Happy Birthday Facebook!

For Facebook’s 8th birthday, they are going public. Who would have thought eight years ago a website that’s content is completely user driven could be such a power house business and connect most of the world.

Now, it’s hard to remember a world without Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, but you only have to think back to before February of 2004 to see a world without these social media juggernauts. Even then, it took a few years for Facebook to reach most college students and to become a household name.

Mashable wrote a great article about the evolution of Facebook which includes a slideshow of Facebook’s profiles. I hope you “Like” it.
