How was life when there was no FACEBOOK?

Profile picture? check! , Notification? check!, Wall? checked!, News feeds? ,Status updates?

…all checked,
Now you should already have an idea what am talikng about, if that didn’t ring a bell please dont read futher, (lol)

 Facebook!  that is what it is called ,that two letter words that is shaping our social network connection, ok lets     press Pause and Rewind backwards to when there was no face book,oh i see u have forgotten so soon?On February 4, 2004, Zuckerberg launched “Thefacebook” which was latter changed to ‘facebook’ after   purchasing the doamin name in 2005, during this years its users were mainly college students in Europe and   Facebook was later then opened on September 26, 2006to everyone ages 13 and older with a valid e-mail address. 

i can still remember the email i received in my Yahoo box from a friend inviting me to join Facebook sometimes in year 2007 and i signed up with my yahoo mail i guess i didn’t have a single clue what i was up to ,but we were still basking in the euphoria of social network (remember Hi5 and Myspace?) so it was cool to try something new again i signed up with my yahoo-mail and the rest is history.

So the question is how did we connect with friends back then? oh i remember the best we had then was our yahoomail and yahoomessenger which was the only platform for people for people in for people for people in  our region of the world to chat with  and then we really felt cool chating real time with friends,we would Buzz! and BUzz!,join chat rooms and so on we also made use of other unpopular platform like ecards(i still remember the site),eJokes,eNews and but i guess there was still a vaccum left to be filled due to so many reasons, and then came Facebook and you can trust all my Naija peeps it was like the fahsion item u maust have, i recall a rumor back then that facebook was owned my a Nigerian (lol) ,so the facebook craze began and like they say that change is the most constant thing it really changed the way we see social networking.
There are currently over 3.25 Million Nigerians using Facebook from Nigeria and the users are increasing to show that it has come to stay and the idea that people want to share and connect with people in their lives, and do it with complete control over who they share with at all time makes facebook what it is today.so if if there was no Facebook today how would you feel or let me rephrase if facebook shutdown (Godforbid..lol)  how would u feel?
