Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook looks more worthy enough than Apple’s Steve Jobs. Mark, 26, took him only a few years to cross Steve Jobs in entering the billionaire’s list. Mark is now seen as one of the most successful internet website tycoon of the decade. His Facebook is present almost everywhere and that the website popularity has reached new shores.
America released a new list of the richest people in the country, in which Bill Gates of Microsoft and Warren Buffet topped the list. Bill Gates is worth $54 billion and Warren is worth $45 billion. On the other hand Mark Zuckerburg is said to have compiled some $6.9 billion crossing Steve Jobs who is at $6.1 billion.
Looking at Mark, he is very young today, and at the pace he and his website is growing, it seems he will be crossing some other billionaires on the Forbes list. Today he is an example to many young people, and as for Mark he is one guy who has gained more popularity than Steve Jobs and many other people in the tech world. He indeed is worth the cash stockpile.

It is reported that Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook founder and CEO will be donating a huge sum of $100 million to the Newark Schools in New Jersey, on the Oprah Winfrey Show. Its a very generous and strong move by Mark, as this will be providing great help to this school system, as it is known to be one of the most troubled school systems in the US.
The announcement of the donation will be done on the Oprah Winfrey Show, along with the Newark Mayor Cory Booker. It is stated that Newark Schools are performing very low and that there is much improvement needed in the system.
Personally, Mark has no formal or informal connections with Newark, but he himself is a youngster and his help will be of great importance to improve the school system of America. At the Newark Schools, where some 40000 pupil study, it was reported that less than half of them are able to graduate properly. Poor performance and bad academy has shrouded the Newark School system since a long time now.
