Zuckerberg: I'm being stalked on Facebook (video)

This is the funniest thing I have heard all day (to be fair, I did wake up very recently).   It's so ironic that his baby is being used against him- but really hilarious that he would admit it to anyone in the first place!   I would assume he has the same options in facebook as anyone else- just block the dude who's harassing you!   Oh, wait, you mean he got your personal info because facebook doesn't actually care about your privacy- awwww poor Mark- maybe now you will fix your product so that it actually protects it's trusting users...

Man tried to ask internet tycoon for money to help his family, TMZ reports

Please understand my pain."
TMZ also said it was alleged in legal papers that the man had tried to "follow, surveil and contact Mr. Zuckerberg using language threatening his personal safety."   Barry Schnitt, a director at Facebook, told NBC News the report was accurate.
"We're confirming that the restraining order was granted, but not providing any additional details," he said.   NBC News reported that a hearing about the matter was due to take place on Feb. 22 at Santa Clara County court, according to its website.   The TMZ report said Zuckerberg also feared for his girlfriend's and sister's safety.
Citing law enforcement sources, the website said the man had tried to ask Zuckerberg for money to help his family by going to Facebook offices in Palo Alto.
According to TMZ, the legal papers said that on Jan. 24 the man was about to go up the front steps of Zuckerberg's house when he was stopped by Facebook security.
