Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s net worth reaches record high


Facebook CEO and co-founder Mark Zuckerberg saw his net worth reach a record high of $66.7 billion over the weekend after shares of the social network’s stock continued to climb last week.

Forbes, which provides a ranking of the world’s billionaires based on their net worth, says that the 33-year-old tech titan is currently the 6th richest person in the world.

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates topped that list followed by Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and Amancio Ortega, co-founder of the retail giant retail giant Inditex. Gates’ is worth more than $90 billion, according to Forbes.

But can Facebook’s stock continue climbing for long?

The tech firm’s shares rose to more than $160 per share on Monday, but the stock is currently down 0.43 percent at $159.26 per share.

Facebook is scheduled to report its second quarter earnings on July 26.
