It was 10 years ago today that TheFacebook.com first surged to life in a Harvard dorm room.
In the decade since, the rise of Facebook has been good for a whole lot of people: Mark Zuckerberg, obviously, and your cousin who just had a baby, for another.
But there's one type of person who's truly made the site work for them – celebrities, who not only use the social network to speak directly to their fans but offer the outside world an intimate, unfiltered look at their lives, work and wisdom.
On the occasion of Facebook's 10th anniversary, here are the 10 celebs who deserve a place in your newsfeed.

Robert Downey Jr. is no longer the highest-earning actor in Hollywood. That honor now belongs to a different man of steel – Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.
Topping Forbes's new list of the top-grossing actors of 2013, Johnson's star vehicles – which included the action flicks Snitch, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Pain & Gain and Fast & Furious 6 – took in a combined $1.3 billion in global ticket sales and cemented his place as this year's most bankable movie star.
Downey Jr. – who topped last year's list of highest-grossing movie stars thanks to the hugely successful The Avengers – came in a close second to Johnson this year, despite starring in Iron Man 3, the top-earning movie of 2013, which raked in $1.2 billion.

"I'm going to take care of her in all ways. I take a lot of pride in that today."
