No she didn't. Why do you think they timed the wedding like that? CA is a community property state. Everything earned prior to marriage is separate property. All gains, income, and dividends earned from separate property remains separate property. That $17B is still Mark's and his alone. Today, maybe. He hasn't used marital time skill and energy on his separate property yet. But a couple years from now, no way. Ask Kobe or tiger , no matter how good the prenup, she won the lottery. Throw a couple kids in the mix and this stands to be the largest divorce settlement of all time.
You know, money can buy you a lot of sex & hot girls (and for some, that's all they want ), but not true love. Consider that they have met & become boyfriend / girlfriend since both were poor students in college. Their marriage is based more on love than money.
Mark's wife isn't that hot. However, he's lucky to be able to find someone that love him for who he is. For sure, with 17 billions, now he can get as much sex with all the hot young girl as he want. However, most girls now would sleep with him because of his 17 billions, not because they love him.

He might have to wait a few days longer than he expected ...

I still remember the good old day of ICQ. Facebook is like ICQ/Groupon/etc which got many users since they were one of the first. Now ICQ is just one of the MANY instant messaging program. Right now FB offer nothing that can't be easily replace. Once Google, Microsoft, etc, introduced something similar and integrated them to Android/Gmail/Windows/hotmail/etc, people likely switch to use those instead.
Remember xanga, live journal, friendster and myspace? They're just waiting in the gutter for Facebook to join them when the next big thing catches.I don't really care where FB ends up, but I think you're oversimplifying the outcome. FB has managed to dig its claws deep into the internet by providing social infrastructure. See all those "Like" links on various news sites? Even the commenting infrastructure is provided by FB for many sites now. They have much more momentum and greater depth than the MySpaces of past. Where it'll all end up is anyone's guess. Agreed.
The real issue with FB isn't whether they'll be dead and forgotten in a year (they won't), but whether they'll figure out how to monetize all the eyeballs. Sticking ads next to every "Like" button or "Talkback" comments section is not going to work. Not to mention mobile. They've opened all their APIs to be accessible to myriad applications but it also makes it tough to control the ad experience, and hence the revenue.
