‘Bloomberg’ estimates that the creator of Facebook now accumulates 121 billion dollars, making it the fifth richest on the planet, behind Bill Gates.

The fortune of the CEO and co-founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, was reduced this Monday by about 5.9 billion dollars after a bad session on Wall Street in which the social network, affected by a scandal about its unethical practices and due to a worldwide interruption of its services, it fell about 4.9 percent.

According to Forbes figures, this decline means that Zuckerberg’s fortune has reached 117 billion dollars, relegating him to the sixth place among the richest people in the world. Bloomberg, for his part, estimates that the creator of Facebook now accumulates 121 billion dollars, making him the fifth richest on the planet, behind Bill Gates.

In total, Facebook has lost 7.74 percent on Wall Street in the past five days, and more than 13 percent in the past month. The shares of the social network were weighed down on Wall Street this Monday by the interruption of the service of Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp worldwide, an incident that has lasted for several hours and of which the cause is unknown so far.
