Facebook marks 10th birthday with personalized 'Look Back' videos

Facebook marks 10th birthday with personalized 'Look Back' videos
By Salvador Rodriguez February 4, 2014, 1:24 p.m.


Facebook turned 10 Tuesday, and it's letting users get in on its birthday celebration with a new feature that creates personalized videos highlighting users' top content over the years.

The feature is called "Look Back" and can be accessed when users go to facebook.com/lookback. That link takes users to a video created from their history on the social network.

The personal movie starts by recounting when users joined with one of their first profile pictures. It continues by showing users their "first moments," meaning some of their popular early posts, followed by their most liked posts, including pictures and status updates. From there, the video shows users' popular pictures they have shared over the years.


The videos are a bit cheesy, but it's an enjoyable bit of nostalgia that's only one minute long. Facebook also allows users to share their videos by clicking on a "Share Your Movie" button located at the top right corner of the page.

    Sorry, Today Isn't Facebook's 10th 'Birthday'

    The Huffington Post | by Dino Grandoni



    Exactly 10 years ago today, Mark Zuckerberg opened thefacebook.com to every student at Harvard. Today, the $150 billion Internet company that the little campus website would become commemorates that moment as its birthday. But that doesn't mean you have to.

    Facebook pumped a lot of energy into the timing of its Feb. 4, 10th anniversary, including the release of a new iOS app and a rare interview with CEO Mark Zuckerberg. The PR effort paid off. "Paper," which converts News Feeds into an iPhone-sized magazine, was well received, while Zuckerberg came off as affable and was able to erase some of his bratty image in his talk with Bloomberg BusinessWeek.

    But like any website -- or, really, like any big, complicated project that people undertake -- Facebook was not "born" on a specific day.
