Mark Zuckerberg's year in review 2016

Any public figure's Facebook profile page is open to all, but there are some privacy settings that do not allow anyone to get some hidden information. You probably started getting the "look back at some moments from 2016" videos on your feeds, and as annoying as it may be, there is a good side to it.

On a personal level, you might feel nostalgic about seeing your past memories beautifully stitched together in a short video. But if you share that publicly, you might be giving out on something more than just those special moments.

Mark Zuckerberg, the founder and CEO of Facebook, had to share his "year in review 2016" video with his followers. But the hawk-eyed reporter at Business Insider used this to decipher some interesting information about Zuckerberg's profile, which is not publicly accessible.

To be more specific, Zuckerberg's Friends list is hidden from every one of his followers (probably to avoid stalkers from going crazy with it). But his "year in review 2016" video gives away a few names that are in Zuckerberg's Facebook Friends list.

Honorary mention: Facebook's "year in review" video only shows people that are in your Friends list towards the end of it.

If you have always wondered who the lucky folks are in that covert Friends list, you are in luck. Check out the people Business Insider has managed to name from the video shared by Zuckerberg himself.

Dave Morin – A former Facebook employee who left the company in 2010. He is now the CEO of social networking app Path.

Yuri Milner – He had bought 1.96 percent stake in Facebook for $200 million in 2009 through its Russian tech company Mail.Ru Group.

Elliot Schrage – The current vice president of communications and public policy.

Jessica Lessin – Founder and CEO of The Information. Her husband Sam Lessin was an early Facebook employee and a friend of Zuckerberg. We bet he is also in Mark's Friends list.

David Marcus – Head of the Facebook Messenger team and former president of PayPal.

Caryn Marooney – VP of global communications at Facebook.

Brent Tworetzky – Husband of Zuckerberg's sister, Randi Zuckerberg, and the current VP of product at the XO Group.

Well, these folks are within Zuckerberg's inner circle. But there are many faces that can be seen towards the end of the video. If you recognise any of them, feel free to voice out your suggestion. Needless to say, Zuckerberg's dear wife Priscilla Chan is undoubtedly in his inner circle.
