While you were sleeping, the Internet never stopped. And it's amazing what the Internet comes up with.

Check out what people are tweeting, sharing and talking about.

Happy birthday, Facebook!

The social network co-founded by Mark Zuckerberg in a Harvard dorm room turns 10 on Tuesday. Facebook now has 1.2 billion users. It's interesting to consider how the site has given new meaning to words like "tag," "unfriend" and "wall." Facebook photos were launched in 2005, the news feed and expanded registration came in 2006 and the "like" button didn't come until 2009!

Coca-Cola Super Bowl ad ignites online debate

Coca-Cola's Super Bowl commercial Sunday night was a moving tribute to America's diversity, featuring people of different races and ethnicity to the classic song "America the Beautiful." The song was sung in different languages in addition to English, which stirred several people on Twitter:

"I didn't like the coca cola commercial last night because I couldn't understand it," and "I am truly disappointed in @Coca Cola for the offensive #SpeakAmerican commercial last night. Speak English!"

However - many people have praised the ad for the very same reasons. It's been a top trending topic on Twitter since the Super Bowl.
