The company also spent $1.6 million on private jets for the CEO, according to Business Insider. 

The SEC filings did not give details on how the money was spent. But a 2019 Business Insider article reported that Zuckerberg had 24-7 bodyguard protection, access to an office with bullet-resistant glass, and a panic button.
