Tech billionaire and co-founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, saw a reduction in his fortune after his tech products, Facebook, Instagram, and Whatsapp, went down for about 6 hours on Monday.
This caused the billionaire a whopping $7 billion as the shares of Facebook fell by 4.9%. However, looking at his overall net worth, losing $7 billion was not much of a big deal to the Facebook co-founder. This however caused him to slip down the billionaire rich list all the way to number 6.
The social media platforms went down after a whistleblower is said to have come forward. Zuckerberg later apologized for the incident on Facebook after it went back online. This was followed by both WhatsApp and Instagram.
