Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg earned $3.3bn (£1.9bn) on the sale of share options in 2013, a new regulatory filing has revealed. Mr Zuckerberg has now exhausted his supply of stock options as a result of Facebook's public offering. He was given 60 million shares to help him with his tax bill. His base salary for 2013 fell to $1, like other tech leaders such as Google's Larry Page and former Apple boss Steve Jobs.
