Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg overtook the legendary investor and Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett to become the world's 3rd richest person as per the net worth calculated by Bloomberg.

The application gathered their data and data about their friends, and then Kogan passed the data to Cambridge Analytica, according to both Cambridge Analytica and Facebook.
