Obviously if you create Facebook, you’re going to be reaping the monetary benefits. Mark Zuckerberg has done exactly that, and gone far beyond — into the billions and billions of dollars. He’s one of the richest people in the world, and still so so young — just 32 years old today. Literally, today is his birthday. And on his birthday, NBC News have estimated his fortune to be a whopping $51.8 billion. Then because of his youth, he’s making more money per day than anyone else. Anyone else, on the entire planet, that is.

According to CNBC calculations, Mark’s combination of fresh-faced youth and exorbitant wealth average out to — wait for it — $4.4 million dollars for EVERY DAY HE’S BEEN ALIVE. That figure is just… unimaginable. It doesn’t seem real.

Yet, it is. And in case you were wondering, that rate trumps all the other gigantic rates on Forbes’ list of billionaires, such as Microsoft’s Bill Gates, and the teams from Amazon and Google.

So, yeah. Things are looking pretty perfect for Mark in his professional life. To make us even more jealous of him, his personal life is also going swimmingly, as his wife Pricilla recently gave birth to their first child, a daughter named Max.

In all honesty though, we’re happy for Mark. His success story is inspiring, and it’s pleasing that he actually seems to be a nice, generous person as well. At the end of the day, that is what really matters. Happy birthday, Mark! Treat yourself to a different colored t-shirt, perhaps.
