Happy 10th Birthday, Facebook. They Made You a Video to Celebrate

Take a walk down Memory Lane with Facebook—and try not to wince at those "incredible" status updates and photos you shared 10 years ago.

My, how you've grown. Today Facebook notched its 10th anniversary, and it's celebrating by showing its users how they've shared with the network over the years. 

In sentimental "Look-back" videos, the network's 1.2 billion users can get a glimpse of their milestones since joining: a film reel of first moments, most-appreciated status updates, shared photos and significant life updates. 

The last decade has seen the website spread from one screen in a Harvard dorm room to those of more than a billion active users—170 million new members in 2013. With recent reports that Facebook's prevalence with the teen population is weakening, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerburg told NBC's "Today" show that the company is focusing on "serving all the different groups that use" the service, including "every demographic in every country."

Zuckerberg popped up in newsfeeds everywhere last week, with the announcement of "Paper"—Facebook's new app that enables readers to write, film and share stories via mobile phones.

The app was designed by couple Sharon Hwang and Mike Matas, who seek to transform users' newsfeeds into more of a "museum," with higher quality, "more digestible" information.

"If you provide better tools for people to create content, it will inspire people to create better content," Hwang told Refinery29.com.

But before you reconsider posting that Instagram photo of your scrumptious lunch, take a stroll through your relationship with Facebook.
