Washington, March 05:

Founders of social networking giant Facebook, Dustin Moskovitz and Mark Zuckerberg, are the youngest on the list of the world’s billionaires, according to a survey.

According to the list released by Forbes, Moskovitz and Mark Zuckerberg, at the tender age of 28, are the youngest billionaires, with net worths of 3.8 billion dollars and 13.3 billion dollars respectively.

Eduardo Saverin, who also co-founded the site, is fifth youngest at 30 and worth 2.2 billion dollars, according to the list.

According to Fox News, joining them in the list of the five youngest billionaires are Scott Duncan, who inherited the massive fortune of late energy pipeline entrepreneur Dan Duncan, and Albert von Thurn und Taxis, who also inherited a vast wealth.

Another Facebook alum numbers in the top ten youngest, however: Sean Parker, the founder of music-sharing website Napster and Facebook’s first president. Parker is 33, and worth $2 billion, Forbes said.

Mexican business magnate Carlos Slim Helu and his family top the overall ‘world’s top billionaires’ list, with a staggering net worth of 73 billion dollars, the report said.

Bill Gates sits pretty in second place, with a net worth of 67 billion dollars, it added.
