Infographic: Facebook’s rise to success

In just 10 years Facebook has reached more than 1 billion users and $5.1 billion in revenue. Get a recap of the success story here.

It’s a story most people know well: Mark Zuckerberg launched Facebook in February 2004 from his Harvard dorm room, and it was an immediate success. By December 2004, the site already had 1 million users.

Now, more than 1 billion users, 30 offices and 5,794 employees later, we’re celebrating Facebook’s 10th birthday.

An infographic from The Drum charts the social network’s growth from a dorm room hobby to a $7 billion company. Some notable events along the way include the news feed launching in September 2006, the like button premiering in February 2009 and the company trading on the NASDAQ in May 2012.
