New Delhi: Mark Zuckerberg’s personal wealth has fallen by nearly $7 billion in a few hours, dropping him down to the 5th spot in the billionaires’ list, according to Bloomberg’s Scott Carpenter.
Notably, a flurry of companies pulled advertising from Facebook Inc.’s network after the social media giant apps like WhatsApp, Instagram and messenger suffered a major global outage yesterday. Zuckerberg with a total wealth of $121.6 billion has fallen behind Bill Gates.
Previously, he was at the third spot on Bloomberg’s Billionaires Index. According to Bloomberg, the stocks of Facebook fell by 5% on Monday, adding to a 15 percent decline since mid-September.
