If you’re a FaceBook user, you may have already heard that today is FaceBook’s seventh birthday, as the company was launched on February 4th, 2004 from Mark Zuckerberg’s Harvard University dorm room using the domain name thefacebook.com.
However, as we’re all aware, FaceBook has since grown, quite impressively, into a social networking website with close to 600 million users. At the time of this writing, the San Francisco based start-up has over 1,700 employees, with offices in 12 countries.
In order to celebrate FaceBook’s 7th birthday, the company has posted a status message on the their profile saying “To the 1.5 million of you who share our birthday today – Happy Birthday!”. Also included in this status message is a picture of a blue number 7 with a candle sticking out of the top of it. This particular status message has received 55,000 “likes” and over 9,000 comments so far.
With new users joining FaceBook every day, the website is continuing to grow. It will be interesting to see where FaceBook will be in the future, but congratulations to FaceBook on a great 7 years!
Happy birthday, FaceBook!
