A Timeline: Highs & Lows of Life of Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg

Mark Zuckerberg first appeared on Forbes Billionaires list in 2008 with a net worth of $1.5 billion. He has come a long way up the ranks since then, but it hasn’t come without controversy.
As the CEO of Facebook, he can be credited for creating a social network that has more monthly active users than the population of any single country in the world. But last year he faced numerous scandals.
From being summoned to give testimony to Congress, to losing $15 billion in wealth in a single day, this graphic reveals Zuckerberg’s Google search interest over time.
