CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Ten years ago Tuesday, the world got a new addiction.

Facebook was born in a Harvard dorm room.

Mark Zuckerberg created the site to help students keep in touch with friends.

Now, there are more than a billion friends on the site.

Facebook is a $150 billion company, with 6,300 employees.

Young people have mostly abandoned Facebook for other social media.

But the site is still growing around the world, and it's making big money from ad sales.
