(Newser) – Because Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg isn't a huge fan of others' privacy, Gawker is testing how he feels about his own. A photographer followed him around Silicon Valley for a week to give him the "paparazzi treatment," snapping photos of him hanging out with friends and family and, all in all, leading a surprisingly ordinary life. Click through to the link here to see the photos.

"If it feels a little naughty to take such a close look into Zuckerberg's life, remember that this is the executive who pushed the private information of Facebook's hundreds of millions of users progressively further into the public sphere," writes Ryan Tate. "Facebook's CEO doesn't seem too preoccupied about your privacy, or about ours. Likewise, we weren't bothered by the notion of tailing him around the Valley for a few days, or about sharing the experience with you. Enjoy."
