Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is planning to take two months paternity leave the birth his daughter. This sends a strong message to all would-be fathers to get involved the earliest stages their newborn's life. Zuckerberg is only taking half the time Facebook grants to male employees paternity leave. Nevertheless, it sets a positive example to men worldwide the responsibilities of fatherhood. The Facebook CEO wrote his own Facebook page: "This is a very personal decision. Studies show that when working parents take time to be their newborns, outcomes are better the children and families." He added: "We're excited to start this next stage our lives."

the past few decades, more and more companies have been giving men fully paid paternity leave. However, many men appear somewhat reluctant to take advantage this benefit. Technology companies are often the forefront looking employees, but even their male employees have been hesitant to utilise the perk. Many male workers prefer to continue working of fear of falling behind projects or missing out promotions. Just 2 per cent of businesses the UK reported a significant increase the amount paternity leave taken recently. Chris Parke, an employment specialist London, offered some advice for men who were unsure taking paternity leave: "Be courageous," he said.
