At Harvard, Zuckerberg and his friends adapted the concept and put it online in early 2004. At first limited to Harvard students, the site quickly spread to other schools. Now, six short years later, Facebook has become the second most popular site on the Internet (after Google), with over 500 million 1)registered users. These days, the influence and impact of Facebook is beyond 2)dispute. Ordinary people everywhere, both young and old, log in to announce major events like births, marriages, 3)breakups and 4)promotions, as well as 5)trivial information like what they had for breakfast that day, or what happened at school or work. We have Mark Zuckerberg to thank for this current trend of sharing (or over-sharing as the case may be).

就讀於哈佛時,佐克柏和友人應用了這個概念,在 2004 年初放上網路,一開始僅限哈佛學生使用,但隨即快速擴展至其他學校。如今,短短六年後,臉書已成為網際網路第二受歡迎的網站(僅次於 Google),註冊會員人數超過五億。
如今,臉書的影響力和衝擊毋庸置疑。全球各地的老百姓,不分老少,都登入臉書宣布大事,例如生小孩、結婚、分手和升遷等,還有瑣碎的小事,例如他們那天早餐吃什麼,學校或公司發生了什麼等。我們要感謝佐克柏創造了這股分享的趨勢(或許有點過度分享),
