Facebook turns 10: from college dorm to 1.23 billion users
Facebook celebrates 10-year anniversary: read this article from The Guardian and find out what the highlighted words mean.
What does the future look like? According to Facebook, exactly 10 years after the social network was created, the future is called Paper. But it’s not quite as nostalgic as it sounds. This is the future where we write, film and share our stories via our mobile phones. A version of the Facebook site, Paper replaces buttons with touchscreen swipes, and uses full-screen to play video on the devices, where the future of the internet will be fought. But Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s 29-year-old founder, also wants to hire human editors to promote the most interesting content, to newspapers themselves. In this case, the retro represents something more: a desire to find new ways to make Facebook more relevant to the human desire for communication, by people themselves.
