If The Social Network has taught us anything, it's that Facebook is awesome and Mark Zuckerberg really likes hitting F5. Or maybe we missed the point.

Anyway, the first version of The Facebook launched on the Feb. 4, 2004, which means it will soon be an incredible 10 years since Zuckerberg and his small group of programmers started a journey that would change online social interaction forever.

Facebook has its good and bad points - the ability to connect millions of people is unrivalled while the challenge of keeping any kind of privacy is a constant one. Those debates are going to continue for the foreseeable future, right now you can find out just how much you've given to the site since it was publicly available in September 2006.

Over on the Time website, you can enter in your details and get a value in days, hours in minutes for how much time you've given the service. It's a rough estimate based on the number of posts and needs access to your Facebook account but it's a very cool counter.
