Facebook: 10 years

Facebook was created ten years ago and has changed the way we interact and communicate; all your activities, personal information, photos and preferences are uploaded and share on the internet. This project started in Harvard University is now one of the most profitable companies around the world; it has about 1.23 billion of users and goes on. Marck Zuckerberg, the creator, is only 29; he is a competitive, ambitious and visionary man who believes that Facebook could help answer questions and solve complex problems.
