Mark Zuckerberg Is Now World’s Third-Richest Person
The social network giant Facebook, in addition to a social network, is also a well-oiled machine for advertising and revenue creation. Proof of this ability is now shown, with the arrival of its CEO at the top of the list of the richest men on the planet.
Mark Zuckerberg, the co-founder of the social network giant Facebook, recently managed to reach third place on a restricted list featuring only the richest and most influential. This position was reached only with the appreciation of Facebook on the stock exchange.
The last few months have been tricky for the social network giant Facebook and its boss. The scandals followed and culminated in the discovery of data sharing by Cambridge Analytica, which caused the company to fall into a stock market and lose some of its dominant position.
But now, just eight months after this scandal, the social network giant Facebook has turned around again and has returned to reach a maximum stock market valuation. Last Friday its shares were worth $203.23.
This appreciation appears to be in favor of Mark Zuckerberg, who saw his personal fortunes rise again, now reaching $81.6 billion, and securing him the third position in the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.
Below Mark Zuckerberg is Warren Buffett, the man who has dominated this list and who has downed his fortune with several donations, notably for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The difference between Mark Zuckerberg and Warren Buffett is now 373 million.
At the top of this list are two of the most well-known technology business tycoons. Yes, I am talking about Jeff Bezos, with a fortune valued at 142 billion dollars, and Bill Gates, with a personal fortune of 94.2 billion dollars.
After several years dominated by Warren Buffett, who lost the top spot with his donations, it is now the turn of this list to be controlled by 3 tycoons of technology. Curiously, Mark Zuckerberg also promised to donate 99% of his Facebook shares, something that has not happened yet.
