I have always had an urge to pen a thankful note to Mark Zuckerberg for having presented us the unique Facebook application that has reconnected and connected people across the world.
Few decades ago, I would spend my summer holidays with my Aunt and Cousins in Chennai away from my small home town near Mumbai and one could find me hovering near the Gates desperately waiting for the letters from a bunch of friends back in Mumbai. This was the only connectivity I had to my world and precious more than life, nothing else really mattered!!!!
In pursuit of the word called “Living”, I realized that I have lost the whereabouts of my dearest Friends, Teachers, Mentors and few other important people who had mattered to me the most!!!! I had lost their address and the phone numbers and then a desperate hunt begins in finding them.
One of the crucial Tools that I am indebted to in finding many of my lost ones is the Friendly “Facebook”. The Website has the unique feature of tracing people by using the various search option. It is also the most popular Social Website across all ages, in which people have shared their sorrows to pinnacle of joy, from birth to death, from promotions to depression and so on.
Mark has beautifully blended the essence of Human Relations with the Technology and has given the world a “Web World” to stay touch.
The World is literally connected and has shrunk in size!!!
Today Facebook has gradually evolved into much more than just posting and sharing of photos and news. Today it has emerged as a strong platform for Socio- Eco Causes, Arts & Entertainment, Science and Technology and also commercially helping Organizations & Entrepreneur in their business .
And as I pen this today, I get a Friend suggestion from Facebook, whom I have not heard since 1986!!!! That’s more than 3 decade Wow!! Hats off to you Mark and Facebook!!!!
