It seems pretty amazing that Mark Zuckerberg was able to buy WhatsApp and Oculus Rift, while only making $1 off of his salary.
It's true: Zuck only got a dollar, a steep drop from the $503,000 he made last in 2012. But, he did get himself a nice bonus and some other pay to kick his 2013 earnings up to $651,165. That still doesn't seem like Zuckerberg money though, amirite? That's because he gets all of his other wealth from the stock he owns in Facebook (he owns about 61 percent of the company), which brings his earnings to $3.3 billion after exercising his stock options. So don't go feeling bad for Zuck, he's still the 22nd richest person in the world.
Apple's Steve Jobs, when he was alive, and Google founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page, all made $1-a-year as well.
