Who are the Youngest Billionnaires or Billionaires?

You’ve probably heard of 28-year-old Facebook CEO and founder Mark  Zuckerberg, but do you know who Dustin Moskovitz is? He’s another 28-year-old  billionaire. A Facebook alum who left the company to work on another start-up,  he has an estimated net worth  of approximately $3.5 billion, according to Forbes.

Who would have thought anyone could become a billionaire while still in their  20s without inheriting money? The Internet age has produced a new breed of rich,  with Zuckerberg leading the pack. Even after the Facebook IPO, his wealth is  estimated at $15 billion.

U.S. News and World Report recently published a list of the world’s 10  youngest billionaires. Four of them are connected to Facebook.

Aside from Zuckerberg and his college pal Moskovitz, the other two Facebook  billionaires are Sean Parker, 32, the first president of the company, and  Eduardo Saverin, 30, co-founder, each of whom have an estimated $2 billion.

Fahd and Ayman Hariri, both in their early 30s, inherited their billions from  their father, Rafic Hariri, the late prime minister of  Lebanon. Likewise,  Scott Duncan inherited approximately $4 billion from his father, who founded an  energy pipeline company.

The only woman on the list, Yang Huiyan, gained her billions from a wealth  transfer from her father, who founded a high-end real estate company in  China.
