Facebook turns 8

It was 8 years ago when today’s most fascinating social network was born. Initially before it’s public launch, it was called thefacebook.com which was only available to Howard University students. Later, it was also made available to students of other universities of United States. On 4th February 2008, Mark Zukerberg  renamed to domain name and launched what we know today as “FACEBOOK”.

Since then, Facebook has remarkably grown in all aspects. Users, money, employees, everything. Facebook has not only put Mark Zukerberg – the founder of Facebook, in the list of top and youngest millionaires but also helped a lot of start ups, non profits and other companies grow, interact and increase sales.

Today in 2012, Facebook still continues to grow it’s users and it’s most likely to have about 1 billion users by August this year. This might be a joke unless you know the actual amount of people living on surface of our earth. Click HERE to read some interesting facts about the population of the world.
