We do wonder what it is like to be 26 years old and have a net worth of $6.9 billion. Seems like a pretty awesome problem to have. Forbes is reporting that Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg is now ranked thirty-fifth on the Forbes 400 list; a list that details the richest Americans. One notable tech persona that Mr. Zuckerberg leapfrogged is Apple CEO Steve Jobs. Mr. Jobs is currently ranked forty-second on the list with an estimated net-worth of $6.1 billion. The young, social-networking tycoon isn’t just hoarding his cash though. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that the Facebook CEO is expected to announce a $100 million donation to the Newark Public School System. Currently the Newark, NJ system is the lowest performing system in the country; only half of its 40,000 students graduate high school. Nice work Mr. Zuckerburg, we’ll hit the proverbial “like” button for your charitable works.
