Facebook Turns 10: What Does It Mean To You?

facebook unfollowSo, the hugely popular social network known as Facebook has just turned 10, and in the past decade, it has been quite an adventure since Mark Zuckerberg and a bunch of his friends kicked off TheFacebook.com in a dorm room on February 4, 2004. In fact, Zuckerberg and his friends have become billionaires since then, and extremely young ones at that. Over the past 10 years, Facebook has managed to attract a whopping 1.1 billion users, and imagine the amount of time spent on the social network – posting up of food photos, plenty of selfies, a race between your group to get as many Likes as possible, holiday photos, the works. All of this would translate to a whole lot of time, and you can make use of TIME’s calculator in order to check out the number of days of your life you have spent on Facebook.

Facebook has yet to publicize data on just how often one logs in, although chances are pretty good that they have such information at their disposal. The app in question from TIME would run through the timestamps on every single post in your feed all the way until it arrives at the first post, where it will then use that as the estimated date of when your profile was created.

What does Facebook’s 10th birthday mean to you? In the course of turning 10, however, Facebook too, might run into some hiccups, especially with the dispute concerning their Paper app.
