Wow, finding the date you originally joined Facebook is not an easy task.
While updating my online resume, to spotlight my history in social media, networking and marketing, I thought it would be interesting to pinpoint the actual date I signed up for Facebook.
I do remember joining Facebook during my earliest b5media days. Since that was the case, I thought perhaps the Facebook friendships I have with the earliest members of b5media might be a good place to start.
When you click on a Facebook friends profile – at the far right, just above the images of friends you both have in common, there is a link “See Friendship” – if you click that link, you will open a page that has all the interaction between you and that friend along with the month and year your friendship on Facebook was formed.
This is why I think Facebook needs Tom!
I do know I was a member of Facebook for several weeks before I actually jumped in and began utilizing it’s features – so with all that information, I checked a few profiles and wha-la – I am now in the ballpark of when I actually joined Facebook.
Once I had that information, I became curious of just how soon after Facebook opened up to the public I’d actually joined.
Facebook actually opened up to anyone over the age of 13 with a valid email address in September 2006. So I guess I can call myself a Facebook veteran.
