Time Magazine has named Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg as the ‘Person of the Year’.

A not-so surprising choice as Zuckerberg’s accomplishments in the decade have seen changes in how we communicate and share our lives and work with people all over the world. Facebook recently crossed 550 million users, which according to Time, would make it the third biggest country in the world if it was.

“For connecting more than half a billion people and mapping the social relations among them; for creating a new system of exchanging information; and for changing how we all live our lives, Mark Elliot Zuckerberg is Time’s 2010 Person of the Year,” explains Time

While Zukerberg is a good choice for the title, not everyone agrees with it. Commentors on the Time website are flaming the magazine for not selecting WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange who they believe has achieved far more important accomplishments than Zuckerberg.
