Our dear old Facebook was officially launched today, February 04. The year was 2004.
To the right, you can see the home page of the original website, TheFaceBook.com. And image credit for this picture goes to a beautiful post on the Evolution of Facebook.
The night Mark Zuckerberg decided to launch a website to avenge his ex girl friend; he posted the following posts in his Livejournal account:
“I’m a little intoxicated, not gonna lie. So what if it’s not even 10 pm and it’s a Tuesday night? What? The Kirkland [dorm] facebook is open on my desktop and some of these people have pretty horrendous facebook pics. I almost want to put some of these faces next to pictures of farm animals and have people vote on which is more attractive”
Yea, it’s on. I’m not exactly sure how the farm animals are going to fit into this whole thing (you can’t really ever be sure with farm animals…), but I like the idea of comparing two people together.
Let the hacking begin.
And true to its word, this stunning hack has already hypnotized 800 million plus Facebook fans.
Have a great year ahead, Facebook!
