Mark Zuckerberg

Age: 27
Occupation: Co-founder, chairman and CEO of Facebook

And 2012 will be a banner year for Facebook as it plans an initial public offering that could value the firm at as much as $100 billion — a deal that will make majority owner Zuckerberg a very wealthy man indeed but bring with it a whole new series of pressures and expectations.
