The Social Network only perpetuated Mark Zuckerberg's image of a Silicon Valley entrepreneur in flipflops and a hoodie. He has continued to rent his digs since moving from his  Harvard dorm in 2004, despite the fact that he's a billionaire.

But the 26-year-old Facebook CEO is growing up.

Media outlets are reporting that Zuckerberg purchased his first home in Palo Alto for $7 million.

The address wasn't printed for privacy reasons, but reporters were told

that the 5,000-square-foot house is located on a quiet street just 10

minutes from the new Facebook headquarters.

It has a saltwater pool, a music alcove, five bedrooms, a porch, and a sunroom.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
