Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg runs into cash problems on honeymoon

        The 28 year old young multi-billionaire was unable to withdraw money from a cash point on the Island of Capri, Italy during his honeymoon. The young internet tycoon and his new wife Priscilla Chan went by boat from the picturesque Amalfi Coast to the island in the Bay of Naples earlier this week. From the island's tiny port, they took an open topped taxi to have lunch at Da Giorgio, a local restaurant. They then found a nearby ATM machine owned by Banca della Campania, but he was not able to withdraw cash from it. Normally cash machines in Italy are frequently out of service but Naples based bank insisted that it was functioning normally.
        When in Rome, on last monday billionaire Mark Zuckerberg spent only €32 on lunch with his wife and left no tip. Perhaps facebook's plunging share value may have put a dent in his fortune. Shares(NASDAQ) in the company on May 18, fell 10 per cent to an all-time low of $28.65 on Tuesday, what has been hailed as the most disastrous start to trading of any major flotation in the last decade.
