Mark Zuckerberg: Person of the Year

16 Dec

Say hello to Time magazine’s Person of the Year: Mark Zuckerberg, co-founder and CEO of Facebook.

[Time Managing Editor Richard Stengel] said Zuckerberg stands out for accomplishing something that’s never been done before: connecting millions of people and mapping the social relations among them.

“This year they passed 500 million users — one in 10 people on the planet,” Stengel said.

“He’s our second-youngest Person of the Year,” Stengel added; only Charles Lindbergh, named the magazine’s very first Man of the Year back in 1927 when he was 25, was younger.”
