A Decade of Facebooking in Uganda

By Roger Bambino @rogekk

This week today, Facebook celebrates 10years of rocking our social media frenzy. I have had lots of friends who have joined and divorced the platform, some have met via Facebook and gotten married, as for break ups I don’t want to start. Lots have been stalked, blocked, poked the list is endless, the great stories are when people transact successful businesses via this social media platform; and that always puts a smile on my face. So expect some kind of big deal celebrations from Facebook outpouring reflection of its past and speculation about its future.
