Facebook started out by being for college students. Students were able to keep up with birthdays of their friends by simply viewing the events tab on Facebook. Since Facebook’s start in 2004, more and more networks of people have become active on the site. This has lessened the overall focus of Facebook updates to be towards students, but rather towards the growing network of professionals and married couples. Facebook just began allowing users to state the date of their marriage, therefore reminding the whole Facebook world of anniversary dates.
This is a great tool for all those men that I know that always forget that special anniversary occasion. No need for the pretty females in their lives to have to leave “subtle” hints about upcoming events. Facebook takes all the guess-work out of having to remember special dates.
Thank you Facebook- Another easy way to stay informed on the lives of my “network”.
