Happy Birthday, Facebook!

Seeing that Facebook is now ten years old makes me feel old.  It can’t be ten years old, right?  My goodness, I keep forgetting that the 1990’s weren’t ten years ago…  Perhaps I don’t forget, perhaps it is selective memory.  I feel that is an acceptable diversionary tactic.

I found some interesting graphs, charts and fact-graphics that provide insight into the size and reach of this social medial giant.  Most of us know well of a life pre-Facebook, but think of the upcoming generations that can’t imagine life without it.

The United States is clearly in the lead, but Brazil, the United Kingdom and India are hot on our coattails.  How much time do you spend each day on Facebook?  How has it altered your relationships?

219 billion photos on Facebook.  Call me crazy, but I thought it would be more.
