BIRTHDAY CELEBRASIAN! Facebook Turns 6

February 4th, 2010 | 2 comments | Posted by Jen

It’s hard to believe that Facebook was launched six years ago today–where did the time go?

Oh, that’s right. Facebook ATE it.

It sucked it, wasted it, and frittered it away with its poking and SuperPoking and its Zombies and Vampires and those virtual gifts we actually spent non-virtual money on and its middle-of-the-night defriending sprees and its putting your Mom on limited profile once she joined so she wouldn’t see all of your stoned pics and its Scrabulous and Scrabble and Mafia Wars and its 25 Things list and other oversharing memes and its secret groups and Fan Pages and Doppelgänger Week–oh, Doppelgänger Week, how we loved thee–and [deep breath] that thing it was actually designed for, connecting with people or whatever, finding old classmates/childhood friends/colleagues/exes you were happy to see had gotten fat yada yada, and flirting with strangers.

Good lord. Now that we think about it, what did we do before Facebook filled our lives with all of this, well, filler? Like, actually talk to people? Weird.

    Even though there are a lot of things that annoy me about Facebook (especially the quizzes and Farmville), I am thankful for it. It keeps me connected with my family and friends far away. I can share photos of my family and details on the day to day of our lives, and I get to see what they are up to as well.
    The biggest gift that Facebook has given me, though, was that I was able to reconnect with an old friend that I was very close to in high school. We lost touch over the years, but are in contact again. Now both married and mothers, our friendship is renewed, stronger than ever. We now have weekly play dates. It is so nice to have her in my life again!

    I’m waiting to see what will kill FB the same way FB killed Myspace. Don’t tell me it’s gonna be Twitter. That’d be sad.
