Abstractly, we all know that Facebook must be a rich company. Now, with Forbes’ release of the list of the world’s billionaires, we are all given a concrete list of figures showcasing just how rich Facebook had made its founders and alums. While nowhere near the top 10 billionaires in the world, Facebook launched a stunning four of its alums into the Forbes list for the world’s youngest billionaires.
Youngest and first on the list is Dustin Moskovitz, co-founder of Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg’s former roommate. Moskovitz no longer works for Facebook but its fine as his net worth now is a whopping $3.8 billion.
Because he’s 8 days older than Moskovitz, Facebook CEO and co-founder Mark Zuckerberg place second on the list. Both Moskovitz and Zuckerberg are only 28 years old. With a net worth of $13.3 billion, Zuckerberg is undoubtedly all set for early retirement.
Another Facebook co-founder, Eduardo Saverin, snags the fifth spot on the list. Saverin is only 30 years old and has a net worth of $2.2 billion. He now spends his days as a Brazilian citizen in Singapore where he invests in startups.
The last Facebook alum on the world’s youngest billionaires’ list is Sean Parker. In contrast to the other entries, Parker is not a co-founder of Facebook, rather he served as Facebook’s first president when he was just 24 years old. Now 33 years old, Parker’s net worth is $2 billion with successes from Facebook and the company he found, Napster, under his belt.
Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes almost made the list but unfortunately did not make it yet. According to Wikipedia, Hughes net worth is around $935 million.
In comparison, Google’s Larry Page managed to snag the final spot on the top 40 youngest list by achieving an astounding net worth of $23 billion at the age of 39. Similarly, Google’s Sergey Brin also made the list with a net worth of $22.8 billion. Finally, Twitter’s Jack Dorsey also appears on the list with a net worth of $1.1 billion dollars.
With those sky high figures dancing before our eyes, it seems like the best way to be an instant billionaire is to create a game changing social network. All hail the young billionaires!
