Have been having kind of a crappy week so far, so, when I saw what Facebook was doing to celebrate their tenth birthday (I know…ten years! Crazy, huh?!) it really made my day. All you have to do is click on the link floating around Facebook today and the FB team instantly creates a little personalized video celebration of your time on Facebook. It’s super easy and most of the resulting videos I watched are pretty damn cool. Emphasis on the word most.
I joined Facebook in 2009 right after Greta was born, so, my video starts with a picture of Mrs. Yeti and myself cradling our newborn daughter in the hospital. Oy, I get a little verklempt just thinking about it. Anyway, if we’re FB friends, check out my clip there and then make one for yourself, and if you’re really shy and don’t want the whole world watching your FB video, you don’t have to share it with anyone and can simply enjoy your memories alone. Cool, huh?
But whatever you do with your clip and however you chose to celebrate the social network’s first decade in existence this week…happy 10th birthday, Facebook!
