Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg reaped a £1.98 billion ($3.3 billion) gain in 2013 by exercising stock options in the social networking company he founded at Harvard University.
In 2012, the now 29-year-old, also made $2.3 billion off his stock options. He even limited his Facebook salary to just $1, according to regulatory documents filed on Monday.
Facebook will acquire the two-year-old Oculus VR Inc, a maker of virtual-reality glasses for gaming, for $2bn (£1.2bn).
It is Mark Zuckerberg's first venture into the fast-growing wearable technology industry.
The acquisition, which comes hot on the heels of its $19bn deal for messaging service WhatsApp, marks a big bet by Facebook to anticipate the next shift in an evolving technology industry, at a time when consumers are increasingly abandoning their PCs for smartphones.
"We're making a long-term bet that immersive, virtual and augmented reality will become a part of people's daily life," Facebook founder Zuckerberg said.
Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg has hit out at the US government over claims it covertly used the social networking site to gather intelligence data on individuals.
Zuckerberg said he was "confused and frustrated" by the reports and stressed that to "keep the internet strong, we need to keep it secure".
He wrote in a Facebook post: "When our engineers work tirelessly to improve security, we imagine we're protecting you against criminals, not our own government.
"The US government should be the champion for the internet, not a threat. They need to be much more transparent about what they're doing, or otherwise people will believe the worst."
The internet mogul said he called President Barack Obama to discuss the issue, adding, "Unfortunately, it seems like it will take a very long time for true full reform."
The WhatsApp instant messaging service is on course to connect one billion people around the world, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has said.
The mobile phone application was bought by Facebook for 19 billion US dollars (£12 billion) last week.
It was announced today that a voice calling service will be added to WhatsApp in the coming months.The WhatsApp brand is to be maintained and its headquarters will remain in Mountain View, California. Its co-founder and chief executive Jan Koum will join Facebook's board of directors.
Mr Koum told the conference that WhatsApp would offer a voice service for Android mobiles and iPhones this spring, with Blackberry, Microsoft and Nokia handsets coming later.
