Zuckerberg named TIME's Person of the Year

Mark Zuckerberg, founder and CEO of Facebook, has just been named TIME Magazine's 2010 Person of the Year.

After growing Facebook to 500 million users world-wide and pledging to give the majority of his wealth to charity, TIME explains Zuckerberg was the perfect choice:

"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."

According to Mashable, many disagree with the choice and believe the WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange's accomplishments were much more important than Zuckerberg's.

Other runners-up included the Tea Party, Hamid Karzai and the Chilean Miners.
