Facebook turned 10 years old today, and the social network is trying its best to get you misty eyed in celebration. If you head over to this link, Facebook will create a personalized video that takes you on a journey from the moment you first joined until today.
The video will rehash some of your most popular posts and photos, many of which we’d bet you’ve completely forgotten about.
In addition to providing you with your very own ‘oh-my-goodness-did-i-really-look-like-that?!” experience, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg also decided to say a few words to mark the occasion. Here’s a snippet from his 10th Anniversary blog post:
When I reflect on the last 10 years, one question I ask myself is: why were we the ones to build this? We were just students. We had way fewer resources than big companies. If they had focused on this problem, they could have done it.
The only answer I can think of is: we just cared more… We just cared more about connecting the world than anyone else. And we still do today.
