‘Time’ names Zuckerberg Person of the Year

Time magazine has picked Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg as its annual Person of the Year, the figure it believes had the most influence on events in 2010, BBC reports. The 26-year-old billionaire was the subject of a 2010 film, The Social Network, charting Facebook’s rise. Wikileaks founder Julian Assange earlier won a Time readers’ poll on 2010’s most influential person. The annual feature has been a fixture since the 1920s, with the winner appearing on the front cover of Time.
