It’s Facebook’s birthday today. Did you know that? We’re guessing you probably didn’t and, to be honest, neither did we until about an hour or so ago. But many happy returns all the same, Facebook, for reaching the age of 11.
To celebrate this landmark, Facebook have been encouraging users to use the hashtag #friendsday and share images with their pals and family. It’s all rather touching, and some prominent names are getting into the spirit.
Along with photos of Rooney with his wife Coleen and two young boys - Kai and Klay - the 29-year-old also shared some snaps of him alongside his club and international colleagues, Robin van Persie and Danny Welbeck among them.
“Lucky to have some great people around me! #friendsday”

Earlier on Wednesday, Rooney had expressed his best wishes for Fletcher upon his move to pastures new, and the Scot will clearly be missed by the England captain having spent over 10 seasons together at Old Trafford.
“Just wanted to to take this opportunity to wish both Darren Fletcher and Anderson good luck in the next stage of their careers,” Rooney posted on his official Facebook page.
“Great lads and it was a pleasure to play with them both!”
