Awesm developer Jeremiah Cohick posted the following Facebook status earlier today, postulating that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is too busy wheeling and dealing to actually use Facebook, “In the same way drug dealers don’t use the product they sell, I doubt Zuckerberg is on Facebook all day. Visionaries don’t idle online.”
Well, the proof is in the pudding as they say; From what it looks like, Zuckerberg immediately replied to Cohick’s status update, “No, I really do use Facebook all day long.”
Thus far 1,732 people have liked Zuckerberg’s response, 243 have liked Cohick’s original comment and 32 people have shared the exchange mostly because it humanizes Zuck, bringing him down to our level. I mean, if he was trolling Facebook enough to see that random person’s comment in the first place then he probably does spend a lot of time on the service.
In my humble experience, Internet visionaries do spend massive amounts of time online, because having a deep and continually updating understanding of how people communicate and interact here sparks the visionary process. Besides, that drug dealer thing is mostly an urban myth anyways.

- MARK ZUCKERBERG
Facebook is the world’s largest social network, with over 500 million users.
Facebook was founded by Mark Zuckerberg in February 2004, initially as an exclusive network for Harvard students. It was a huge hit: in 2 weeks, half of the schools in the Boston area began demanding a Facebook network. Zuckerberg immediately recruited his friends Dustin Moskowitz and Chris Hughes to help build Facebook, and within four months, Facebook added 30 more college networks.
The original idea for the term…
Mark Zuckerberg is the founder and CEO of Facebook, which he started in his college dorm room in 2004 with roomates Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes.
Zuckerberg is responsible for setting the overall direction and product strategy for Facebook. He leads the design of Facebook’s service and development of its core technology and infrastructure.
Earlier in life, Zuckerberg developed a music recommendation system called Synapse and a peer-to-peer client called Wirehog. However, he abandoned both to pursue new projects.
