Breaking news! MSNBC.com reports that Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg has been named as Time Magazine’s Person of the Year for 2010.

With Facebook reaching 500 million registered users, Facebook founder and CEO has changed the map of the world.  He moved everyone closer.  Being one of the world’s youngest billionaires, Mark Zuckerberg recently pledged that he will donate most of his wealth to charity saying,

“People wait until late in their career to give back. But why wait when there is so much to be done?”

In a press release on Giving Pledge’s website, Mark added:

“With a generation of younger folks who have thrived on the success of their companies, there is a big opportunity for many of us to give back earlier in our lifetime and see the impact of our philanthropic efforts.”

TIME magazine explains the choice by saying:

‘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’
