  • Social media giant Facebook is now 1 billion users strong. To thank those who already use the platform to connect and hope to inspire those who have yet to join the ranks, Facebook has created its first official advertisement, entitled, “The Things That Connect Us.”

    But mostly chairs, really, and that is why “Chairs are like Facebook.”
