As I’m sure most of you saw a few weeks ago, Facebook turned 10. In celebration, they released “Lookback” videos. During mine, I was told I joined Facebook in 2004.
It is hard to believe I’ve been a member of any social network for 10 years (okay, email for closer to 20 years). And after recently hitting my 5-year anniversary on Twitter a week or two ago, I can’t help but think that I joined both Facebook and Twitter as a lark (Facebook when it was moving campus to campus, Twitter when I realized I could potentially connect directly with those I needed to learn from).
While I’ve been on Facebook for 10 years, it’s really the last five years that have changed my life considerably. But I’ll skip the obvious personal story (yes, having a kid definitely changes your life).
What happened five years ago? I got the email marketing bug*.
