Today it’s Facebook’s 10th anniversary. 10 years of sharing, liking, commenting, connecting and supporting causes. It’s 10 years since the beginning of the Social Media Age!
It’s a huge celebration at Facebook and an important milestone for its founder, Mark Zuckerberg, who shared today his thoughts about the brilliant and unexpected journey of his project and the giant impact that Facebook has had on people lives: “It’s been amazing to see how all of you have used our tools to build a real community. You’ve shared the happy moments and the painful ones. You’ve started new families, and kept spread out families connected. You’ve created new services and built small businesses. You’ve helped each other in so many ways”, he said.
In his speech at @TED’x Bucharest, Lucian was also pointing out the impact that Facebook had on our lives: “There are 3 fundamental things that Facebook changed completely, and those are: first, the way we network, the way we keep contact with our friends and families; second, the way we consume content: be it news or infotainment and third, the way we entertain ourselves”, stating the fact that we are now living a social media revolution having Facebook at the epicenter of it.
Here at Kondiment we have had the opportunity to measure in real time the power of Facebook on businesses and politics and there’ no doubt that the social network platform has had a huge impact on internet, changing users behavior, brands and industries, expanding boundaries and possibilieties to partake more than ever before.
Also, we can appreciate – as many of our collegues – that Facebook has always had a briliant way of engaging with its users and making them really relate to each and every step of it’s journey… Especially for their anniversary, the team from Facebook took care to make users feel a part of the celebration through the https://www.facebook.com/lookback application that generates videos based on the users’s Facebook history.
We feel a part of Facebook’s celebration and are wishing a happy anniversary to our partners there!
