Other than Warren Buffett and Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg is probably the most recognizable American business mogul. The 32-year-old multi-billionaire is famously powerful because his social media platform has over a billion users. It wasn't the first such platform but it's the biggest and it has become a powerful tool for publishers, influencers, and even politicians.
