Facebook is celebrating its 10th birthday today and it absolutely blows our minds that it’s been an entire decade already since some of us have joined The Facebook. Remember when it was called The Facebook? Man, without Facebook today, where would we be? How would we know when events or birthdays are? How would we share things? WHERE WOULD ALL OUR TIME GO?
That got us thinking: how different were our lives before and after Facebook? Was this social media giant really that influential on our lives? Let’s break it down for you and see just what we were like pre/post Zuckerberg.
Before: You could avoid friendships IRL.
After: THEY CAN HUNT YOU DOWN.
Before: You sent out event invites one by one like a sucker.
After: Facebook events FTW.
Before: You had to write down all of your upcoming events.
After: Who needs a planner anymore?
Before: You had to proclaim your birthday to others.
After: “Phew thanks for reminding me to wish that person a happy birthday today, Facebook!”
Before: Speaking of which, remember actual birthday cards?
After: NOT A THING ANYMORE.
Before: Oh, and photo albums!
After: ALSO NOT A THING ANYMORE.
Before: Remember when you told another human being how you felt, face-to-face?
After: Now you can tell everyone how you feel ASAP.
But let’s be real, this was the real ‘before’:
And this is the real ‘after’:
