Black day for Zuckerberg
This Monday, the Facebook crash was just a cherry on the cake for Zuckerberg.
Hours earlier, a former employee noted that Facebook works by prioritizing hate speech and fake news , sometimes preferring interactions over people’s relationships.
During the day, the company has suffered a decline in the stock market, with a sale of shares of 5%.
According to Bloomberg, Mark Zuckerberg’s wealth is now down to $ 120.9 billion , making him the fifth richest person in the world behind Bill Gates.
