This Is How Facebook Has Changed Over the Past 12 Years

Happy anniversary, Facebook! What is the gift theme for 12 years? It's hot fudge, right? Quick, someone pour hot fudge all over Mark Zuckerberg!

To celebrate the anniversary of Facebook's debut on the World Wide Web, we thought we'd take a look back at what the social media site used to look like, way back when it was only available for Harvard students and "poking" was still a thing. Remember poking? That was a weird time for everyone.
If you've seen The Social Network, then you know that Facebook started as just a website for Harvard students. This is what the login page looked like back then. Notice how "Harvard University" is in giant letters? We get it, Mark.

By 2005, it was opening up to other schools, and we remember checking the login page every single day to see if our school was finally added to the list. If not, we just stole our login from friends at other schools to stalk our high school enemies. Kids today don't know how good they have it because Facebook has always been available to them and everyone they knew. Back in 2005, the social media struggle was real.
Above, Mark shares a photo of his profile from 2005 at a Facebook conference. The profile pages were plain or "minimalistic," if you want to give it a fancy spin. There was also a notification on your profile that said "This is you." You know, to make sure you knew who you were looking at. Plus, status updates all had to begin with "is" so it always read something like: "John is annoyed that his friend Brad won't let him burn Mariah's The Emancipation of Mimi album."
