Pathetic! Julian was in first. Guess the vote wasn't democratic but put there in place to give the illusion that it was.

I hate time magazine's pretentious ego massaging articles, honestly as if these people had actually done something good rather than just make a name for themselves and make themselves rich.

You really don't need to advertise Facebook you know...

Besides, a little ego stroking is in order, after all, Microsoft does want its hands on Facebook. That or google...

It's ridiculous that these things happen in the first place...these petty, good for nothing awards that hypnotise those already sleeping...ridiculous.

I don't care for TIME but this is shocking. Besides owning Facebook, the only aspect of him that has given him the public spotlight and influence is Facebook's privacy problems. Other than that, Mark does not deserve the award. Lebron James, Favre, Obama, Jon Stewart or Assange should have gotten the award.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

You guys may be missing the point. The Time Person of the Year isn't some sort of award for achievement, it's about who made the biggest news impact. Could be good, could be bad. Hitler was Time Man of the Year once. So was Khomeini. Yes, they'll lose subscribers over it and get all sorts of hate mail from people who don't understand what it's all about.

Actually, I think they get a lot of people saying they are going to cancel their subscription, who aren't even subscribers. Anyone who reads Time knows the deal.

Julian was the first. Zuckerberg wasn't even between the first five. Now my question is, why they're asking the people to vote if they're already decided who is the TIME man of the year? This is another TPTB lie, another illusion. Lying, lying, lying. That's what the TPTB can do, nothing more. Elites, huh? Pathetic morons, true clowns.

From this moment I boycott the TIME Magazine.

Isn't Facebook about 6 years old, what has he done this year?

Oh yeah there was that movie about it... because that sure helped make society a better place.

Bradley Manning is my man of the year, along with the other whistleblowers who haven't been identified.

And shouldn't it be person of the year? or do they do a seperate one for women of the year?

Sorry I don't pay much attention to Time Magazine but I have heard of their man of the year.

TIMES chose a manipulative, sociopathic, megalomaniacal, narcissistic thief over a hero who is changing the world into a truthful, transparent democracy?

Wow! Just Wow!

Poll Result

The corporate internet vs the internet used as a tool for transparency and democracy. Time has chosen side and made itself redundant in the long term with other MSM such as Fox, MSNBC etc.

Ooooooooooooooooh, it wasn't rigged. If you even dare to think for that, you're a conspiracy theorist.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

The editors of Time have always chosen their Person of the Year. It has never been determined by a public vote or poll, ever. It wasn't supposed to be determined by a vote this year. There was a poll. More people who participated in the poll thought Assange should've been Person of the Year. The editors disagreed.

Since a good number of the people participating in the poll were likely clueless about what it's supposed to represent, I'm not all that surprised the editors went in another direction. They still posted the results of the poll. What's the big deal?

Y'all are funny.

Thank you.

So it is person of the year. It doesn't have the same ring to it but I guess thats the tiny price you pay for equality.

while I don't, necessarily, agree with Time's choice (as yeahright said, their choice, not the poll's), I will say this in defense of Zuckerberg - the guy has been in the news all year. From the bad publicity related to the security issues, the movie, the donations etc, the man has been in the year all year long whereas Assange, while far more important, has only been a headline for a few weeks and, even then, more people know who Zuckerberg is than Assange.

That's sad but it's true.
