Happy Birthday Facebook

a Biblical thought...
Balaam answered them, "Even if Balak gave me his palace filled with silver and gold, I could not do anything great or small to go beyond the command of the LORD my God. (Number 22:18)

a Book thought...
God’s part of the call dynamic is to initiate, guide, position, and intervene. The leader’s part of the call drama is to hear, respond, search, and order or reorder life. (p95)
a Dave thought...
Facebook celebrates its fifth birthday this week and the company has much to crow about, as new figures reveal the social network has twice as many monthly users in Australia as its nearest competitor, MySpace.
According to web traffic monitor Nielsen Online, Facebook attracted 4,682,000 unique visitors in December, compared with just 2,362,000 for MySpace. Furthermore, each Facebook user viewed 381 pages on Facebook but MySpace users looked at only 252 pages.
The figures show Australians appear to be deserting MySpace for Facebook, which started as a Harvard dorm room project in 2004 and has had an astronomical rise in Australia since first bypassing MySpace in April last year.
Founder Mark Zuckerberg, 24, said he was "humbled" that so many people were using the site to "engage and understand the world around them. The culture of the internet has also changed pretty dramatically over the past five years," he said.
"Before, most people wouldn't consider sharing their real identities online. But Facebook has offered a safe and trusted environment for people to interact online, which has made millions of people comfortable expressing more about themselves."

I am one of the many millions that have crossed over from MySpace to Facebook, it is amazing how something can become such a phenomena in just 5 years, and all from mere dorm room. Enjoy the birthday Mark.

Just a thought.
