  Facebook,the only book which we keep studying these days without getting bored. And the only friend of yours which reminds you about your loved one's birthday. Today that is 4th Feb is Facebook's birthday. Exactly 15 years ago,on this day,Facebook was launched that is on 04 Feb,2004 by 19 years old Zuckerberg and his roommates, TheFacebook.com,on humanity. At that point, they thought they would achieve success if at least 250,000 users come in the platform. And,it also didn't took more than a decade and a half since it added four zeroes to the figure,transforming it to the most powerful source of communication.

So,let's rewind the time back.......

Year 2004.............

  The Facebook.com was just 7 months old,when the ConnectU ,which was a startup founded by Harvard students allegedly told that Zuckerberg stole their idea and breached on oral contract he made to develop a social network for Harvard students. Another thing which happened was the Facemash incident. It was basically a site which got him in trouble because the app was using student's photo without their permission. But the good thing was, Harvard Connection founders came to know about it and realizing how powerful Facebook can be in the upcoming years,they helped Zuckerberg in building their site.

Year 2006..............

 Until 2006, Facebook was just a ,what we can say, a phone directory type. Facebook was just a directory of people's profile. For checking up posts and updates,one had to jump from one's profile to another's profile. But in 2006, News Feed was launched which acted like a homepage of Facebook, where the posts and updates were listed one by one of everyone.

  But this news feed invaded user's privacy. Every action was visible to other users. Users got angry and Zuckerberg realised he messed this up totally. He tried to fix the problem after it.

Year 2007.........

   Zuckerberg after attending at an event of hundred marketers in November, introduced Facebook ads,pages for brands.By inviting brands to have their own Pages on Facebook and to amplify their Pages with ads, Facebook was not only creating a hugely successful business model, it was pushing forward a new paradigm in advertising, one that Google had already begun. Instead of offering advertisers a general audience the way television and print advertising had always done, Facebook was giving them a way to find exactly the people they wanted to reach, using all the data Facebook had collected on its users over time.

Year 2008...........

Zuckerberg was looking for help transforming his website into a legitimate business. Sheryl Sandberg, a former high ranking Treasury Dept staff,joined fb in 2008 as Cheif operating officer,turning the company's fledgling ad business into what it is today..
Year 2009......

  The new currency was invented in 2009 and it is not made up of any paper,it was the like button. Simply sharing photos was not enough so Facebook introduced the like button and soon this platform turned up into popularity contest.

Year 2010....


 Well, Facebook always kept telling that it doesn't sell users data but actually it sells users data with third parties. In 2008,it launched Fbconnect which allowed people to log into other websites through Facebook username and password. Well,it not only saved time but also one could see the friends using the website. Overtime,it evolved to Graph API which allowed developers to suck users data.

Year 2011....

The company signed consent decree in 2011. And fb promised not to misrepresent users privacy.

Year 2012....

 Before 2012,most of the users used Facebook in computers only. But with the rise of smartphone, it became a challenge for company. The pressure was increasing.

Year 2018...

Zuckerberg was  called before a more powerful committee—the US Congress—to explain Facebook's last two years of scandals, and the decade and a half of decisions that led to them. It was Zuckerberg's Big Tobacco moment: a chance for him explain the trade-offs Facebook has made between growth and privacy, a chance to question him on how Facebook treats competitors, a chance to wonder whether Facebook actually has any real competition at all.

       So,these were the 15 years of development of Facebook. Let's see what brings up in the next 15 upcoming years? What do you think? Will Facebook compromise users data again? Please share your thoughts in comments section...
