Jakarta, CNN Indonesia –
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is part of the centimillionaire club group. This club is made up of people with a net worth of more than US $ 100 billion (around Rp1,460 trillion, at the current Rupiah exchange rate of Rp.14,600).
Quoting PageSix on Sunday (9/8), the value of Zuckerberg’s wealth soared after Facebook’s share price rose more than 6 percent.
The company’s stock has increased significantly as Facebook launched a new feature that will compete with TikTok.
This feature will be launched via Instagram. It is known, Instagram is a social media that is also owned by Facebook.
This realization exceeded the expectations of Zuckerberg’s mentor, Sean Parker.
In the scene of The Social Network, a film that releases in 2010 and tells the story of the founding of Facebook, Parker, played by Justin Timberlake, warns Zuckerberg not to sell the company for US $ 1 million.
“US $ 1 million is not cool. You know what’s cool? US $ 1 billion,” said Justin Timberlake when playing Parker in the film.
For information, Instagram officially launched a Reels feature similar to TikTok in 50 countries.
This feature allows people to record and edit 15 seconds of video connected to music and audio.
The launch of the Reels comes at a time when TikTok is considered to be blocked in the United States on suspicion of being a tool of Chinese espionage. The application has even been blocked in India.
Reels is rolling out in more than 50 countries today, including the US, UK, Japan and Australia, on both iOS and Android.
Similar to TikTok, Reels lets people create short videos that plug into music.
