Congratulations Facebook! Ten years and still going strong!  What an amazing impact Facebook has had on our social lives these past ten years, and we hope for ten more from the same incredible brand you have established. Facebook has truly changed the way we see the world and has connected millions of friends and family all over the globe. It has become how we communicate and stay in touch, how we meet new people and keep old friends! In a more business-minded approach, Facebook has also created a magnificently interconnected web for the biggest to the smallest company to communicate and let people know about their brand, culture, product and service.  Check out this “Turning 10, Thanks to You” post Facebook uploaded earlier today:
