“Time” Names Mark Zuckerberg Person of the Year

Time magazine has named Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg Time’s 2010 Person of the Year.

My hats off to Mark Zuckerberg who even dismissed the David Fincher film "The Social Network" as a work of fiction. For creating Facebook, he is one of the world’s youngest billionaires to date. The film "The Social Network," Zuckerberg voices out, boxes him in as someone who built Facebook just to get girls, or to get into clubs. Zuckerberg agrees only to the clothes that his character wore in the film, claiming those as being very much his own.

"They [the film's creators] just can't wrap their head around the idea that someone might build something because they like building things," Zuckerberg tells The Guardian's Ben Child.

And why was Mark Elliot Zuckerberg chosen?

“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.

All Facebook users, all together now! "Amen!" Congratulations Mark! (yes, I am on Facebook:!/reinerioalba)
