Zuckerberg wants to tear down neighboring homesFour houses adjacent to Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg’s home in Palo Alto, Calif. could be demolished and replaced with smaller ones, the San Jose Mercury News reports, citing a planning application filed last week.

The move is reportedly driven by the 32-year-old billionaire’s privacy concerns. The Facebook CEO spent more than $30 million to purchase the surrounding homes in 2013 after he found out about a developer's plan to build a home next to his 5-bedroom property that would have a view of his master bedroom, the report said.
