What’s big, blue and like a chair? Facebook apparently

As it celebrates reaching the one-billion user mark, Facebook has released a video detailing why — um… this is going to sound a bit silly — it’s like a chair.

“Anyone can sit on a chair,” it says, “and if the chair is large enough they can sit down together, and tell jokes, or make up stories or just listen.”

“Chairs are for people, and that is why chairs are like Facebook.” Got it? Good, because we’re not 100% sure we do. When was the last time a chair found out private things about you and sent you targeted ads based on your interests? Anyway…

The video goes on to show an apparently random assemblage of objects “that people use to get together”. Oh and apparently the universe is “vast and dark and makes us wonder if we are alone”.

Apparently we’re not, because we have Facebook and with Facebook you’re never alone.

That said, the video seems to be gaining serious traction. Less than half an hour after going live, the video had been nearly 4 000 likes and had been shared nearly 700 times.

“Doorbells. Airplanes. Bridges”. I think that says it all.
