During our eighth birthday celebrations last Friday, we noticed people tweeting the very first photo they’d ever uploaded to the site. What an awesome idea! We were more than happy to encourage everyone else to join in, and you blew us away with your responses. Warm fuzzy feelings ensued and even the White House took part and shared their first photo!

Here’s a visual smörgåsbord of what people shared:
