The article focuses on Yoshikazu Tanaka, the 32-year-old founder of social networking site Gree. His company went public in December, one of only 12 to list in 2008 on Tokyo's Mothers Market for small high-growth stocks, much fewer than in recent years. Tanaka is not the first to make a bundle creating online communities. Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg was the world's youngest billionaire last year. MySpace founders and investors sold the company to News Corp. for $580 million in 2005.
