Facebook, the social media site is 10 years old today! No way! It seems like it's only been around a couple of years, and many of us have just recently signed on. What was life like before Facebook? To begin with, you probably mailed photos of your kids to family members, or sent friends a postcard while on vacation, instead of posting them instantly on Facebook.

Here's a message released today by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg on facebook.com:

"Today is Facebook's 10th anniversary.

It's been an amazing journey so far, and I'm so grateful to be a part of it. It's rare to be able to touch so many people's lives, and I try to remind myself to make the most of every day and have the biggest impact I can...

Today, only one-third of the world's population has access to the internet. In the next decade, we have the opportunity and the responsibility to connect the other two-thirds.

Today, social networks are mostly about sharing moments. In the next decade, they'll also help you answer questions and solve complex problems."
