Land in Hawaii[edit]

In the section called "Legal controversies," I added a subsection called "Hawaiian land ownership controversy" with the following content:

  • In January 2017, it was reported that Zuckerberg's lawyers had filed eight "quiet title and partition" lawsuits against hundreds of native Hawaiians to try to get them to sell their land to him. This land is contained within the 700 acres of land in the Hawaiian island of Kauai that Zuckerberg had purchased in in 2014. However, it was also reported that Hawaiian land ownership law differs from that of the other 49 states, and Zuckerberg said that media reports about his actions in this incident have been "misleading."[1][2][3][4][5]

Someone else removed the content and commented "Not relevant to section; no controversies involved."

I am interested in hearing what other editors think about including or not including this content.

Thank you.

@Bk33725681: There's certainly controversy involved, given that the suit had to be withdrawn after opposition. I restored the content, feel free to update it with new information. HaEr48 (talk) 04:51, 4 March 2017 (UTC)

Typo in 2nd paragraph[edit]

Zuckerberg's last name is misspelled in the 2nd paragraph. Sorry my Wikipedia ediquette is probably poor but hopefully someone will read this and fix it.

 Done thanks for pointing that out; it's now spelled correctly Snuggums (talk / edits) 05:35, 4 March 2017 (UTC)

Center for Talented Youth[edit]

I recall that Zuckerberg was in the Center for Talented Youth as a grade schooler. There is no mention of it in this article, and I would like to be accurate before editing. Does anybody know when exactly was he in the program, and for how long? Heaviside glow (talk) 21:20, 9 March 2017 (UTC)

CNN simply states he went there without giving a timeframe, and I so far can't seem to find anything viable on when. Not sure if it's worth including without such detail. Snuggums (talk / edits) 21:25, 9 March 2017 (UTC)
It has been mentioned by multiple secondary sources such as bio pieces of Zuckerberg and write-ups of the Center for Talented Youth, so it is inappropriate for us to decide to not include it. Heaviside glow (talk) 22:38, 10 March 2017 (UTC)

A book of faces and[edit]

If facebook is primarily a collection of compatable people then surely there is a large overlap into

People especially in the more ancient cultures would hang around with the same old faces for generations

If you're suggesting that some sort of comparison to should be included in the article, then I'm not sure where a good place for that would be. Snuggums (talk / edits) 15:26, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 25 April 2017[edit]

I noticed that at the beginning there is a detailed phonetic IPA transcription (/mɑɹk_ˈɛli̯ət ˈzʌkʰɚbɚg/) of Mark Zuckerberg's name. It is too detailed to be understood by a layperson and is unnecessary because his name is easily pronounceable. I suggest that we remove the IPA transcription and do not replace it because it is unnecessary and overtechnical. Jaspertalwani (talk) 01:06, 25 April 2017 (UTC)

 Done you bring up a good point, so I've removed it Snuggums (talk / edits) 01:48, 25 April 2017 (UTC)
