Here’s a fun fact that will make you feel really old:
As of February 2013, Facebook’s been around for nine years.
Were you one of the first to join back in 2004 when it was exclusively for college kids?
I’m semi-proud to say I’ve been a Facebook user since late 2004, when my school (Florida State) was added to the elite list of colleges and universities allowed to participate in Mark Zuckerberg’s grand experiment.
In those days, we whispered about THE Facebook in class — daring to ask the cute boy in microeconomics if he was on the site so we could run home, get on the computer and send him a friend request (because there was no such thing as a smartphone unless playing snake in black-and-white on an old Nokia was somehow considered smart).
Now everybody and their mom (literally…and in my case, my Nana too) uses Facebook to connect with friends and family all over the world.
