Mark Zuckerberg's wealth plunges by $5 Billion following Facebook Data Controversy


Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s net worth dived a whooping $5 billion on Monday, following an alleged data breach claims by some politicians.
The company’s stock fell 8%, after some U.K. and U.S. politicians criticized Facebook and its founder of sharing millions of users’ personal information, with politicians who needed it to win the 2016 US presidential polls.
According to the latest Forbes’ world wealthiest people report, Mark Zuckerberg’s net worth was about $69.5 billion at around noon on Monday, compared to just under $75 billion when the stock market closed on Friday.
This result suggests Zuckerberg’s wealth was down as much as 6.7%—a loss on paper of an astounding $5.1 billion—in a scant few hours on Monday.
