Several countries have felt the adverse effects of coronavirus pandemic with critical sectors worldwide affected by the impact.

But for Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, the reverse appears to be the case as the pandemic period has opened a new opportunity for a rise in his income.

Zuckerberg added more than $30bn to his wealth in two months earning him the title of the third richest in the world. According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index ranking updated on May 21, Zuckerberg is now worth an estimated $87.8bn, placing him above billionaires such as Berkshire Hathaway, CEO Warren Buffet and fashion mogul, Bernard Arnault.

Most corporations experienced a dip in their income due to the drop in economic activities which has seen nearly 40 million US workers laid off. Facebook beat Wall Street expectations in revenue and daily active users, generating $17.74bn and attracting 1.73bn users in the first three months of 2020. The company also reported it had reached three billion monthly users across its family of apps which include Instagram, WhatsApp, and Messenger. Facebook stock has jumped as much as eight, netting the company $44bn in market value.

In mid-March, Zuckerberg was worth $57.5bn and placed fifth on the list of the world’s richest but the lockdown increased his financial worth.

Zuckerbeg also recently stated that Facebbok would be giving out $10m to groups fighting racial injustice in the wake of George Floyds death.

Like a normal kid

Mark Zuckerberg was born on May 14, 1984 to a psychiatric and dentist parents, Karen and Edwards Zuckerberg. When thinking about Zuckerberg’s childhood, one would find it hard to imagine a little kid living a normal life with his three sisters in a small county in New York.

Zuckerberg was raised in a Reform Jewish household, and his forebears hailed from Germany, Austria, and Poland. Zuckerberg has always shown signs of extraordinary brilliance even from his high school days. He attended a public high school before transferring to a private school where he won prizes in mathematics, astronomy, physics, and classical studies. Contrary to notions that he probably didn’t have a social life, Zuckerberg was the captain of the school’s fencing team.

Zuckerberg attended the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth summer camp, an education program for academically advanced children within the school age. Basically the program isn’t for the average kid, but kids who demonstrate an intelligence that’s unparalleled by their age mates. On his college application, Zuckerberg stated that he could read and write French, Hebrew, Latin, and ancient Greek.

Black and Latino custodial workers @ the Capitol Bldg said it was degrading to clean up the debris left by white supremacist who violently stormed the Capitol Bldg. They even had to clean up smeared feces. One staffer said they were used to cleaning up after white supremacist (referring to racist Congressional members). Those who were there that day feared for their life b/c they weren't given any protection.
Mother Jones posted a list of "law makers" nationwide who promoted/assisted in the insurrection on our government. ALL should be ousted, stripped of pensions, charged with sedition and felony murder.
If black folks are present at a crime, whether they participated or not, they're charged with as many violations as white folks can conjure up. Felony murder is top of their list. Why not for white domestic terrorist?
25,000 National Guardsmen are set up to protect for Biden/Harris inauguration! Authorities are AGAIN saying that white domestic terrorist are the largest threat in American and to the democratic process.
NOT Black Lives Matter protestors, NOT even foreign terrorist, but American grown white men who are angry about all the white privilege they have.
Twitter is now locking accounts for unusual activity when there is no unusual activity. Apparently if you post to much to soon, it triggers their spider hairs. Never mind that it's (or was) a platform to post information and opinions, now it's just a flat bed from the ghost-of-trump-past. Jack Dorsey/Twitter should be charged with giving trump the media to incite a resurrection against the United States government.
18 family members tested positive for COVID after a holiday party in Pennsylvania, including a one year old baby. YES of course they were white. The mother knew she had "something", but during a world pandemic she didn't think it was COVID. This is insane! They just keep spreading it!
