A NZ Herald article.
Facebook’s share price has been walloped by today’s outage, stripping billions out of company CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s personal fortune.
Business publication Forbes reported that Zuckerberg has lost US$5.9 billion ($8.5 billion) off the back of the global outage of Facebook, Instagram and Whatsapp.
This still leaves Zuckerberg with a cool fortune of around US$117 billion.
The company’s share price slipped 4.8 per cent off the back of the outage.
