Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook was a key spark in the spread and organization of the recent revolts in Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen and Libya. Back home President Obama praised Facebook as an example of American innovation in his January State of the Union Address.
A month later Zuckerberg sat next to Obama at a dinner with other tech titans like Steve Jobs, Eric Schmidt, Larry Ellison and John Doerr. Over the last year the 26-year-old’s fortune surged 238% to $13.5 billion as investments from firms like Goldman Sachs boosted Facebook’s valuation to $50 billion. “The Social Network,” a fictionalized film of Facebook’s creation, further thrust Zuck & Co. into the spotlight and earned an Oscar for best adapted screenplay.
