Mark Zuckerberg in Topless Photo: Facebook Director Accidentally Posts on Imgur

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has been seen in new topless photos in an alleged leak from website "imgur."

The photos have caused quite a stir as Zuckerberg is ordinarily very conservative and is certainly always fully clothed in public.

In the new photo though Zuckerberg is topless in an unknown location along with colleagues or friends in what appears to be an only guys party.

Some sources have claimed that the photo was in fact released by Facebook Director of Engineering Andrew Bosworth. It is alleged that he "accidentally" uploaded the photo, but then realized his mistake and deleted it moments later. However, on the Internet you only need to make a mistake for a second, and especially on imgur, which has 500 million subscribers, as soon as his photo was released hundreds grabbed it immediately.

Facebook is currently going through a tough time and its stock prices have been consistently falling since its IPO.

Since 2010 Zuckerberg has been named among the 100 wealthiest and most influential people in the world by Time magazine's Person of the Year. In 2010 a fictionalized account of Zuckerberg creating Facebook while in college and its later start-up phase was made into a movie dramatization, The Social Network.

At a party put on by his fraternity during his sophomore year, Zuckerberg met Priscilla Chan, a fellow student who he began dating in 2003. Chan is the child of a Chinese-Vietnamese refugee, who arrived in the U.S. after the Fall of Saigon, was born in Braintree, Massachusetts, a suburb of Boston, and is a 2003 graduate of Quincy High School.

On May 19, 2012, Zuckerberg and Chan married in Zuckerberg's backyard in a celebration also marking her graduation from medical school
