Billionaire Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg received an invitation recently from the mayor of Hvar Town on the Croatian island of Hvar. But Mayor Perino Bebic wasn’t just inviting Zuckerberg to take a holiday down in the beautiful Pakleni Islands, he was also offering to rename an island after his massive social networking website. Mayor Bebic wants to do something to honor Facebook, by renaming the tiny island of Veli Vodnjak, which is a small 0.245 square kilometre island with a lighthouse that sits within view of Hvar
Town. Bebic states that the lighthouse is a symbol of connectivity, which is fitting because Facebook is one of the most important tools that we use to connect with others in this day and age. Hvar Island and the Pakleni Islands are known as a playground of the rich and famous, with many celebrities owning yachts and villas there such as Bill Gates and Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich. The islands were voted one of the world’s most beautiful islands by readers of Conde Nast magazine. If Zuckerberg takes the Mayor up on his offer, he will surely have a fantastic holiday.
