Bloomberg Businessweek unveiled a cover story on Facebook’s ten year anniversary. “Facebook Hits Puberty,” reads the headline, layered over a large photo of Mark Zuckerberg, clad in his signature hoody, arms crossed.
“‘Puberty.’ Not a word one often sees on the cover of a magazine. I wonder if there’s a reason for that,” the self-aware magazine wrote in a behind the scenes look at how the cover got made.
It’s true! There is a reason for that. Puberty is awkward. Even the word puberty is awkward.
Leaving aside the fact that we thought that ten was a bit early to puberty (apparently, ten is the new twelve when it comes to human development) and the fact that “hitting puberty” is usually the just start of the awkward stage, we wondered what other headlines Businessweek could have used to convey the idea that the social media network is now a pubescent tween.
