Mark Zuckerberg is the founder and CEO of the $200 billion digital giant company, Facebook, and as such, one would expect the social networking pioneer to be collecting a hefty pay-check every year. However, Zuckerberg has revealed that he pays himself a modest $1 per year, and here is his reasoning why: 

"I've made enough money. At this point, I'm just focused on making sure I do the most possible good with what I have. The main way I can help is through Facebook - giving people the power to share and connecting the world. I'm also focusing on my education and health philanthropy work outside of Facebook as well. Too many people die unnecessarily and don't get the opportunities they deserve. There are lots of things in the world that need to get fixed and I'm just lucky to have the chance to work on fixing some of them."

Zuckerberg is not the only tech CEO to receive pay themselves a $1 others who have taken the same measures include Elon Musk and Mark Pincus.
