Facebook celebrates 10th birthday

2004 (Original) Profile

On Feb. 4, 2004, TheFacebook went live inside Mark Zuckerberg’s Harvard University dorm room with an interface like the one pictured above. What started as a way for Harvard students to make connections has grown into a multi-billion dollar business.

How does Zuckerberg feel about Facebook at 10? He assessed the company in a statement:

It’s been an incredible journey so far, and I’m so grateful to be a part of it. It’s been amazing to see how people have used Facebook to build a real community and help each other in so many ways. In the next decade, we have the opportunity and responsibility to connect everyone and to keep serving the community as best we can.

Facebook took some time to look back at what the company has accomplished in the past decade, but also gave users a way to remember their best moments since joining the site.

On Tuesday, Facebook launched a feature called “A Look Back,” which will show users their biggest moments since joining Facebook.

The company also put together a timeline showing the dates of key innovations and features, such as photos, the iPhone app and the acquisition of Instagram.
