Mark Zuckerberg, CEO and founder of Facebook is gonna decorate Time Magazine’s Special edition as the individual who have done the most to influence this year’s events. Mark Zuckerberg is Time Magazine’s Person of the Year.

Zuckerberg always peeked into this year’s news as he was very busy dealing with new products, privacy issues and the amazing growth of his website which has crossed the half a billion milestone. The Release of “The Social Network” also created a lot of buzz around the young billlionaire. One in every ten person on the planet is on Facebook though the site has been blocked in China, where one in every five person on the planet lives.

Zuckerberg will be joining the elite club of people to be glorified by this title which includes, Obama and techies like Bill gates and Jeff Bezos.

“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” is the reason given my Time magazine for selecting Mark.
