In celebration of it’s 10th birthday, Facebook has rolled out “A Look Back,” a personalized video of your timeline’s most shared moments.  It’s a lot like the “year in review” tool it offers at the end of each year, only it’s a compilation of your entire time on the platform.

Reflecting back on these 10 years, Facebook has changed the way we interact and has shaped our culture in ways none of us imagined.  With 1.2 billion monthly active users, the platform has helped us connect, reunited us with childhood friends, allowed us a place to grieve over lost loved ones, given rise to a new form of marketing, turned “friend” into a verb and given countless of us social media strategists a satisfying career.

What’s next for Facebook? In a post on Mark Zuckerberg’s Timeline he says:

Today, social networks are mostly about sharing moments. In the next decade, they’ll also help you answer questions and solve complex problems.”

Thanks Facebook – here’s to you! Get your personalized video at Facebook: A Look Back.
