If you had to have three words to describe you, what would they be? For me, it might be, “Writes that blog.” I think I’d trade that for Mark Zuckerberg’s: “World’s youngest billionaire,” a title he achieved back in 2008.

Zuckerberg is the co-founder and CEO of Facebook, that wonderful, frustrating, entertaining, vexing social media site. We don’t know that he is afflicted with ADD, though you’d certainly get that impression if you’re a regular Facebook user. If you saw the film The Social Network, you know the Hollywood version of Facebook’s founding. For a more accurate telling, read The Facebook Effect: The Inside Story of the Company That Is Connecting the World by David Kirkpatrick.

Zuckerberg’s creation has allowed old friends, apart for decades, to reconnect. And it lets self-absorbed people tell you all the mundane, uninteresting details of their daily lives. On the whole, it’s a net positive. Now, Mark, would you just leave it alone for a while? Huh? Please?

It's easy to share with friends.
