Forbes magazine world's mega-rich...
Forbes magazine released its list of the world's mega-rich Wednesday and said Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, 23, became the youngest ever self-made billionaire.
Zuckerberg, who turns 24 in May, is worth $1.5 billion four years after launching the social networking site and the third-youngest to crack the billionaire list since Forbes began tracking ages a decade ago.
Warren Buffett dethrones Bill Gates as richest man
The Forbes list often reflects the times. Bill Gates was once himself like Zuckerberg, a Harvard dropout who left to launch a technology upstart. Gates is now 52 and slipped from first place in the rankings after being the richest person in the world for 13 consecutive years. He's now third, worth $58 billion. That's $2 billion more than last year, but was dislodged by Warren Buffett ($62 billion) and Mexican telecommunications tycoon Carlos Slim Helu ($60 billion). Buffett's Berkshire-Hathaway stock climbed $10 billion, Helu's fortune went up $11 billion.
