As 2010 comes to an end Facebook now
reports about $2B in revenue which is amazing for a number of
reasons, not the least of which is that Facebook estimated revenue of closer to
$1.5B (which was double the 2009 revenue) and not all that long ago Facebook
was criticized for not being about to monetize at all. Now with 500+ active
users it's no wonder that Time recognized Mark Zuckerberg "Person of the Year 2010," however one might
wonder if Zuckerberg's promise to give a sizable portion of his enormous wealth
to charitable causes wasn't a result of trying to improve the image of Facebook
after the Social
Network movie which portrayed Zuckerberg as not so nice.
without question mark Zuckerberg's efforts to develop Facebook have had a
significant influence on the evolution of Social Media.
