Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) will celebrate its ten years of existence on February 4 this year. To celebrate this event, The Guardian has revealed the first ten users of what was initially known as “The Facebook.” The company co-founder Mark Zuckerberg was the fourth user of the social network he co-founded. That’s because he had reserved the first three accounts for testing.
In the beginning, everyone on Facebook Inc was given a user ID number when joined. The first few million users were numbered on the basis of university. For example, 0-99999 were assigned to Harvard users, 100000-199999 were strictly for Columbia users, 200000-299999 were for Stanford users, and so on.
First ten Facebook users
Here is the list of the first ten Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) users (excluding the three testing accounts):
10- Mark Kaganovich
Kaganovich was a student at Harvard when Zuckerberg started the social network. He was good friends with David Hammer, who became the 11th member of Facebook Inc.
9- Colin Kelly
Kelly was also a Harvard student and a good friend of David Hammer. It seems like many early Facebookers were acquaintances.
