Just 10 years ago Facebook was a project in a student’s dorm; now, it has 1.2 billion monthly users. Today, on its 10th birthday, we ask: has Facebook changed your life?
In the last decade, it has attracted millions of people who use it to communicate with friends, post updates on their life, share photographs, change their relationship status, or to simply click ‘like’.
Last week, the social network heavyweight reported record revenues of 2.5 billion dollars (£1.5 billion) from 750 million daily users.
Its story began in February 2004 when Harvard psychology student Mark Zuckerberg launched the social networking site from his room.
Thefacebook.com - as it was originally called - proved an instant hit, allowing Harvard undergraduates to create basic online profiles and display personal information and photos.
Facebook.com was purchased in August 2005 and the following month US high schools were allowed to sign up.
So, has Facebook changed your life? Have it helped you keep in touch with friends, or damaged your real-work relationships? Will you still be using it in 10 years time?
