Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram’s global outage yesterday cost Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg dearly, losing $ 6.11 billion in just the past day and dropping to fifth place on Bloomberg’s list of billionaires on the planet.

On Monday, after the company was forced to shut down its services for more than six hours, Facebook shares fell 4.9%. The services started working on Tuesday night, the cause of the incident was called “incorrect configuration change” of the routers, but these few hours were enough to scare investors and start selling off Facebook shares. And the company’s securities are already under pressure from investigations in Europe and the United States. For example, US senators are seriously and with particular bias considering the issue of “toxicity” of Instagram for adolescents.

Bloomberg Billionaire Ranking

According to Bloomberg, Zuckerberg is now ranked fifth in the ranking of the richest people on the planet – he was previously in fourth place, but now he is behind Bill Gates. According to Forbes, Zuckerberg has completely moved to sixth place: in this ranking, not only Bill Gates, but also Larry Ellison is ahead of him. Interestingly, back in August, Zuckerberg’s fortune was $ 142 billion, and now it is already $ 122 billion. The billionaire is rapidly becoming impoverished.

And he is still the richest man in the world, just by a wider margin than second-ranked Jeff Bezos.
