Mainstream media reports that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has just bought his first home. Reports left out the address of the home, even though it's listed publicly throughout the internet.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has just bought his first home. Reports throughout the mainstream media have left out the address of the home, even though it was (and still is) listed publicly on Zillow.com, among other places. (see http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/1456-Edgewood-Dr-Palo-Alto-CA-94301/19467041_zpid/).

Some of the mainstream articles state that the original newspaper reporting the purchase did not disclose the address because Zuckerberg had a restraining order against someone. Nonetheless, the issue is a matter of public concern, and Zuckerberg is a public figure and has no privacy right concerning the address of a home he purchases. In addition, the address of the home, including photos, is all over the internet; and property records of sales and purchases are public information. SFGate goes as far to state: "The historic house is located in the 1400 block of Edgewood Drive in the Crescent Park neighborhood of Palo Alto."

Indeed, less than one minute of internet homework reveals that the address of the home is 1456 Edgewood Dr, Palo Alto, CA 94301.
