I am speaking about everyone’s favorite social networking site, Facebook. It seems like only yesterday it was 2003. That year had worldwide events such as the election of Arnold Schwarzenegger, the creation of Homeland Security, and Lance Armstrong was winning his 5th of 7 Tour de France titles. Little did we know at the same time, a nerdy Harvard student Mark Zuckerberg was hacking into Harvard’s student ID directory and launching the early versions of Facebook (which at the time was named FaceMash).
Are You One of the 500 Million on Facebook?
Now it’s 2010, almost 10 years later and Facebook has reached 500 millions users. This is a huge accomplishment because if you combined the populations of the U.S.A, Canada, Australia, you still wouldn’t reach 500 million. It would take more countries and more citizens to even populate Facebook. Maybe it should be considered its own continent. To celebrate this huge feat Facebook staffers were asked to take a picture of themselves holding Thank-You notes. You can check out the collection at Bing . This phenomenon has become so big that there’s even a Facebook movie coming out about!
