Update: Facebook’s stock drop last week has gone down as the biggest single-day loss in the history of the stock market.

In 2000 Intel lost $90 billion a day, and in the same year, Microsoft lost $80 billion..
.According to Bloomberg, Mark Zuckerberg lost $16.8 Billion in an instant after Facebook stock prices dropped.
The shares for Facebook reportedly dropped 20 percent. The massive drop caused the company to lose almost $100 billion in market value according to reports Because of major $16 billion loss, Zuckerberg moved down on the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.

Zuckerberg’s billion-dollar drop now puts him at number six on the world billionaires list, with a net worth of almost $70 billion.
