Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg took home just $1 for his annual base salary last year, but the company shelled out nearly $9 million on his security and private planes. A new public filing shows Facebook significantly increased the amount it spent on keeping Zuckerberg safe in 2017, upping such expenses more than 50% from the $5.8 million it spent in 2016. All told, the company has spent about $20 million on Zuckerberg's security and travel on private planes since 2015. And Facebook pays for security personnel and security systems at his residences, according to the filing. Earlier this week, Zuckerberg spent 10 hours testifying before Congressional committees about the issue.
