Mark Zuckerberg Is Now a Centibillionaire

Share on Facebook

Many of us tend to forget about the monopoly that Mark Zuckerberg holds over the majority of social media platforms. Alongside Facebook, which is likely going to go down in history as his greatest achievement, he also holds two of the other most popular social media apps out there.

So it’s no wonder that Zuckerberg is raking it in. But now he’s joined the ranks of Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates with his new title…

Founded in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in 2004, it is considered one of the Big Four media giants alongside Amazon, Apple, and Google.

In the early ’00s, pretty much everyone was a Facebook addict, spending hours writing on one another’s walls and “poking” each other.

The 2010 biographical drama movie, The Social Network, told the story of how the company was founded by Harvard student, Mark Zuckerberg. The movie starred Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield, Armie Hammer, and Justin Timberlake.

And one of the areas in which the Facebook empire has truly excelled in is through clever choices of acquisitions.

The purchase cost one billion dollars and was one of the most expensive social media spends to date. But it’s clear that it paid dividends, as Instagram has only grown in popularity since 2012.

In 2014, Facebook acquired chat platform, WhatsApp, for a whopping nineteen billion dollars. Woah. 

For the most part, it seems as though most of us tend to forget that the three are even connected. At least until the server goes down and they all crash at once, that is.

What used to be a trendy app filled with college students and other young, cool people is now almost exclusively populated by older generations who can’t quite get the hang of the internet.

It seems that almost no one actually uses Facebook as a social networking platform anymore and tend to rely on other methods to communicate with their friends.

Other social media platforms are getting more and more popular by the day. And these include Facebook-owned platforms, Instagram and Whatsapp.

Sure, he owns an absolute ton of tech companies. But Facebook will always be his baby, right?

In order to make sure that his Facebook brand never dies, Zuckerberg has decided to use what he has: two of the most popular and fastest-growing social media platforms out there.

Because it seems as though it may not be led by good sense, and, instead, is an emotional reaction by Zuckerberg to the decline of Facebook.

Rather than actually changing the names of Instagram or WhatsApp, Zuckerberg is, instead, adding a suffix. His addition of choice? “From Facebook.”

They believe that Facebook is hoping to utilize its sister companies, Instagram and Whatsapp, as a means of gaining some cool points.

Adding “from Facebook” to these snappy and recognizably-named apps just seems to reflect the mistakes that Zuckerberg made when naming Facebook in the beginning – overcomplicating things.

As the Bloomberg Billionaires Index has just made a huge announcement.

This means his fortune has surpassed 100 billion dollars.

It’s a truly mindboggling amount of wealth.

Which, if Trump has his way, will be outlawed soon …

And it’s launch has coincided with this enormous jump in Zuckerberg’s worth. Read on if you want to see what Zuckerberg’s 100 million dollar property looks like.
