Happy Birthday

Here's what Facebook looked like when it launched this day ten years ago

Today, its creator is thought to have a net worth of $31 billion, with Bono’s 2% investment in the company thought to be worth about $1.5 billion.

That’s more than he’s earned through his entire music career, and the total fortune of Sir Paul McCartney, the world’s richest musician.

Now that was a sound investment.  Happy birthday, Facebook.
