You know, Facebook is more than just a rapidly growing collection of memorials! In honor of Facebook's 10th anniversary, HadoopSphere pointed to Facebook's influence on the open source Big Data community by assembling a list of major contributions, as well as an infographic to show it all off.

In other words, there have been some significant contributions. Check out HadoopSphere's infographic:
