TIME Managing Editor Richard Stengel said Zuckerberg stands out for accomplishing something that’s never been done before: “Connecting more than half a billion people and mapping the social relations among them.” “The social networking platform he invented ... is the connective tissue for nearly a tenth of the planet,” Stengel said. “Facebook is now the third-largest country on earth, and probably holds more information than any government about its citizens. Zuckerberg, a Harvard dropout, is its T-shirt-wearing head-of-state.”
Stengel said Zuckerberg is “creating a new system of exchanging information that has become both indispensable and sometimes a little frightening” — and it’s changing our lives “in ways that are innovative and even optimistic.”
That's exactly what the whole facebook is . . . the world collectively peeking up each other's skirts.
