Mark Zuckerberg joins Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates in the exclusive club of those who own over $ 100 billion. There is talk of personal wealth, not of the company or companies founded or controlled. The venture succeeded the founder of Facebook a few hours after the launch of Instagram Reels, a new software service that aims to copy TikTok and counter its huge success. Launched Reels, Facebook's share value grew six percentage points. That was enough for Zuckerberg, who owns 13% of the company's shares, to reach the same order of magnitude as the founder of Amazon and the (now retired) founder of Microsoft.
Zuckerberg, like Gates and many others, has signed the so-called "Giving Pledge": created by Gates and his wife Melinda, it is a commitment that billionaires make to donate the vast majority of their wealth to charity. Zuckerberg has already said 99% of his fortune will go to charity. Other signatories (it is worth noting that this is not a legally binding contract) include Paul Allen, another founder of Microsoft, and Elon Musk; Bezos is not there, but his ex-wife, who became a billionaire thanks to the divorce, yes.
The figures, it should be remembered, are unofficial estimates drawn up by Bloomberg. Currently, Bezos has a huge advantage over the other two, with 190 billion; Bill Gates is second with a great gap, 120 billion, while Zuckerberg stops at 100 billion rounds. In sixth position we find another ex-illustrious Microsoft, Steve Ballmer, with 77.7 billion; Larry Page, Elon Musk and Sergey Brin close the top 10, with 71.6, 70.2 and 69.4 billion respectively.
