Facebook marked its ten year anniversary today with a message from Mark Zuckerberg on his profile page. The social media giant first premiered to Harvard students on this day in 2004 and has grown into a worldwide sensation over the last ten years.

Zuckerberg thanked the world for their support in making Facebook what it is today and discussed his feelings about the social media platform.

“It's been an amazing journey so far, and I'm so grateful to be a part of it. It's rare to be able to touch so many people's lives, and I try to remind myself to make the most of every day and have the biggest impact I can.”

With over 900 million active monthly users the website has plenty to offer. Its goal is to keep people connected to friends and family, allow them to keep up with world events and as a forum to discuss things that matter most to them.
