This year 2010 Person of the Year presented by Time Magazine went to Facebook creator and CEO, Mark Zuckerberg. The man behind the biggest social networking site in the world is on the front cover of Time with bright green eyes and a “baby-face” look. With such an innocent expression it makes you wonder how with the release of the movie “Social Network” this year, how anyone could find this childlike looking Zuckerberg to be anything but a genius.
No matter if you think Zuckerberg is a good guy or bad guy there is one thing that reins true, is that he definitely deserves to be the next person to hold this title. His social network website Facebook changed the way the world communicates. Facebook is a glistening beacon for business marketing, goofing off at work, and most importantly finding a date.
The Facebook phenomenon has had more of an impact on the day-to-day lives of millions of people than any other social network site to date. There was more than 500 million active users in July 2010, which is about one person for every fourteen in the world is on Facebook.
Mark Zuckerberg beat out spokesperson and editor in chief for WikiLeaks Julian Assange. Many disagree with the choice but here at WebFly we could not be more thrilled of Time Magazine’s decision to go with Zuckerberg. Past, Person of the Year, winners includes Bill Gates, FDR, Queen Elizabeth II, Hitler and Stalin.
