The first time @BuzzFeed has ever made me cry

Facebook’s 10-year anniversary video was just a montage of my time in Australia and some random people I met along the way. For this girl, her Facebook anniversary video was absolutely heart-wrenching!

Somehow this reminds me of Ernest Hemmingway’s 6 word short story. “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.” This Facebook video seems to do have the same condensing power over what could be a Nicholas Sparks novel or movie. It’s amazing to see such emotion, depth, and biography conveyed in less than two minutes.

This makes me want to chronicle more of my life on Facebook. Mission accomplished, Facebook.
