Mark Zuckerberg posts image of his Facebook office desk

Mark Zuckerberg is a very rich man, no doubt about it. With the upcoming launch of the IPO for his company Facebook, he could get even more money. However, he still likes to work close to his employees if a new image posted on his Facebook page is any indication.

The image's main focus is on a sign that says "Stay Focused & Keep Shipping". That's a clear message to the team members at Facebook to not become distracted with all of the attention the IPO is sure to generate. Even though a number of its employees, who also have stock options in the company, could become paper millionaires when the stock goes public later this year, the emphasis is simply to work on Facebook's services.

Other interesting bits about the picture include all the Apple products in the office (oddly enough, Microsoft has invested over $240 million in Facebook) and the fact that Zuckerberg drinks Gatorade at his desk. We hope he is careful not to spill his drink all over his workspace. Finally, what's inside that container on the desk that looks like it holds some leftover food from the local Applebees?  We will never know.

gawd working an an "open concept" office like that would drive me nuts, I like quiet and calm, not people moving all over and all the noise from everyone cumulating into one big area

I doubt it's quite that crazy - most people wouldn't be moving around constantly, nor talking loudly. Meetings would still be held in dedicated rooms.

I'm with you on that neufuse. I work in a cubical and am thankful for my fake walls. If everyone was at eye level I'd go nuts.

I bet there are folks with offices there.

you can't fap the stress away or be able to be very nice to call in customers. a friend was like that. he fapped while he worked and the customers liked him. he was very friendly and very laid back.

Probably much much more than this. And it would probably be all over TMZ and the evening news.

No doubt John Callaham will report on that too.

Uh, yeah - I think that didn't really prove your point at all. News is generally items of notable interest, of which that would certainly be one.

Neowin, please don't listen to everyone saying "this isn't news". I enjoy reading about how tech companies are run.

We already knew this. The BBC did a documentary about Mark a couple of months ago, and they mentioned this...

I love open space offices like Facebook, a place I worked at had the same thing where developers where all around desks in big open space room, it makes you feel like your really working together when its like that.

Very bland. I would prefer an office with up to 10 coleagues. At least it feels like an office that way.

He doesn't have an office where you can close a door? Sounds a little unbelievable to me.

The CEO of the company I work for has an entire floor of a building that is just for him.
