    launched as TheFacebook on thefacebook.com with Zuckerberg claiming he
    was "Founder, Master and Commander, Enemy of the State". It didn't
    become Facebook.com until 2005 when the fledgling site bought the domain
    for $200,000 from aboutface.com a web and intranet directory software
    company
  2. Over 70% of Facebook users are outside the United States with all
    those people spending a whopping 5703 years (3 billion minutes) on the
    site each day.

    out to Palo Alto for the summer and rented a sublet. A few weeks later,
    Zuckerberg ran into the former cofounder of Napster, Sean Parker. Parker
    soon moved in to Zuckerberg's apartment and they began working
