"No," he told BuzzFeed. "I’m focused on building our community at Facebook and working on the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative."

The billionaire Facebook CEO first sparked intrigue when he proposed a company stock reclassification that would let him serve in government without losing his majority voting rights.
