Forbes has released its list of the 71 most powerful people in the world and number one on the list is President Obama, who was chosen unanimously by the 10 Senior Forbes editors.

The 71 people chosen are evaluated on four main factors: power, wealth, influence, and how actively they wield their power to change the world. Also making the list is British Prime Minister David Cameron at #10.  Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg returns to the list but fell from his #9 position last year to #25.  And there are some newbies on the list including Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer at #46 and LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman at # 71.
