The social networking platform, Facebook, turned 10 on 4th February, 2014. In this decade old journey, Facebook created disruptions in the field of information sharing.

Started from a humble dorm-room of prestigious Harvard University, Facebook now has a massively huge office space in Menlo Park, California.

Cheers to the spirit of the Facebook team, whose members made sure people can stay connected with their friends and celebrate every moment of their lives online.
