Mark Zuckerberg the CEO of Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) is without a doubt one of the most powerful men and youngest billionaires of our time, but how does he stack up against his competition?
This graphic compares data against the top 5 youngest billionaires to give us an inside look at their wealth, their age, and how they’re worth their fortune. Some of these stats may surprise you; for example, 3 out of the 5 youngest billionaires inherited their fortune from their family passing away; the only two completely self made billionaires are Mark Zuckerberg and the creator of the mobile gaming service and social network, Yoshikazu Tanaka. These 5 people combined are worth a staggering 40 billion dollars; when stacked, it is taller than the tallest building on the planet.
With Facebook’s recent IPO going public, Mark Zuckerberg’s fortune has been a popular subject lately. Being the owner of the second most visited website in the world, and with a 28.2% stock holding in Facebook Inc., he is worth over 17 billion dollars at only age 28. Mark, up until recently, was the worlds youngest billionaire, until 27-year old Dustin Moskovitz took the crown with a 3.5 billion dollar net worth as of spring 2012.
This new infograph (credit to Boostlikes.com) breaks down just how wealthy these 5 young billionaires are, and sheds some light on how vast their fortune is. Don’t be surprised when you find out you’d have to work nearly 1,000 lifetimes just to match the last person on the list, at a staggering $4.3 billion dollars.
