MarketingProfs B2B Forum is going virtual... with a twist. Don’t miss it.

On Feb. 4, 2004, Facebook was launched—and changed the world.

That's not hyperbole. Now, 10 years later, one out of every 12 people on Earth has a Facebook profile.

Moreover, if Facebook were a country, it'd be the third largest by population.

To see Facebook's journey to such enormous popularity, take a look at some milestones from its past 10 years, highlighted in the following infographic by DPFOC:

August 2005: The domain is bought for $200,000.

September 2006: Facebook News Feed is launched.

November 2007: Facebook Pages and Self-Service Ads Platform is launched.

April 2008: Facebook Chat allows people to instant-message friends.

February 2009: The "Like" button is introduced.
