The founder of Facebook made less than $2M in 2012The founder of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg made $1.99M in 2012 including salary, bonuses and other benefits. Zuckerberg’s income totaled $1.7M a year earlier.

This information is based on documents submitted to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

Zuckerberg's salary totaled $505,2K plus an annual bonus of $266,1K, and the cost of air travel and personal security - $1.22M.

However, the founder of the popular social network earns less than some of his top managers. The Chief Operating Officer of the company Sheryl Sandberg received about $26.2M, and the Technical Director Mike Shrefer - $20.7M (including salary, bonus and Facebook shares as a remuneration).

Zuckerberg said in January 2013 that his base annual salary would be a symbolic $1. This means that since 2013 his revenues will directly depend on Facebook activities.
