Los Angeles, CA (Obama.net) – Joining fellow technology celebrities Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon.com, Andy Grove, former Intel CEO, and Bill Gates, founder of Microsoft, Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg was recently named Time Magazine’s Person of the Year for 2010. Citing the fact that Facebook has engrained itself within the American way of life and really the day to day lives of people around the world has led Time Magazine to make Zuckerberg this year’s honoree.
Zuckerberg is the second youngest person to win this prestigious award, following only Charles Lindbergh who won it way back in 1927. Zuckerberg’s fame has increased exponentially this past year with his story of how he created the social phenomenon website portrayed on the big screen in David Fincher’s film “The Social Network.”
With 41.1 million minutes spent on Facebook in the month of August, it does not look like this social media giant will be going anywhere soon, and is extremely likely to continue to be a part of many American’s daily lives for years to come.
