Mark Zuckerberg Named Time's Person Of The Year

zuckcovertime.jpgMark Zuckerberg has been named Time Magazine's Person of the Year for 2010, and at the age of 26, he's the second youngest public figure to receive the honor.

The Tea party nabbed the number two spot, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange came in at number three and Afghan leader Hamid Karzai and the Chilean miners hold the number four and five spots, respectively.

In an interview with Time, Zuckerberg (who is also the world's youngest billionaire) opens up about The Social Network, which could very well clean up at the Golden Globes and the Academy Awards this season. The film earned multiple Golden Globe noms yesterday, including best motion picture, drama and a best actor nod for Jesse Eisenberg, who portrays the Facebook founder.

"I found it funny what details they focused on getting right. I think I owned every single T-shirt that they had me wearing," Zuckerberg tells Time. "But the biggest thing that thematically they missed is the concept that you would have to want to do something -- date someone or get into some final club -- in order to be motivated to do something like this. It just like completely misses the actual motivation for what we’re doing, which is, we think it’s an awesome thing to do.”

Sigh. What would we do without Facebook?
