Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg is TIME Person of the Year (2010)
December 16, 2010 by cd
TIME Magazine named Mark Zuckerberg as Person of the Year for “wiring together a twelfth of humanity.”
The co-founder (if you watched the film “The Social Network”, we can say he’s the sole-founder) of Facebook, the biggest social network with more than 500 million users and now one of the leading Internet companies in the world, is TIME’s Person of the Year for 2010.
Mark Zuckerberg bested WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, the Tea Party, Afghan President Hamid Karzai, and the Chilean miners. He is now one of the world’s youngest billionaires, and he pledged to give the majority of his wealth to charity.
“For connecting more than half a billion people and mapping the social relations among them; for creating a new system of exchanging information; and for changing how we all live our lives, Mark Elliot Zuckerberg is Time’s 2010 Person of the Year,” explains TIME for making Zuckerberg their honorable coverboy.
