Mark Zuckerberg
1 of 11
In February 2004, Zuckerberg founded what would one day become the second most visited website in the world. He was a nineteen-year old sophomore at Harvard. Seven years from that day, one out of every dozen people on the planet would have a Facebook account. As Time Magazine wrote about Zuckerburg in his "Person of the Year 2010 Profile," "Zuckerburg wired a twelfth of humanity into a single network, thereby creating a social entity almost twice as large as the U.S. If Facebook were a country it would be the third largest, behind only China and India." To date, Zuckerberg is estimated to be worth about $13.5 billion, making him the youngest self-made billionaire in history.
