Facebook turns 9

The famous social networking site, Facebook which was launched on 4th February 2004 turns nine! The website was co-founded by Mark Zuckerberg, Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes. In its early days, it was called thefacebook.com, the name was later changed to just Facebook.

These nine years have brought some major transformations. Launched for the consumption at Harvard, the website now has over a billion active users, 240 billion photos and 1 trillion connections, phew!

Well, Facebook has something new for its users on its ninth birthday, Graph Search (expected to be available for users soon). We have a picture of the website, at the time of launch.
