Today is Facebook's 20th birthday, which means the social media platform is probably at college right now. Ironic, since that's where it all started – famously initially a 'campus' app, Facebook has arguably, for better or worse, since changed the entire concept of online relationships. But one thing that hasn't changed a huge amount is Facebook's logo.

Since 2004, Facebook's colour has been blue, and that's still the case here and now in 2024. But in the last twenty years, we've seen the company change its name and wordmark a few times, most recently in 2021 (although you might have to squint to see the difference with that one.) Here's how the logo has changed over the years – and if you're looking for more design inspiration, check out the best logos of all time.
