Mark Zuckerberg is Worth More Than Steve Jobs

You might think Facebook is a useless waste of time, but it's definitely proved useful for at least one 20-something. CEO Mark Zuckerberg is filthy rich. In fact, Facebook has served him so well he's no longer a millionaire. Zuckerberg has moved on to even greener pastures and can now count himself among the top fifty billionaires in the United States.

Forbes just released its annual list of the richest people in the America and, unsurprisingly, Bill Gates and Warren Buffet snagged the top two spots with net worths of $54 billion and $45 billion, respectively. Third place was assumed by Larry Ellison, CEO of Oracle, who is worth $27 billion.

Though the list is full of interesting people who have done wonderful things, the focus is not on Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, Michael Dell, Steve Ballmer or even Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin. Instead, the biggest surprise on the list is that 26-year-old Mark Zuckerberg placed ahead of the much more renowned entrepreneur, Apple CEO Steve Jobs. Zuckerberg placed number 35 on Forbes top 400 list with an estimated net worth of $6.9 billion. Jobs and his $6.1 billion came in several spots behind, but still in the top 50, at 42.

Check out the full list here.

    Zuckerberg just gave $100M to New Jersey schools. I guess Steve can't afford that.

    Might be one of the few times I wish Jobs won.
    Not a big fan of Jobs, but definitely do not like Zuckerburg.
