WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, the White Plains native who grew up in Dobbs Ferry, has an unlikely friend in New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

Zuckerberg, 30, who attended Ardsley High School, and Christie, 52, can relate with some aspects of Christie’s life.

Christie goes through a lot of back doors for security. Zuckerberg is also known to have lots of security.

Last week, Zuckerberg "liked" a video that Christie put up on his official Facebook page for a town-hall meeting this week. "“I love this,” Zuckerberg said on the page.

MarketWatch said the Christie/Zuckerberg connection dates back a few years. Zuckerberg hosted a political fundraiser in February 2013 at his Palo Alto, Calif., home with an event for the governor. In August 2014, Zuckerberg took on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge after being nominated by Christie.
