Time’s Person of the Year

December 15, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Mark Zuckerberg was just announced as Time Magazine’s Person of the year – a title given to those have made the most impact on the world.  This puts him in the company of Adolph Hitler, Albert Einstein and Barack Obama.  Does the title fit?  You bet.

At 26, Zuckerberg is a billionaire 6 times over – that is enough to give each of the 500,000,000 Facebook members worldwide a sandwich from Subway.

Zuckerberg has not only changed the way we interact with each other and market to one another, but the site has altered many deep-seeded human truths – like blindly trusting in authority and taking greater stock in the opinions and thoughts of peers.  Zuckerberg has virtually given the consumer complete control over the marketing experience – and for the first time the consumer is beginning to realize.  People are realizing that they no longer need to be subjected to one idea or the next, but instead that they can be rewarded for independent thinking.

What did Zuckerberg do after the title was announced?  Status update, naturally.

Zuckerberg – you’re forward, creative thinking has changed a generation, and has altered the direction of communication for eternity.  Congratulations.
