Mark Zuckerberg Is NOT One Of America’s Ten Wealthiest People For The First Time Since 2015
Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg is not one of America’s ten wealthiest people for the first time since 2015, thanks to his company’s plummeting stock price over the last year.
The 38-year-old Facebook founder has lost more than half his fortune – amounting to $76.8 billion – since September of last year, which led him to drop from number three to number 11 on the Forbes 400 list of America’s wealthiest people.
Zuckerberg’s net worth stands at $57.7 billion as of today.
The Forbes 400 list is topped by Elon Musk, worth $251 billion, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, worth $151 billion and Microsoft founder Bill Gates, worth $106 billion.
Musk, how is Tesla’s CEO and SpaceX’s founder, also cofounded the Boring Company and may end up owning Twitter, pending the outcome of litigation.
Software mogul Larry Ellison sits at number four with $101 million, just above investor Warren Buffet at $97 billion.
Alphabet co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, who also saw their net worth drop, take the fourth and fifth spots. Ex-Microsoft CEO Steve Balmer sits at number eight with a worth of $83 billion.
Other than Musk, the only other person in the top ten to see their fortune increase is Michael Bloomberg.
Jim Walton, the youngest son of Walmart founder Sam Walton, rounds out the top ten with a worth of $57.9 billion.
Zuckerberg became a billionaire in 2008 at the age of 23. He debuted on the Forbes 400 list at number 321 with a worth of $1.5 billion.
