Facebook Expected To File For IPO

Hey Facebook! You’re 10-years-old today!

Which means…we’re ancient. Many of us can remember when you first hit the scene. Hell, many of us still have our MySpace accounts. And on this special day when you turn the coveted double digits (until you hit about 28), we’d like to remember those first days that were filled with so much joy and laughter.

From your first steps out of Mark Zuckerberg’s dorm room, to being potty trained (equivalent to the addition of photo albums which was like, EPIC), we’ve been there since the beginning. And though you may be all bells and whistles and crazy security and algorithm changes that confuse us on a daily, we’ve had some good times.

So here’s to the Facebook we miss. The Facebook before your mom or uncle joined. And definitely before places of employment used it as an extension of your resume.

Being allowed only one picture on your profile:

No pressure of your photo albums resembling something straight off of Pinterest…

When only college students were granted access:

Go away, Grandma…

When Facebook became Instagram…but better:

Because photo albums were little stories you could tell through images. And it was amazing…

Seeing where that other person was logged in:

Right there under “Access.” You know, for stalking purposes…

The wall…

When people actually used it to drop in and say hi, not to promote their parties at the club…

Facebook pre-status:

enhanced-28332-1391138747-4

Because we really didn’t need to know that…

The Honesty Box:

Well…maybe not…

The Privacy:

animal

Because do you really need to know that I liked 11 of my ex-boyfriend’s photos…

Pokes:

pokes

Kidding, we’ve always hated pokes. They’re violent and sexist and just plain creepy…

Facebook before the games and apps and all that damn clutter…

Best-Facebook-games

Because tricks are for kids. And kids shouldn’t be on Facebook. Period.
