posted on 8:36am Thursday 24th Oct 2013 0 Comments So, It has been reported in the news that the Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg bought the four houses around his so that he could create some more privacy for himself. Sometimes we could take a step back from an issue and look at it another way. For instance, I created some more privacy for myself in a much simpler way... ....I bought some curtains! Remember there is often more than one way to solve a problem.
