Facebook chief executive officer #Mark Zuckerberg announced that he will temporarily leave the company to spend time with his family. The CEO of one of the world’s biggest social media platforms will take two months of #Paternity Leave on the birth of his second daughter, he posted on his #Facebook profile.

“When we gave birth to Max, I went on to two months of temporary leave. I am always thankful that I could spend a lot of time with her in the first moments of her life,” Zuckerberg wrote. Max is the nickname of Maxima, his first daughter with her wife, Priscilla. The Facebook post included a photo of Max playing with their pet dog.

The CEO added that he will take a month off to spend time with the two children, and with his wife. He will also take the whole month of December off for the same reason.

“I’m looking forward to spend time with our second daughter and taking Max on adventures,” he added. Social media has been following his personal life as well since he married Priscilla.

Facebook’s policies

According to Mashable, the social media networking company offers four months of both paternity and maternity leave for its employees, which can be applied through the following year. Right now, it is still undecided on who is going to relieve the job and duties of Zuckerberg when he begins his paternity leave.

“Research reveals that when employed parents spend some time to be with their babies, it’s good for the whole family.

I’m pretty certain the office will still be standing when I return,” the Facebook CEO also wrote. The social media network platform generates millions of users every day.

Visit every state in America

Mashable reported that this is not the first time Zuckerberg is taking on a leave. He already spent several times beyond the walls of his office to attend to various agenda. One of them is his plan to visit every state in America, as part of his 2017 New Year’s resolution.

This reportedly drew speculations that he might be running for president in 2020, alongside the incumbent president Donald Trump if the latter decides to run for another term. Mashable said that his trips will allow him to meet various people around the United States, regardless of their economic background.

In moments like this, it is usually Facebook’s chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg who takes over. She usually forwards Zuckerberg’s decisions to the organization, and on her personal profile as well, Mashable added.
