Today Facebook turns 10 years old and to celebrate that the company made a Facebook Anniversary video with a theme of showing how excited a kid can get when he or she turns 10, they showed a lot of kids from different places. The Facebook Anniversary was celebrated in order to show how much they have grown since the beginning because Facebook did make it through a simple college website to a social network that is used worldwide now and have over 1.23 billion users.
There is a lot going on the 10th Facebook Anniversary as the CEO Mark Zukerberg said in an open letter that they were just students who had a fewer resources and a big website to run than other big companies out there, but the only reason that we have made this far is that we cared too much about it. He also said that in 10 years they have been this far and within the next 10 years they are going to expand their capabilities and bring a lot more to their users and you can see that by the worth of the company right now which is $157 billion that is more than a lot of US companies out there with a long history of business than Facebook.
Along with a Facebook Anniversary video the company has come up with a tool called “a look back” which is basically a short video that sums up all you life on Facebook from when you joined, to the pictures you shared and the pictures that were most liked by your friends. Overall Facebook has done a great job and the video looks very cute.
There was a research paper from Prinston University saying that till the year 2017 Facebook would have lost 80 percent of their users about which there was a lot of discussion too, but for now the odds are with Facebook as the company generated revenue of over 1.5 billion last year. We are happy for Facebook as it has given us an easy way to connect with everyone and we hope it will stay there to do so. If you want to watch your “a look back”, the tool that we talked about earlier, here is the link.
