Facebook Celebrates 20th Anniversary and Reflects on Two Decades of Innovation

Facebookwhich celebrates its 20th anniversary on February 4, was initially launched by Mark Zuckerberg in 2004 from his Harvard dorm room as ‘’ and remains a global phenomenon. The platform has evolved into a ubiquitous space that connects people from all over the world. Starting in 2023, Facebook will have a monthly user base that will exceed 3 billion people, which represents a three percent increase from the previous year.

To mark this milestone, the 39-year-old tech mogul, who now runs Facebook’s parent company Meta, took to Instagram to share a captivating video with images and videos spanning the past two decades. In a reflective post, Zuckerberg expressed his gratitude for the incredible journey, stating, “20 years ago I launched something. Along the way, a lot of amazing people came together and we built some more amazing things. We’re still at it and the best is yet to come.”

The montage, set to the soundtrack of Aerosmith’s “Dream On,” includes glimpses of Zuckerberg’s early collaborators, particularly Facebook co-founder Eduardo Saverin, with whom he had a well-documented falling out.

Also present in the images are Zuckerberg’s wife, Priscilla Chan, and Meta’s former COO, Sheryl Sandberg, who resigned in 2022. The clips provide a look back at the evolution of both the platform and personal life and Zuckerberg’s professional for the last two decades.

In a series of posts on his account, Zuckerberg shared then-and-now photos showing the transformation of technology over 20 years. One of the images captures him sitting at a desk comparing two very different computers from different eras.

It’s worth noting that Facebook underwent significant transformation at the end of 2021 changing its parent company name to “Meta.” This shift was driven by Zuckerberg’s vision of the “metaverse” as the next big computing platform emphasizing immersive virtual worlds.

Looking ahead, Zuckerberg-led Meta Platforms will distribute its first dividend with tech mogul receiving an annual payout approximately $700 million from social media giant. This measure means notable financial development for Meta and its stakeholders.
