Mark Zuckerberg Becomes the third Richest Man on the planet

Facebook Inc. co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg has overtaken Warren Buffett as the world’s third-richest person, further solidifying technology as the most main stay for wealth.

It’s the first time that the three wealthiest people on the ranking made their fortunes from technology. Zuckerberg, 34, is now worth $81.6 billion, about $373 million more than Buffett, the 87-year-old chairman and chief executive officer of Berkshire Hathaway Inc.

Zuckerberg, who trails only Amazon.com Inc. founder Jeff Bezos and Microsoft Corp. co-founder Bill Gates, eclipsed Buffett Friday as Facebook shares climbed 2.4 percent, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.
