Happy Birthday Facebook!

Today celebrates their 6th birthday! According to this article on and the information on their site, Facebook was launched six years ago on February 4, 2004.

"Founded by Mark Zuckerberg, together with his college roomies Eduardo Saverin, Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Huges, Facebook was originally intended to be a network oonly for Harvard students, but was later expanded to other universities and finally to everyone."

Facebook is one of today's largest social networking sites, it has changed the internet, affected our daily lives and definitely made an impact on the public relations field as well. Can you believe it's been six years already since Facebook came about? What do you think the future holds for Facebook? How will it further affect public relations?
