Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg -- a White Plains native who grew up in Dobbs Ferry and attended Ardsley High School -- added over $3 billion to his fortune on Wednesday, after Facebook announced higher-than-anticipated quarterly revenues, Forbes has reported.

This brings Zuckerberg's net worth to over $56.7 billion, Forbes reports. He remains the fifth-richest person in the world, after Jeff Bezos.
