    The 26-year-old founder of Facebook has been placed fourth in an annual list ranking the world’s top businesspeople by Fortune magazine.

    Harvard dropout Mark Zuckerberg, who created the influential social networking site from his college dorm-room in 2004, is the highest ranked Jewish businessman on the list.

    The list also includes the CEOs of Starbucks and Kraft Foods, Howard Schultz and Irene Rosenfeld.

    Ms Rosenfeld, who last month was named the second most powerful woman in the world by Forbes magazine, is one of only three women on Fortune’s list of 50.

    Israeli businessman and former IDF general Shlomo Yanai, who runs the Teva Pharmaceutical company, was placed at number 20. The Jewish co-founder of business networking site LinkedIn, Reid Hoffman, was listed at number 41.

    Ari Emanuel, the Hollywood agent and brother of President Barack Obama’s former chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, is placed at joint 49th on the list.

    Mr Emanuel is said to be the inspiration behind the character of Ari Gold on the television series Entourage.
