The first video was uploaded to YouTube.

Facebook, then just a year old, dropped “the” from its old URL “thefacebook.com” after acquiring “facebook.com” for $200K.

Wow, I had to check your facts, because it seems like YouTube is older than Facebook. But you’re right! Probably a symptom of being old and, therefore, not seeing FB until 2007 or so.
