Facebook Celebrates Its Fifth Birthday

THE INTERNET, Feb. 5, 2009 - Yesterday, Facebook—the Web’s largest social networking site—celebrated its fifth birthday.

After skipping out of work early, Facebook met up with MySpace, Bebo, and LinkedIn for happy hour. They cranked half-price Miller Lites and enjoyed a “Friday's Pick Three for All” appetizer platter at T.G.I. Friday’s before heading over to Fuddruckers for some burgers. Later, they popped back over to T.G.I. Friday’s to check out the scene. MySpace bought a round of SoCo Limes, which resulted in Bebo throwing up. After gaining some courage from a round of Red Bull Vodkas, the group unsuccessfully tried to move in on a table of college coeds who weren’t really feeling it. At the end of the night—after spending 45 minutes in the cold waiting for cabs—the group said its goodnights. Facebook crashed at MySpace’s place, and LinkedIn had to take care of Bebo.

This morning, the gang spent the first hour of their respective workdays posting/tagging pictures and aggressively writing on walls about how awesome Facebook’s birthday was.

I'm surprised they didn't cross paths with those sexy babes from Latin America, orkut and hi5.
