Finishing off what had already been a rather busy week, Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg has now announced he and his long term girlfriend Priscilla Chan were married in a secret ceremony on Saturday.

The wedding was of such a classified nature that apparently guests didn't even know it was a wedding until they arrived, instead they thought it a party to celebrate Chan's doctorate graduation earlier in the week. The latter, along with Zuckerberg celebrating his 28th birthday and the small matter of his company, Facebook, going public, meant this had already been a thoroughly busy week, so what better way to end it than getting married.

Zuckerberg met Chan while they were both at Harvard university, some nine years ago, while Facebook was a mere twinkle in its CEO's eye.

The ceremony was attended by around 100 guests, according to San Jose Mercury News. The source also said the date for the wedding was not set around the IPO but the IPO date was a moving target that had simply coincided.

The IPO of Facebook saw Zuckerberg become a multi-billionaire as he retained a controlling 56 per cent (503.6million) of Facebook's shares, which initially solid for $38 a piece.

"Secret Ceremony"? I thought privacy was a thing of the past...?

Secret; yes. And she had to give up all of her PRIVACY RIGHTS, as part of the vows. I heard she's STILL trying to navigate through his confusing Privacy Policy, as it was changing even up to the ceremony itself. Wow; sounds familiar...
