Facebook is a world-famous social network. It was founded by Mark Zuckerberg and his Harvard roommates in February 2004. Today, Facebook has almost 3 billion monthly users.
From Harvard closed version to world-famous
The story of the Facebook invention is one of the most talked about topics. That is why you most likely have heard it more than once. The name of the platform comes from the face book directories that are often got by American students. Initially, the platform was available only to Harvard students, and then it spread to other universities: Columbia, Stanford, and Yale. After that, all students from the Ivy League can create a profile on the social network and communicate with their friends. Only after 2 years after its launch, every user that achieves 13 years old can register.
As we mentioned above, Facebook claims that they have around 3 billion users, to be more precisely, 2.45 billion. But we do not know is it true. Like any popular social network, Facebook faces the problem of fake accounts. Therefore, there are a lot of critics and doubts about this topic.
Connect with people around the world
Today, Facebook allows you to connect the people and relatives, no matter how far away from you they are. You can create the profile, add friends, post on their page, share the events, and comment on the posts. One of the relatively new features is Story. It allows users to create content that will disappear after 24 hours. The Facebook platform can be accessed from various devices and platforms, including Android, iOS, Microsoft Windows, and macOS.
Besides, Facebook is a powerful platform for advertising. For this, you need to create the Business page and tune the ad on the target audience. Facebook was not once found himself in the center of public scandals and mass criticism. First of all, due to its dependent nature. Many users complain that when they log into a social network, they no longer have power over themselves and cannot stop. The app has a clean design and good navigation. The second important point is the issue of privacy and the use of user data for advertising purposes. People accused Facebook of helping to spread the fake news and false information. Although, despite all these factors, the users’ base is continuing to grow rapidly.

For this, Facebook has all the necessary tools: you can create the groups, secret chats, send and receive private messages, share and browse the events near you, and do other interesting things.
