Ezra Callahan, the senior products manager of Facebook, spoke about the startup, expansion, controversies and future of Facebook on Thursday, Nov. 2 at an event titled ‘Facebook Revolution,’ sponsored by Hillel and the Career Center.
‘The goal of Facebook is to maximize the flowing of information, which may sound cheesy. … We’re interested in pushing the communication with people you are in close proximity with … people [with whom] you have some shared background,’ Callahan said.
Facebook, one of the fastest-growing online directories that connects people through social networks, now reaches over 10 million users.
The Web site was originally founded as ‘thefacebook’ in February 2004 by Mark Zuckerberg
