Owner and Founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg recently hired sixteen bodyguards for his $7million private residence in Palo Alto, California.
Zuckerberg who is anti-gun employed his first bodyguard in 2011 amidst public uproar.
Page Six reports the bodyguards work in morning and evening shifts; with other residents of Silicon Valley upgrading their security measures as well due to an upsurge of threats by unstable web users.
“He has guards over at his place,” said a Palo Alto, Calif. source “You’re touching hundreds of millions of people. All the CEOs get threats, and they take them very seriously.”
The threats stem from social media users as well as mobile app users who might be unnerved and every tech mogul in Silicon Valley is concerned enough to take precautions. In 2015, Facebook announced it had 1.56billion users.
