Facebook turned 10 years old today, and to celebrate, the social network has created a customized video for each of its users that chronicles their history on the site since joining. Titled "A Look Back" the video showcases everything from the users very first interactions with the site, all the way to their most liked post. You can can take a look back by watching your custom video at this custom page on Facebook's website.

Not surprisingly, my most liked photos are from my days as a professional photographer, and my most liked and most commented post are from both very high points and very low points in my life since joining Facebook back in 2008. While the 1 minute long video was a nice trip down memory lane, the technology behind generating a custom 1 minute video for every registered Facebook user is what interest me the most. Facebook as not released any information on how they did it, but I suspect that HTML 5 and the Open Graph API were used heavily.
