    Mikhail Prokhorov - whose wealth is estimated at around $US22 billion plans to spend $US150 million setting up a magazine, website and television station called Snob, the general director of the new venture told Reuters today. "Its for people who are successful and those who want to be successful," said Andrei Shmarov, who will run Snob. Prokhorov, 42, made his fortune in the chaotic 1990s when businessmen bought up parts of former Soviet industries for a fraction of their real value. The Forbes Rich List ranked Prokhorov as the 24th richest person in the world. He is one of the owners of Norilsk Nickel, the worlds biggest nickel producer, and Polyus Gold, Russias biggest gold producer.

As per the same source, the USA was ranking first at the end of 2007 with five million more users than those in China.
