Happy Birthday: Facebook turns eight today

By Emil Protalinski | February 4, 2012, 2:40pm PST

Summary: Facebook may seem like it has been around for quite some time, but the company is only eight years old today. Happy Birthday Facebook!

Facebook, the world?s most popular social network, launched on February 4, 2004. That year, Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg was planning to sell Facebook off to a bigger company, but he ended up building it into a multi-billion dollar business instead, which just filed to go public two days ago. As of December 31, 2011, Facebook has over 845 million monthly users, over 483 million daily users, and over 425 million mobile users. Today, the company is eight years old. Happy Birthday Facebook!
