Facebook Takes Us Behind the Scenes with Humans of New York for 10th Anniversary


We never get sick of going behind the scenes with Brandon Stanton and Humans of New York, probably because we never tire of hearing Stanton’s story. An amateur photographer who moved to New York in 2010 with two suitcases and a goal has somehow managed to start a movement that has attracted millions of followers, raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for charity, and spawned many a Humans of _____ copycat.

At 2.8 million followers, HONY is one of the most successful pages on Facebook’s massive network, and so Facebook chose it as one of the 10 ‘stories’ they would tell for the site’s 10th Anniversary.

So check out the video embedded above for one more look at how Brandon and Humans of New York works, and if you want more HONY, be sure to visit our previous coverage of the project by clicking here.
