Welcome To Facebook Island

Mark Zuckerberg just dropped big bucks on property that most of us could never dream of affording.

If you're Mark Zuckerberg, then dropping some big change on a gigantic piece of property is no big deal.

After all, what is the CEO of the billion dollar company, Facebook, supposed to do with all the cash anyway?

Apparently, buy a gorgeous, 357-acre old sugarcane plantation, and a 393-acre beach area, all in a secluded area in the island of Kauai, according to Business Insider. Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook, Hawaii

Zuckerberg, who rocks jeans and a hoodie on a daily basis, seems to not live the typical lives of the rich and famous. However, when you're worth $30 billion, there isn't too much out of your reach. Hence, purchasing a $100 million dollar home. However, there is a good chance that it was well more than that amount, which isn't surprising if you see the photos.

The new property is supposedly meant to give Zuckerberg and his family a lot more privacy, which will be a big change from his other residence in Palo Alto. 

Zuckerberg occasionally shows up in the news for strange things...being randomly seen in public (sometimes at a Mcdonald's), lawsuits over homes, speaking Mandarin at conferences, and now, buying massive pieces of land.

Luckily, for those of you who are crazy Zuckerberg fans, his property can only be private to a certain extent, as all the beaches in Hawaii belong to anyone and everyone who wants to visit them. 

Next time you're in Kauai, see if you can spot him, and if you can't, you should still be able to see the new house from pretty far away, as 700-acres is a good percentage of land on this tiny island.
