"When you give everyone a voice, and give everyone power, the system usually
ends up in a really good place"
~ Mark Zuckerberg (Founder of Facebook)
Facebook was created by Mark Zackenburg in 2004. It started as a university
network for Harvard and grew to other Universities connecting more and more
people nationally, and eventually globally.
In the movie, The Social Network, Mark said that one out of every 8 people in the whole world is on Facebook.
"Some investment professionals claim that Facebook is worth only $75 billion or even $50 billion" - www.dealbook.nytimes.com (Feb 10, 2012)
As human beings, we enjoy social media because it satisfies our need to feel connected. By sharing our thoughts and giving our opinions we feel valued and appreciated. Social Media is a quick way to enhance your knowledge on diverse topics and can serve as a meaningful diversion after a long day. Social media is thus an extension of our needs, helping us to achieve a greater meaning in our lives.
