Ten Years of Facebook (Oradea, Romania)
The world’s largest social network is integral to so many lives that it’s hard to believe we’ve been painstakingly selecting profile pictures for only a decade. This conference will examine the impact of Facebook on “debate, discourse, and rhetoric” and on philosophy and politics. Invite your “friends.”

UPDATE — September 3, 2014: The original post stated that we've been "liking" Facebook posts for 10 years. The "Like" button was not introduced until 2009.
