Mark Zuckerburg loses $7Billon amid the social media outage

Amid a 6-hour outage of Facebook, Whatsapp, and Instagram services around the world, the co-founder Mark Zuckerberg took to the internet to apologize for the "disruption." The interruption also lost Zuckerberg a lot of money, as his personal wealth plunged by $7 billion in just a few hours.

According to a media storey, after Facebook stocks plummeted during the outage, Zuckerberg fell to fifth place on the billionaire list. He is second only to Bill Gates in terms of wealth, at $121.6 billion.

The outage, according to reports, was caused by an issue in Facebook's domain name system (DNS) records. The vulnerability is most likely caused by a faulty configuration or code push to the network management system according to the industry specialists.
