The Facebook founder, and accidental celebrity, caps off a year that saw his company soar to new heights after being started a mere seven years ago!
At the tender age of 26-years-old Mark Zuckerberg has had a feature film made based on his life, attained a net worth of roughly $6.9 billion and now been named Time Magazine’s “Person of the Year.” As Time explains, “In less than seven years, Zuckerberg wired together a twelfth of humanity into a single network, thereby creating a social entity almost twice as large as the U.S. If Facebook were a country it would be the third largest, behind only China and India.” It has not been all good for Mark however, as those who have seen The Social Network know, and there have been numerous lawsuits along the way. He famously settled with one of Facebook’s original founders, Eduardo Saverin, as well as Cameron Winklevoss, Tyler Winklevoss, and Divya Narendra for possibly taking the idea for Facebook from their site ConnectU. What do you think HollywoodLifers? Do you agree with this choice?
