Facebook founder named Time’s ‘person of year’

By Terence

NEW YORK (AFP) – – Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg on Wednesday beat WikiLeaks chief Julian Assange to be crowned Time magazine’s “person of the year” — even though the weekly’s own readers thought it should be the other way around.

Zuckerberg, only 26, is the second youngest person named to the cover of Time’s ritual annual issue.

Managing editor Richard Stengel said Zuckerberg’s social networking service was “transforming the way we live our lives every day.”
