Hard to believe it’s 5 years, it somehow seems just like yesterday I decided to take the plunge into the Facebook world. 2008 was a year of big change. They changed the appearance from a single page to mutliple pages. There was somewhat of an outcry but I love the new improved version.
To celebrate its fifth birthday Facebook is giving its 150 million users a mystery virtual gift.
The gift shop’s presents usually range from cuddly bears to a pint of beer and from champagne to a four-leaf clover.
Founder Mark Zuckerberg said, “In the spirit of celebrating connections between people, we encourage you to use this gift to give thanks to [those] you are connected with on Facebook.”
In the battle for online friends, Facebook is now the world leader.
In a blog post, Mr Zuckerberg acknowledged the company’s work in achieving its place as the biggest social network to date.
“Building and moving quickly for five years hasn’t been easy, and we aren’t finished.
“As we celebrate Facebook’s 5th birthday, we continue to work hard to evolve Facebook and make it as simple as possible to communicate with and understand the people and entities that matter to you,” wrote Mr Zuckerberg.
