Mark Zuckerberg

Despite the pandemic’s blow to the economy, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s net worth grew by $32.8 billion since March 17. The surge in Zuckerberg’s net worth has earned him the title of the 3rd-richest person in the world. Zuckerberg was worth a paltry $56.3 billion on 17 March 2020, according to estimates.

Zuckerberg is now worth an estimated $89.1 billion, rising above billionaires like BBernard Arnault (net worth: $80.4 billion), Warren Buffett (net worth: $69.2 billion), and Larry Page (net worth: $67.1 billion). Facebook reported better-than-expected first-quarter earnings on April 29.

Facebook beat Wall Street expectations in revenue and daily active users, generating $17.74 billion and attracting 1.73 billion users in the first three months of 2020. Zuckerberg is third on the list of the richest people behind Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos (net worth: $147 billion) and Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates (net worth: $108 billion).

So, how much we talking?

Try $89.1 billion.
