"The Facebook" and "The Google"

Class -

Remember when I mentioned that Facebook used to be known as "The Facebook". It started out as "The Facebook" - actually "thefacebook.com", since it really came from the book version of a Harvard University facebook. The company later changed their name to just "Facebook" or "facebook.com". Here is one of the stories behind this switch -

Also, as promised, I mentioned: "The Google". No, Google (google.com) wasn't initially "thegoogle.com". "The Google" term came from this famous person in this interview:
