On April 21, Facebook celebrated the "Like" button's first birthday.

They grow up so fast, don't they?

It seems like only yesterday CEO Mark Zuckerberg took the stage at the F8 developers conference to announce the advent of the "Like," along with a host of other Facebook expansions.

Created to take the place of Facebook's "Become a fan" social feature, the "Like" button was a hit from the start.

"50,000 websites installed the Like button in its first week, and that number rose to 100,000 in less than a month," writes Mashable.

According to Facebook, 10,000 new websites are adding this social tool every day.

Despite users' requests for an accompanying "Dislike" option, Facebook has not announced plans to modify the "Like" button.
