In a major financial boost, Mark Zuckerberg’s fortune experienced an astounding surge of $4.6 billion on Thursday. The significant growth came following Meta’s impressive second-quarter earnings report, aligning him with other tech billionaires, including those at Alphabet, who are profiting from a resurgence in advertising spending.
