They have completely changed the face of human interaction and how people communicate with each other. In  the process creating a completely new industry loaded with new ways of doing things. But today Mark Zuckerberg opened the bell remotely from the company’s Menlo Park Headquarters to mark the first day of  Facebook going public, trading on NASDAQ. Mark even updated his Facebook status at the same time

“Mark Zuckerberg listed a company on NASDAQ. — with Chris Cox and 4 others,”
