On Thursday, Facebook announced sweeping changes at F8, their annual developers conference. The event was held in San Francisco and featured comedy, surprise announcements and a poignant video of a Facebooker growing up before our eyes.

Comedian Andy Samberg kicked off the event with his best impersonation of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who followed the performance with a keynote that introduced a ton of new Facebook features--from a revamped profile to new ways to share content. Add all that to the addition of the Ticker module and revamped News Feed announced earlier in the week, and Facebook just got a huge facelift.
