Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg joins Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos in the 'Centibillionaire Club'


Recommended Posts

The Facebook chief executive and co-founder joins the "Centibillionaire Club", which already includes Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates.

 

Mark Zuckerberg has seen his personal wealth hit $100bn (£76bn), 16 years after he co-founded Facebook from his university dorm room.

 

He joins Amazon's Jeff Bezos and Microsoft's Bill Gates in the "Centibillionaire Club".

 

The latest boost to Zuckerberg's wealth came after Facebook launched a new short-form video feature on Wednesday.

 

Instagram Reels is a rival to Chinese app TikTok and it prompted Facebook shares to jump more than 6% on Thursday, having risen by almost 30% this year.

 

Mr Zuckerberg owns 13% of Facebook and the social media platform owns Instagram.

 

The 36-year-old's personal wealth has gained about $22bn (£16.8bn) this year, while Mr Bezos's has grown by more than $75bn (£57bn), according to Bloomberg.

The funny thing is both Gates and Zuckerberg stole their software from someone else.

 

Only Bezos did not screw others over in becoming a billionaire.

 

You have to admire people like Bezos though who from nothing become billionaires through their own hard work, drive and brains.

And all the while normal (real) people struggle more than ever. Not to pour scorn on success but Zuckerberg got his through shafting the Winkelvoss', while Bezos has massively increased his wealth over virus times by screwing his affiliates by 50%. Way to go. Putin is also in this 'cent' bracket btw. I hope there is no judgement day as these guys are gonners.

 

The only honourable mention here is Gates who, though folk love to loathe him, has given massive amounts and is a nice person.  

Gates is a nice guy? You must be trippin’

All of these guys are nasty in their own way and yes, it is a role of the government to mediate these predators.

That being said, no one is making us buy their offerings or services as we have Free Will to make our own choices. We can choose social media like MeWe and dump our addiction to Facebook.   Each time we use FB we make Mark richer.

 

We can protest against Bill Gates and vaccines as they are proven over and over again to be deadly which is supported by the fact that at least in the USA, $4,000,000,000 has been paid to the families whose children died or were seriously impaired from the vaccines they received.   Bill Gates admits to his desire to lower the population of the world to 500,000,000 people and you can see on Youtube.

 

Amazon is one of many companies to buy from and many of us bought into the convenience of buying from them even though we can support locals like Lazada or Ali Express or more.   

 

We, individually and/or collectively, can boycott any of these companies anytime and together we make a difference.

What do you actually do when you have that much cash?........Eat live babies for kicks?  Fire horses out of canons?  Breed skunks with fish......Would you not just help folks who needed help?

They all have philanthropic foundations

Zuckerberg is a nasty piece of work.  First, he stole from the twins.  Then, he cheated Saverin by trying to squeeze him out by reducing Saverin's holdings.  I just hope that Zuckerberg's "karma" eventually catches up with him ... in a big way!

Bend government rules/ laws/ lawmakers to your benefit so you can make more. Open your mouth wider and gobble more. Kill or absorb or copy anything that threatens you. Lotsa fun things. Why care about ordinary people they don't do anything for him? Oh, wait a minute.
