Mark Zuckerberg is now the third-richest person in the world. The Facebook CEO jumped ahead on Friday with a net worth of $81.6 billion, according to calculations by Bloomberg.
That put him about $373 million in front of Buffett, an American business magnate, investor, and philanthropist who serves as the chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway.
For the first time, the three richest people alive are all tech titans. Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, worth about $141 billion, is first, followed by Microsoft (MSFT) founder Bill Gates, according to the Bloomberg index.
Mark claimed the No. 3 spot on the Bloomberg Billionaires Index because Facebook (FB) shares rose 2.4%. Tech stocks have been doing greatly in the market this year. Netflix has more than doubled, Amazon has surged 46%, Apple is up about 11%, and Google has gained 9%.
