Facebook Celebrating its 12th Birthday Today
Mark Zuckerberg shared in his post:
“Our anniversary has a lot of meaning to me as an opportunity to reflect on how far we’ve come together as a community. When I wrote the first code for Facebook in January 2004, I hoped it would help students at my college connect and bring our community together. Today more than 1.5 billion people around the world use Facebook to stay connected with friends and loved ones.”
The notion behind the network was primarily to facilitate students at Zuckerberg’s college to interact with each other. The action of friendship, love and sympathy we all share on Facebook are altering the world every day in means we cannot completely measure. Sometimes they just make people in our lives feel a bit more valued. Sometimes friendship becomes a strength that arrays us on a different trail in life.
