Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg is now officially the 6th richest person in the world. With only 31 years old, he is also the youngest in the US richer room.
His net worth increased from $4.85 million and has reached $47.25 billion, enough to surpass the $45.9 billion holdings of brothers, Charles and David Koch, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.
During Wednesday’s earning call, Facebook announced that it had beat revenue and earnings forecasts for the fourth quarter 2015. Revenue was up 52% in the fourth quarter, with mobile revenue accounting for 80% of the total $5.84 billion in revenue. Facebook’s user growth increased 17% in the past year.
