Mark Zuckerberg Falls To No. 66 On ‘Forbes’ Billionaires List

Although Facebook Co-Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg is still the second-youngest billionaire in the world (to fellow Co-Founder Dustin Moskovitz), he plummeted on Forbes‘ list of the richest people in the world. Zuckerberg went from No. 35 in 2012 to No. 66 this year, according to figures released by Forbes Monday.

Zuckerberg is worth $13.3 billion, which is still impressive, but he was at $17.5 billion last year. Since taking Facebook public in 2012, he has seen his personal value fluctuate much like the company’s stock price. Both appear to be doing a little healthier.

Zuckerberg is just eight days older than the youngest billionaire on Forbes‘ list, Moskovitz. With a net value of $3.8 billion, the CEO of Asana is the 353rd-richest person in the world. Another Facebook co-founder, Eduardo Saverin, checks in at No. 670 with a worth of $2.2 billion. Sean Parker, Facebook’s first president and the controversial founder of Napster, is worth $2 billion — the 736th-richest person on Earth.

Yet again, the richest person in the world is Mexican telecommunications magnate Carlos Slim Helu, who is worth $73 billion.
