Zuckerberg criticised for not tipping at restaurant in Rome

It’s not been the best couple of weeks for Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. On paper, he’s lost $4.7 billion in just 11 days and, in doing so, fallen off Bloomberg’s Billionaire Index which measures the 40 wealthiest people in the world.  (He was, briefly, at 29th in that list.)  That said, I shouldn’t think he’s [...]
