I loved seeing all those personalized "Friends Day" videos on my Facebook friends' news feeds yesterday. The videos, featuring photos they previously posted to their pages, were created by the social media giant to mark its 12th birthday.
In a dozen years, Facebook has transformed the social landscape by allowing users to share with the people who passed the friend request test their thoughts, their opinions, their good times and bad times, their vacations, their new hairstyles, their "TGIF"s and what they ate for breakfast.
And as a result, the world has become infinitely more connected. The 1.59 billion Facebook users are connected to every other user by an average of 3.5 degrees of separation.
So, I'd like to wish a happy Friends Day to my close friends Kevin Bacon, George Clooney, Matthew_McConaughey and Betty White.
