Happy birthday, Facebook! Can you guys believe it's been 10 years since we were introduced to the website that has managed to suck so much of our free (and not-so-free) time and is surely the number 1 reason why we haven't been promoted at our jobs more often? Oh, I kid. Facebook isn't to blame for our procrastinating ways any more than the mere existence of chocolate is to blame for those extra five pounds we can't lose. And you've got to admit the site lasted way longer than most of assumed it would. Over the past decade, it has evolved from a cool and hip website used mostly by college kids to a social networking service that even your grandma checks on a daily basis. Let's celebrate the site that -- for better or worse -- made Mark Zuckerberg a household name by reflecting on 5 ways Facebook has made our lives better and 5 ways it has completely destroyed humanity as we know it.
