Remember when you had to have an official university/college e-mail address to join social media juggernaut Facebook? Remember when you thought, “Why would I ditch my MySpace? Well, you were probably there close to the start, now a decade ago.
Today, the tool that made us all certifiable creepers, turns 10. Happy Birthday to Mark Zuckerberg and his team of collegiate nerds.

Here’s to another 10. Cheers.
