Facebook will update its profile design in the next couple of weeks, a change rendered momentous if only by the millions who have known no other interface to their obsession. Below, check out the new look. Then compare it to Facebook profile designs from a past as distant as 2005. You remember the time, right? It was before Facebook's spammy apps, before the stalker-friendly News Feed, and before they let in all the jailbait high-schoolers. Come, journey with us into the lost youth of Mark Zuckerberg.
The earliest Facebook profile we could find comes from 2005, though the site started up in 2004. Back then, you needed an SAT score of 1350 to use "thefacebook.com" Or at least a good personal essay "revised" by your guidance counselor.
A fuller look at the profile in later 2005. Note the Matrix-y 1s and 0s flowing around the departed "Facebook guy."
By 2006, at the time this profile screenshot was taken, thefacebook had become just "Facebook" and already founder Mark Zuckerberg had caved to hoi polloi. Bennington.
Here, from 2007, the Facebook profile almost as it is now. But without Vampires, Zombies or that ever-begging "Causes" application.
The Facebook profile of the future, arriving on your 3G iPhone in just a few weeks.
