7. Zuckerberg Mocks Facebook Faithful
Quote: "People just submitted it. I don't know why. They "trust me". Dumb fucks."
At age 19, Mark Zuckerberg had just launched Facebook in his Hardvard dorm room. A series of IM exchanges between him and a college friend during that time frame surfaced years later online (courtesy of Silicon Alley Insider), exposing the CEO poking fun of users gulibility and privacy concerns. Zuckerberg admitted to mocking subscribers and told the New Yorker's Jose Antonio Vargas "I think I've grown and learned a lot" from the incident. From there, he'd go on to be Time Person of the Year 2010. How's that for damage control.
