Mark Zuckerberg and everyone at Facebook headquarters celebrates Feburary 4 as Facebook's birthday. They say it was the day Zuckerberg launched the social network from his Harvard dorm room. 

In 2004, "are you friends with ____" took on a whole new meaning. You didn't just make friends, you accepted them or denied them on your computer all because of Mark Zuckerberg. 

On February 4, 2017, Facebook will turn 13. Can you even believe it? Thirteen years old. Time flies when you're liking, commenting on and sharing posts.

Want to celebrate? Facebook is taking it back to what it is all about; friends. They've started celebrating their birthday as "Friends Day" and if you've been online lately, you've noticed the #friendsday videos circulating already.
