Facebook is hugely popular among college and high school students. And a staggering number of companies use Facebook to establish social networks. We hadn’t really known how widespread business use was of the very cool platform.

We had an expansive interview with co-founder Chris Hughes about Facebook’s early beginnings, its business model, privacy concerns and the future of social networking. We were amazed to learn from Chris that over 10,000 companies use Facebook.

BTW, Chris just graduated Harvard this spring.  Unlike his two partners who dropped out after their sophmore year, Chris received his degree. Congrats, Chris!

This is an incredible story. Wow.
