Facebook-10th-birthday

Back in the dorm room of Harvard, there was a person working on & on & on, with sleepless nights and of course munching a pie of pizza to keep going. That’s how the social revolution started on Feb. 4, 2004 with the launch of thefacebook.com

Mr. Zuckerburg was definitely not aiming to confine this concept within the college boundaries. Indeed his concept had started emotionally connecting the world. It is also to be noted that since 2004 till 2009, Facebook didn’t earn any profits, but when they started coming, they flowed like sea. As per the latest statistics, last year Facebook reported a profit of some $1.5 billion on nearly $8 billion in revenues.

Going back in the timeline, the very year when this platform was launched, 1 million users had already joined the network and by that time the photo upload feature was not even introduced. Such was the power of Facebook and so it is now.

During this decade run, Facebook experimented and introduced many features like news feed, timeline, like buttons and others. It was able to create raves among social communities and why not it would be so magical. After all it re-defined the connectivity scopes of the internet into an individual, personal, emotional and social thread that started weaving the entire world.
