It may not seem like that long ago for some of you, but Facebook has just turned 10 years old today. Back on Feburary 4th 2004, a young Mark Zuckerberg launched what was known as, TheFacebook, a social network designed to connect students at Harvard in one place instead of the schools individual dorm pages.
While many doubted that TheFacebook would ever take off, no one but Zuckerberg himself ever dreamed that it would become the dominant social media platform in the world. With more than 1.23 billion active monthly users, Facebook is a powerhouse like never before seen on the internet. More people use the service every day than any other social / profile website in the world, a trend that is projected to continue into the foreseeable future.
