Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is a shining star – one that’s still rising. Not only has become the talk of the town as the genius behind everyone’s favorite social media networking site, but now he’s officially received the nation’s stamp of approval as TIME magazine’s 2010 “Person of the Year.”
The 26-year-old is reportedly the youngest to take home this title since the “Person of the Year” was award was created. Back in 1927, Charles Lindbergh (the first “Person of the Year” ever) was just one year younger than Zuckerberg.
What makes the title so special Zuckerberg? He even beat out Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II, who was 26 when she was named “POTY” in 1952, by just two weeks. This is huge news and it’s already got us talking around the station.
