The world wide social networking service, Facebook turned 15 yesterday! The Facebook, shortly called ‘FB’ was launched on February 4th 2004 by Mark Zuckerberg, who were just 19 then, with his college roommate and fellow Harvard University student Eduardo Saverin.

Later, they expanded membership eligibility to employees of several companies, including Apple Inc. and Microsoft.
