Mark Zuckerberg Of All The Richest Sees Sharpest Drop In Fortune In 2018

Facebook stumbled quite a bit this year, and CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s fortune took a hit.

Zuckerberg’s net worth fell nearly $20 billion, making his the largest drop in fortune in 2018, Bloomberg reported. But don’t feel too bad for the 34-year-old: He’s still worth $53 billion.

He wasn’t alone in his loss. American billionaires saw the biggest drop this year, according to Bloomberg. Together this group lost $76 billion, mostly due to December’s market.
