    10 Years of Facebook, the history of a Social Giant an infographic

    Facebook

    This Mashable infographic charts some of the biggest developments – both the highs and the lows – as the social network giant powered its way to over a billion members.

    It always makes me smile how each time a major revision happens there is often a huge backlash and then a few months later the public accept it and wonder how they ever managed before.

    Facebook turns 10 on February 4 and is celebrating by giving its audience of 1.23 billion a way to relive their digital history on the network with a special release called Look Back.

    * in this infographic the WhatsApp takeover is not included yet.

    As Mark Zuckerberg reflects upon Facebook’s first 10 years today, he’s encouraging the community he built to do the same. Starting this morning, hundreds of millions of Facebook users will receive a notification that a video summary of their life so far on Facebook is ready to watch. Each user’s ”Look Back” compilation contains 15 or so of their most-liked photos, statuses, and life events set to a catchy tune. The videos are a bit cheesy, but are potent reminders that for many of us, Facebook has become a very normal way to document our daily lives.

    Facebook’s plan for the next decade is to spread the social-networking love to emerging products. Closer to home, the company is campaigning for coolness and reinventing itself with a series of standalone applications that present Facebook in alternative formats. Monday, the 10-year old company released Paper for iPhone owners in the US. The application presents News Feed and other news in a digestible format better suited for smartphones. Paper seems to be an imagining of what the social network would be like if it were built in 2014.Vergelijkbare berichten:
