According to the British newspaper, “Daily Mail”, the fortune of the founder of “Amazon”, Haif Bezos, increased by 14.5 billion dollars, recently, while the founder of the site “Meta” (formerly Facebook) incurred a loss of 23 billion dollars.
Amazon, founded by Bezos in 1994, benefited greatly from the dynamism of the financial market, increasing its value in the market by $145 billion.
As for the market value of Facebook, it lost $175 billion, a decline that constitutes the company’s largest daily loss ever.
In the same vein, “Netflix” also suffered a major loss, with it losing about $26 billion in market value.
On the other hand, the market value of the companies “Alphabet” (Google), “Apple” and “Microsoft” increased.
These financial fluctuations for the technology giants come after a confused start on the Wall Street Stock Exchange at the beginning of 2022, amid expectations of high interest rates.
It is noteworthy that Bezos is the second richest person in the world, with a fortune of 133 billion dollars, while the recent loss led to Zuckerberg’s exit from the top ten list.
It is estimated that Zuckerberg’s fortune is about $ 65 billion, at the present time, while figures revealed last week showed the first ever decline in the number of users of the platform.
