Happy birthday, Facebook

On Feb. 4, 2004 — 11 years ago today, if you’re keeping score at home — a little-known Harvard student named Mark Zuckerberg launched a small social networking site called thefacebook.

You may have noticed that, 4,018 days later, it’s grown a bit. A name change here, an acquisition or two there, mix in 1.39 billion monthly users and $12.47 billion in annual revenue, and Facebook has become a $211 billion company.
