Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has replaced Warren Buffett as the third-richest person in the world.

The Facebook CEO jumped ahead on Friday with a net worth of $81.6 billion, according to calculations by Bloomberg.  

That put him about $373 million in front of Buffett, the legendary investor and Berkshire Hathaway (BRKA) CEO.

Zuckerberg claimed the No 3 spot on the Bloomberg Billionaires Index because Facebook (FB) shares rose 2.4%. The stock has spiked about 15% this year, according to the CNN report.

For the first time, the three richest people alive are all tech titans. Amazon's Jeff Bezos, worth about $141 billion, is first, followed by Microsoft (MSFT) founder Bill Gates, according to the Bloomberg index.
