Even the Twitter parody account of Zuckerberg's hoodie
had a message to provide on this historic occasion
Friends, Pokers, Likers, lend me your sleeves;
I come to you today on a momentous occasion of historic magnitude. In recent years we have been woven tightly through the threads of the social network known as Facebook.
It has brought together friends, families, and complete strangers around things you would have to stumble upon (literally) in the world around you to discover.
The hoodie represents comfort, exploration, and the connection of the world around something so pedestrian as a sweatshirt.
As Facebook begins trading publicly today, Friday May 18, 2012, wear your hoodie as I declare the Ultimate Casual Friday.
Tweet your hoodie and Facebook related photos to @zuckerbergshood
or #hoodiesup - it’s a cold world out there, we always have your back.
