15 Faces Who Control Your Life but You Wouldn’t Recognize on the Street

Would you recognize these people if you ran into them?

Give it a shot.

 

 

1. Noah Glass

 

face 1

Who’s that? No biggie. Just THE CREATOR OF TWITTER.

 

 

2. Dong Nguyen

 

face 2

Say what you want. This man may have caused you to fail your exam. I introduce to you, from Vietnam…

The creator of Flappy Bird!

 

 

3. Brian Acton and Jan Koum

 

whats app

Aside from them giving it up to Mark, let’s not forget that these guys over here are the gods of Whatsapp.

 

 

4. Marissa Mayer

Here’s proof that blondes can be smart. You may not be using Yahoo!, but let’s take a moment and appreciate the former long-time executive and key spokesperson for Google… and who is now – wait for it – CEO of Yahoo!

 

 

5. Ilya (L) and Mark Terebin (R)

 

askfm-2

Who are these Russian playboys? They created the mostly anonymous users’ based Ask.fm.

You may have heard their names lately as their website caused a teenager Hannah Smith to commit suicide after being bullied on Ask.Fm. Sad.

 

 

6. Gabriele Cirulli

Here’s a teenager who you wouldn’t ban your daughter from seeing. This 19-year-old boy is the creator of the hit (aka frustrating) game 2048.

 

 

7. Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger

 

instagram

I bet you’re loving their innocent smiles right now. Sorry to interrupt, these two made a fortune when they sold their 2010 creation to Mark Zuckerberg. That creation would be *drum roll* Instagram!

 

 

8. Evan Spiegel and Reggie Brown

 

snapchat

This look is not for the photo. It’s a “I’ve seen you through your worst” look.

Now, let’s give them a round of applause of turning down over billions of offers from Facebook and bids from Google.

Hold your cell phones up for the founders of Snapchat!

 

 

9. Alan Mamedi and Nami Zarringhalam

 

trucaller

It’s sad that we can’t figure out their identity when they’ve figured out a way to tell us the identities of unwanted calls.

They are none other than the founders of TrueCaller!

 

 

10. Joel Flory and Greg Lutze

 

vsco

 

Aren’t they photogenic? Well, they should be. After all, they’re the experts.

These two are the founders of Vscocam, the popular photographic editing app.

 

 

10. David Karp

 

tumblr

I don’t think you realize that this is the coolest person ever. This guy over here made Tumblr. You heard that right. I mean “read”.

 

 

11. Otis Chandler and Elizabeth Chandler

 

good reads

Otis is the Founder and CEO while Elizabeth is the Editor in Chief. It make sense for them to have the photo taken at a book passage because Otis founded the beloved Goodreads.

 

 

12. Niklas Zennström and Janus Friis

 

skype

You know you’re across the world connection is nothing without them. They founded Skype!

 

 

13. Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield

 

ben

Awww, old men with ice creams *sobs*. I bet you figured out who they are from the first names. Ben and Jerry from Ben & Jerry’s. The Ben & Jerry’s!

 

 

14. Ho-Am Byung-chull Lee

 

who

You don’t have to say his name. Really. He’s not asking who he is. Chill.

This lovely man here founded… well, SAMSUNG!

 

 

15. Jimmy Wales

 

wiki

This here is the man who signed your graduation certificate.

Ladies and gentlemen, give it up for the founder of Wikipedia!
