Remember This? Here's What Your Facebook Profile Used To Look Like

There sure have been a few changes over the years...

2007

Facebook has done a lot of chopping and changing since it was first launched in 2004 – and indeed, since it first went global between 2006 and 2008. 

And while the older versions of the site were once so familiar to us, they now look insanely dated, and quite strange.

Here's a visual history of what the site used to look like.

Long before it exploded around the world, this is the first edition of the homepage – which was also the individual profile page – that users became used to.

Back when you had to list your own interests, rather than Facebook telling you what you liked. Good times, eh?

Remember how you used to be able to line up those top five photos to make one long image?

Like, if you had a lot of time on your hands?

Oh hello, cover pictures. How did we get this far without you?

Also... the infamous 'timeline'.

Bit messy on the links front, but all in all this was a major step towards the Facebook we know today.

And 2015 up until today...

Just think: one day, even this is going to seem retro.
