Nothing is supposed to show up on your Facebook Wall unless it's posted by you or your friends, but it can happen, as Khalil Shreateh just proved.

By posting on Mark Zuckerberg's wall.

Mark Zuckerberg Facebook Page Hacked

Shreateh, a security researcher from Palestine, first reported the bug to Facebook, which pays people to report such things rather than sell them on the black market.

But, instead of fixing the bug and paying the researcher the $500+ fee, Facebook told him "this was not a bug," according to an email that Shreateh shared.

When he tried a second time to warn the company and was rebuffed, Shreateh posted on the Wall of Sarah Goodin - a friend of Facebook CEO Zuckerberg.

That got their attention REALLY fast.

Facebook users wishing to send a personal message to stars may soon be able to do so thanks to the social network's pay-to-message program.

The program, which quietly launched in the U.S. this past December, has now been expanded into the UK and 36 other countries, according to reports.

Zuck on This

"It is being tested among a very small percentage of users," a rep said, "There is no set timescale. It depends on what happens, what feedback we get."

"We are testing a number of price points in the UK and other countries to establish the optimal fee that signals importance. This is still in a test phase."

Mark Zuckerberg's sister Randi accidentally shared a private family photo, apparently confused by or unable to grasp Facebook's privacy settings.

How's that for the definition of irony?

Zuckerberg Family Photo

Randi Zuckerberg, the former head of marketing for Facebook and the executive producer of Bravo's reality series Silicon Valley, posted the above photo on Facebook.

The candid family picture is of Randi and her family (including sister Arielle Zuckerberg and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg) reacting to the new Poke app.

The problem arose when Callie Schweitzer, director of marketing and projects at VoxMedia, saw the photo on Facebook, but posted it publicly on Twitter.

Mark Zuckerberg has donated $500 million to charity. No, that is not a misprint.

The Facebook CEO handed off that amount in company stock Tuesday, with the Silicon Valley Community Foundation -  a nonprofit that works with donors to allocate their contributions - the beneficiary of the monumental sum.

Can Zuckerberg afford it? Oh yes: he earned $3.5 billion in November alone. Again, that is not a misprint.

Safe to say November was a relatively good month for Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

The social network's stock shot up from $21.08 a share on the first day of trading to $28 a share this past Friday, reaching its highest price since July.

Zuckerberg, who owns about 504 million shares of Facebook stock (give or take), saw his net worth increase $3.48 billion as a result. Not bad for 30 days' work.

Long story short, his critics can Zuck on that! Sorry.

A photo of a topless Mark Zuckerberg was leaked to the Internet today, fueling rumors that his privacy functions may have just failed epically,

That, or someone's gonna be getting unfriended by the CEO real fast.

The shirtless pic was only up briefly before being deleted, but a screen grab of it - with commentary - is making the online rounds. Pretty funny.

Here's Mark in the undated photo with some friends (presumably):

Mark Zuckerberg Shirtless

The photo of Zuckerberg topless first surfaced on image-sharing site Imgur.

The poster there claims it was "accidentally posted" by Boz, a.k.a. Facebook Director of Engineering Andrew Bosworth, who can be seen on the far right.

Boz allegedly took it down "seconds later," but on the Internet, that can be more than long enough for someone to see it and pass it along to others.

At least he looks like he's having a good time.

Guests at the surprise wedding of Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan wedding first saw the bride in her beautiful white gown, accompanied by the couple's dog, Beast.

The 1-year-old Puli, an Internet celebrity in his own right (he has 570,000 Facebook fans), wore his shaggy Hungarian sheepdog hair pinned up over his eyes.

Check out the photo of Beast and Chan in her wedding dress:

Priscilla Chan Wedding Dress

Beast first joined Chan and Zuckerberg in their Palo Alto, Calif., house last year, a month after he was born. He has since pooped on Zuckerberg's rug, visited the Facebook offices, and met the Dog Whisperer, Cesar Millan, among other milestones.

Most of all, he has become an important and meaningful member of the family.

Both Zuckerberg and Chan, known as Dad and Mom on Beast's page, feature their beloved dog in the cover photos of their personal Facebook pages.

Walking mom down the aisle to marry dad? Doesn't get better than that.

While Mark Zuckerberg was taking Facebook public, his longtime girlfriend Priscilla Chan was quietly putting the final touches on her wedding gown.

In a surprise relationship status update, Zuckerberg and Chan married Saturday in a small, unannounced ceremony at their home in Palo Alto, Calif.

The bride looked stunning in Claire Pettibone’s “Sky Between the Branches” gown, an ivory laser-cut floral dress with matte sequins lined in silk.

The gown featured subtle cutouts in the overlay, plus an illusion jewel neckline, sheer back and chapel-length train. Chan's dress retails for $4,700.

Pettibone, a Los Angeles-based designer, has also created wedding dresses for stars like Mad Men's Elisabeth Moss and American Idol's Tamyra Gray.

Guests thought they were merely coming over for a surprise party to celebrate Chan’s graduation from medical school at the University of California.

However, the couple, who met at Harvard more than nine years ago, had been planning the low-key wedding for more than four months.

Given that Facebook stock is already down $4 today, at least Mark has something to smile about ... well that and being worth tens of billions.

Congratulations to the newlyweds again!

Quite the week for Mark Zuckerberg.

The Facebook founder and CEO married his longtime girlfriend Priscilla Chan in a casual, intimate wedding at his Palo Alto, Calif., home on Saturday.

The couple, both 28, met at Harvard and have been going steady for nine years. They got hitched in front of about 100 family members and friends.

The wedding guests reportedly thought they had gathered merely to celebrate Chan's graduation from medical school at the University of California.

Surprise, surprise.

Just one day earlier, Mark made one of the most anticipated moves in finance history in Facebook's IPO, taking his company public at last.

A company spokeswoman said Zuckerberg designed the wedding ring for Priscilla Chan himself, and it featured "a very simple ruby."

And yes, Zuckerberg made it official and public by, of course, changing his status on Facebook from "In a Relationship" to "Married."

He also shared the cute pic above. Congrats!

Controversy over Mark Zuckerberg's hoodie abated Friday as he turned investors' attention to more important matters at a presentation in Palo Alto, Calif.

Chief among them? Improving Facebook's mobile application.

About 200 investors showed up at an IPO presentation to quiz Zuckerberg about generating revenue from mobile users, crucial for long-term fiscal growth.

Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook's COO, said overall advertising is gaining steam, with most marketers increasing their spending with Facebook.

Zuck

The executives, who appeared on stage alongside CFO David Ebersman, highlighted social ads as an important tool for Facebook to tackle mobile challenges.

The ads, incorporating information about Facebook users' friends who "like" certain products, are better-suited to the smaller screens of smartphones.

More than half of Facebook's users currently use it from phones.
