Mark Zuckerberg, 28, is making his first political contribution in the 2012 election cycle, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
Zuckerberg has steered clear of playing political favorites, and gave solely to his company's political action committee.
Facebook's corporate PAC gives to candidates in both parties, but it tilts in the GOP direction. The year-old group has doled out $267,000 in contributions, about 52% of which has gone to Republicans running for Congress.
So far, the corporate PAC also avoided giving to the presidential race. Facebook's employees haven't held back, though -- and their favored candidate is President Obama. They've funneled $71,788 in individual contributions to his campaign, while Mitt Romney collected a comparatively scant $15,750.
Facebook's network now reaches one of every 7 people on the planet.
