Facebook is now 10 years old! Happy 10th anniversary to Facebook!

Happy Birthday to Facebook! This social networking site which first started in a humble manner is now one of the world’s most famous websites on the internet. It is also the second most popular website in the world, just behind Google, the search engine. I believed everyone that read my blog here would have his or her own Facebook account. Some may even have two or more just for fun. This post is in dedication to celebrate the amazing 10th anniversary of Facebook. Let us look back into a bit of history on the founding of Facebook.


Facebook was founded on February 4, 2004 by Mark Zuckerberg with his college roommates and fellow Harvard University students; Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes. The founders had initially limited the website’s membership to Harvard students, but due to extreme popularity and support it gained, it later expanded to colleges, high schools and finally to everyone with access to internet across the world except than in few countries where it is banned. Luckily, in Malaysia, we can use it.

Thanks to their innovative ideas and creation, we have now had a brilliant medium to share and connect with the online social community. We can simply do so many things; updating our status, sharing our feelings, uploading photos, albums or videos, playing games with friends, tagging friends, liking friend’s posts, sending messages, creating groups, events or pages, online chatting, adjusting our own profile, discussing latest news, etc. It is just so convenient. It breaks border and boundary. Facebook must be the first website you open once a day starts. Right? In current days, it is like we couldn’t live without Facebook.

Having over 1 billion monthly active users, we couldn’t question the impact that Facebook has generated to the present society across the world. In fact, I have read Mark Zuckerberg’s post on his feeling to Facebook’s 10th anniversary and I’m quite touched by his message. You can read it here: https://www.facebook.com/zuck/posts/10101250930776491 .  The CEO of Facebook, Sheryl Sandberg, clarified “He (Mark) always said Facebook was started not just to be a company, but to fulfill a vision of connecting the world”. And he, now a billionaire, made it. Facebook page has changed over the years, but its objective remains solid and clear.

In conjunction with Facebook’s 10th birthday, everyone of us (Facebook users) got to see our personal look-back clip and we may choose whether to share it or keep it to ourself. Nice work but I wish the video to be slightly longer (now it’s only taking 1 minute and 2 second). The clip reminded me that I joined Facebook in 2008. So, I have been in the site for 6 years. Not bad. Coincidentally, 2008 was also the year I started out this blog. Anyway, Happy Birthday once again to Facebook! Congratulations for what it has become and achieve today!


Happy 10th Anniversary, Facebook!
