With the release of the full-length trailer for the upcoming Facebook movie entitled “The Social Network”, many were caught off guard by its tagline “You don’t get to 500 million friends without making a few enemies,” as Facebook had not at that point hit the 500 million user mark.

However, this morning, Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook co-founder and CEO, announced the social media giant has officially crossed the 500 million user threshold. To celebrate the achievement, Facebook put together a collection of stories that users have shared with the network’s employees about the impact Facebook has had on their lives.

The content has been morphed into a new application called Facebook Stories where any user can share their own story and read hundreds of others, categorized by themes and locations around the world.

While you’re reading the new Facebook Stories, be sure to check out and become a fan of the recently launched Ski Channel Facebook page where you can gain access to exclusive photos, videos, and interact with ski fans worldwide.
