    Facebook Creator, Mark Zuckerberg






    Mark Zuckerberg: TIME Magazine's Person of the Year for 2010


    TIME Magazine has announced its 2010 Person of the Year, and it's the same guy who starred in one of the year's biggest films -- sort of. Mark Zuckerberg, the 26-year-old Facebook creator and subject of Oscar front-runner 'The Social Network,' notched the honor "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," TIME writes.

    The magazine's Person of the Year package includes a long profile of Zuckerberg, an essay, videos inside Facebook HQ and photos of Zuckerberg now and in his youth.

    Zuckerberg beat Wikileaks founder Julian Assange for the top spot.

    Facebook Founder has a stalker



    Court tells man to stay away from Facebook founder

    Man tried to ask Internet tycoon for money to help his family, TMZ reports

    Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has obtained a temporary restraining order against a California man accused of stalking him, his girlfriend and his sister.
    A judge on Feb. 1 ordered 31-year-old Pradeep Manukonda to stay away from Zuckerberg and stop contacting him.

    Manukonda tried to contact Zuckerberg numerous times in December via letter, e-mail and Facebook, including more than 20 times in one day, Facebook security officer Todd Sheets said in a court declaration. Manukonda also left a note on Zuckerberg's car and was later spotted outside his house, Sheets said.
    Guards stopped Manukonda just as he was about to walk up the front stairs to Zuckerberg's residence, where Zuckerberg's girlfriend was inside, according to court documents.
    Sheets said he contacted police at the time and that an officer gave Manukonda a verbal stay-away order. Two days later, Sheets says Manukonda sent Zuckerberg a letter at his home and flowers two days after that, despite an in-person interview with Sheets where he promised to stop.
    Manukonda did not immediately return messages seeking comment.
    Barry Schnitt, a director at Facebook, told NBC News the report was accurate.


    "We're confirming that the restraining order was granted, but not providing any additional details," he said.
    In the letters included as evidence in the court file, Manukonda pleads with Zuckerberg for a few minutes of his time. Though his requests are vague, he appears to be seeking money to pay for medical treatment for his mother.
    "I plead, please help me in saving my mother," he writes in a letter dated Jan. 23. "I am ready to die for you. Please Mark please."
    Later in the same letter he writes: "I am waiting outside your house."
    The order also requires Manukonda to stay away from Zuckerberg's girlfriend.
    The restraining order was first reported by TMZ.com

    I think he's brilliant. I also bet that he had NO idea it would explode like it did into the world of social networking.
    The time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.

    I just love his story. I like to study people that take an idea and make it a success. I find it inspiring.

    That guy who's stalking him sounds pretty creepy. BTW, has anyone here seen that movie "The Social Network" yet? I'd like to see it, but I haven't heard too many reviews good or bad about it.

    It's awesome but from what I read, took some creative liberties.
