Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and new wife Pricilla Chan usually keep their relationship on the DL so it’s hard for paps to spot them. But somehow they unintentionally made a cameo on Chinese television when they went for a stroll through Shanghai on March 27.
The then boyfriend and girlfriend are into an episode of Chinese Police that was being shot for China Central Television. Zuckerberg looks inquisitively at the police men in front of him. The couple is currently on their honeymoon in Rome.

The Dublin band’s frontman might not have a crucial role in the founding role of Facebook, though Zuckerberg may “like” U2, but his private equity firm Elevation Partners owns 1.5 per cent of the shares.
That means he invested about $90 million in 2009 – but, when the social networking site goes public later this year, Bono’s share will be worth about $1 billion. If you think about it, that’s some $300 million more than the current richest rock star, Sir Paul McCartney
For those of you that might think that amount of cheddar is redonkulous – remember how much of Bono’s finances goes to his many charity projects, mostly focused on humanitarian aid in Africa.
Twenty-six-year-old Mark Zuckerberg, the youngest billionaire in the world and CEO of Facebook has pledged to donate a mammoth sum of 100 million dollars to the public school system in Newark, New Jersey, reports PerezHilton.com.
The public school system in Newark is responsible for having some of the worst performing public schools in the United States and is in desperate need of some help.
It’s a very generous contribution at a very crucial time in young Zuckerberg’s life. The Social Network is only three weeks away from being released and the film paints a tainted picture of Zuckerberg. Although it may not be entirely factual, Zuckerberg could still face a blow to his reputation. Though we don’t truly begin to understand Zuckerberg’s true character, he is portrayed in the film as a jealous and conniving, yet never greedy. The end of the film humanizes Zuckerberg, but we know how viscous people can be and many will most likely look past his civility.
The charitable donation may have come straight from the heart, but it was also a good move on Zuckerberg’s part and may just aid him in avoiding a tidal wave of backlash from the film.
After the hit gambling movie “21,” Kevin Spacey is once again teaming up with author Ben Mezrich to produce “The Social Network,” an adaptation of the the new book “The Accidental Billionaires.” The book tells the story of Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg.
There have been rumours that actors including “Transformers” star Shia Labeouf, Canadian Michael Cera and “I Love You, Beth Cooper’s” Paul Rust are up for the lead role. However, in an interview with MTV News, Spacey set the record straight and said no one has read for the part.
“I can’t imagine anyone’s read for it because we haven’t really announced the director…So I don’t think anyone’s read for it. Maybe in their fantasy they’ve auditioned for it,” he told MTV News.
