She was an early employee of Facebook where she pioneered live streaming initiatives and struck groundbreaking deals with ABC and CNN. Her new book is Dot Complicated: Untangling Our Wired Lives.

Zuckerberg shared her six favorite books with readers of The Week magazine. One title on the list:
Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand

Louis Zamperini was a former Olympic athlete whose U.S. bomber went down in the Pacific during World War II. In a story that’s a testament to human endurance, Zamperini clings to life and is later challenged by an even greater trial when he becomes a prisoner of war. Hillenbrand is a skillful storyteller, as evidenced by her earlier success with Seabiscuit.
