The largest social media network in the world, Facebook, on February 4 celebrated its 12th anniversary, and it is celebrating the special date by regarding it as a Friends Day, calling people everywhere to join in the celebration of friendship and connections.

Facebook is modeled on global friendship and connections, ensuring that lives are changed and powerful things are achieved via mutual connections.

“To celebrate, we are releasing an updated degrees of separation statistic, highlighting inspiring stories about the power of friendship, and launching new products to further encourage our community to rally around their friends today,” Facebook wrote.

Facebook revealed that people everywhere are more connected today than they were before the advent of social media, and the separation between people is fast closing up by the day to reflect the world becoming a unified whole of familiar people.

To help make a sense of Friends Day, Facebook is delivering a number of personalized videos that millions of people everywhere can watch to celebrate the importance of friendship and global connections.

“These videos stitch together special moments with your friends in a short film that can be edited and shared,” the social media revealed. “People can view their video at the top of News Feed, or by clicking “Watch Yours” below a friend’s Friends Day video.”

Facebook is also releasing two sticker packs known as “Best Friends” and “Friendship” which people can use to show other friends that they care about them. These packs are now available to download for free in the Sticker Store, which can be accessed in Messenger or at facebook.com/stickers.
