Mark Zuckerberg, Dustin Moskovitz, Eduardo Saverin, Sean Parker, Yuri Milner and Peter Thiel are all on the Forbes' billionaires list in large part due to Facebook's current valuation of about $50-60 billion, according to New York Magazine.
Some of these names may sound familiar after the Academy Award-winning movie, The Social Network, documented the inception of Facebook.
The public may know Eduardo Saverin as the one-time friend of Facebook-founder, Zuckerberg, who was pushed to the side as the company grew. However, due to his agreement with Facebook, Saverin is still worth $1.6 billion, according to Forbes.
“Shed no tears for Eduardo. If you do get to be thrown out, a billion dollars isn’t a bad severance package,” Steve Forbes, the editor-in-chief of Forbes Magazine, told the Guardian.
Zuckerberg retains a 25 percent stake in Facebook and is reportedly worth $13.5 billion, according to Forbes.
Tech entrepreneur Sean Parker, who was played by Justin Timberlake in the movie, is also worth $1.6 billion. Peter Thiel and Yuri Milner were investors in Facebook, and Dustin Moskovitz is a co-founder who later split from Zuckerberg and founded his own company.
At 26-years-old, and eight days younger than Zuckerberg, Moskovitz is the youngest billionaire in the world.
Much of the Facebook 6's fortune comes from the January 2011 Goldman Sachs deal which injected $1.5 billion in cash into Facebook, raising the value of the company to $50 billion.
Facebook is still a private company, but the current secondary market values the social networking giant at about $65 billion, according to New York Magazine.
The richest man in the world is Carlos Slim Helu, the Mexican telecommunications magnate, worth $74 billion. Bill Gates is number two at $56 billion, and Warren Buffet has $50 billion.
