Happy birthday to Facebook! The company turns nine years old today. After launching on February 4, 2004 in Mark Zuckerberg’s Harvard dorm room, the site quickly gained popularity throughout the Harvard campus. Shortly thereafter, the site expanded to other universities and the rest as they say is history.
Facebook currently has over 1 billion active users, with a growing number of them using mobile devices. Be sure to read our latest Facebook earnings coverage from last week for all the latest Facebook numbers.
