Mark Zuckerberg has added a new post to his timeline. He and longtime girlfriend Priscilla Chan have tied the knot.
The Facebook co-founder and chief executive officer announced on the social network: "Mark Zuckerberg added a life event to May 19, 2012 on his timeline: Married Priscilla Chan."
Zuckerberg, 28, posted a photo which showed the young CEO wore a suit jacket at the wedding rather than his trademark hoodie, Xinhua reported.
The couple tied the knot at Zuckerberg's home in Palo Alto, California.
"Zuckerberg's wedding was in his backyard, before fewer than 100 guests, who thought they were there to celebrate Chan's graduation," according to a tweet from a Huffington Post editor.
The 27-year-old Chan and Zuckerberg met at Harvard and have been dating for more than nine years. Chan is an American-Chinese.
The wedding wrapped up a busy week for the couple. Zuckerberg turned 28 Monday, the same day Chan graduated from the medical school at the University of California, San Francisco.
On Friday, he rang the bell from the Facebook headquarters in California, staging one of the most anticipated initial public offering in Wall Street history.
