It's the most meme-tastic, listicled, socially buzzworthy birthday to hit the Web: Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is officially off the 30-under-30 list.

In honor of the billionaire's 30th birthday Wednesday, the Internet has exploded with lists of 30 things he should do to celebrate, 30 things he's accomplished, 30 little-known facts about him and plenty of analysis over whether Facebook is maturing too.

Tweets are pouring in with people wishing Zuckerberg a Happy Birthday and telling stories of how Facebook changed their lives.

Mashable even has a guide to hoodie fashion to mark the big day and hoodie selfies are flooding Twitter and Instagram.

Oxford Dictionaries tweeted a link to a story from Zuckerberg's 29th birthday on how the media giant Facebook has changed the English language giving new meaning to words like status, wall and unfriend.

The big question is what's next for the man who, according to Forbes, became the 22nd wealthiest person in the world before turning 30? Snag one more tech startup this year, perhaps.
