It’s hard to believe, but today marks ten years since Facebook first came to life on the worldwide web.

On February 4, 2004, Mark Zuckerberg launched thefacebook.com from his dorm room at Harvard, and it didn’t take long for the social media site to become a massive hit. Facebook now boasts over one billion users, with nearly half of those aged 18-34 checking the site as soon as they wake up.

Zuckerberg posted a special message on the social media site in celebration of the event, saying “It’s been an amazing journey so far, and I’m so grateful to be a part of it. It’s rare to be able to touch so many people’s lives, and I try to remind myself to make the most of every day and have the biggest impact I can.”

Happy birthday, Facebook! Life just wouldn’t be the same without you.
