Use of Snapchat—which Murphy cofounded with Stanford fraternity brother Evan Spiegel (No. 55)—rose during the pandemic as people relied more on social media to communicat­e. Snapchat added 55 million daily active users in the past year to reach 293 million; parent company Snap Inc. claims more than 75% of 13- to 34-year-olds in the U.S. use Snapchat. Snap shares have tripled, pushing Murphy’s fortune up by $10.5 billion.
