Forbes has released its so-dubbed “Richest People On The Planet 2015” list, and the publication is experiencing a lot of attention on Monday, March 2, due to the list being published. Folks are just fascinated with richness, and the fact that the amount of billionaires atop this globe called Earth has swelled to 1,826 people, makes the list of the richest folks in the world all the more interesting. The Forbes list has already been shared nearly 40,000 times on Facebook, and has enjoyed more than 6,000 Twitter tweets about the enumerated list. While some familiar names top the Forbes list of billionaires — such as Bill Gates at the top spot and and Warren Buffett following him — it’s interesting to view the list of Forbes wealthy sorted by the youngest folks on the top spot, and check out their contributions to society that have made them young and rich.
As such, coming in at No. 1250 on the list of billionaires tracked by Forbes is Evan Spiegel, a man that’s listed as having a net worth of a whopping $1.5 billion. Not bad for the 24-year-old founder of Snapchat, an app that made news when Snapchat removed its best friends feature, and teens cried bloody murder, as reported by the Inquisitr. After the CEO of Snapchat, Spiegel’s buddy Bobby Murphy shows up as a 25-year-old worth $1.5 billion, also due to a wealth stream from Snapchat, also enjoying the No. 1250 position on the list.
Filling out the rest of the younger folks on the Forbes tally are Julio Mario Santo Domingo, III, a 29-year-old worth $2.2 billion. The DJ owes his fortune to his granddad’s Colombian beer at the Bavaria Brewery, which the older man sold and passed on to his progeny.
The standard Facebook billionaires also appear on Forbes, such as 30-year-old Mark Zuckerberg, worth $33.4 billion — and 30-year-old Dustin Moskovitz, worth $7.9 billion.
The stores called H&M have seemed to explode out of nowhere with folks loving the inexpensive, yet stylish fare offered by the retailers. Apparently, those purchases are making the Persson Family very wealthy. As reported by the Huffington Post, even celebrities wear H&M clothing. Tom Persson, another 30-year-old who hails from Sweden and is rich because of H&M fame appears on the list, as well as 30-year-old Anton Kathrein, Jr., who gained his $1.7 billion German fortune due to antennas.
At No. 360 comes Elizabeth Holmes, a 31-year-old worth $4.5 billion from the blood testing industry. Tatiana Casiraghi falls into No. 847, with her $2.2 billion fortune also coming from beer, a potent potable that has made the 31-year-old a billionaire. Rounding out the list of young billionaires at No. 1006 is Nathan Blecharczyk, whose $1.9 billion booty for the 31-year-old coming from Airbnb, the popular site that helps folks rent their places or find places to stay that can be more affordable than hotels.
