Complex says: Facebook CEO and president Mark Zuckerberg wasn’t crowned Time’s Person of the Year just for running the world's largest social network. The billionaire college dropout served as inspiration for what was arguably the year’s best film, The Social Network. Zuckerberg even turned philanthropist, offering $100 million to help rebuild Newark public schools, and joined Bill Gates' elite contribution campaign, The Giving Pledge, which enlists billionaires to pledge half of their fortunes toward noble causes. That doesn't sound like the brat that was depicted on-screen.
