Facebook is the world’s biggest social networking service, the site already has more than one billion registered users, most of them are active users that login to their accounts at least once a month. Facebook’s popularity relies on its wide variety of tools and features which allow users to easily communicate and share with their family and friends online. This social networking service is a great platform to make friends, have fun, make business, promote and support causes, play games, and more.
Facebook.com was founded by Mark Zuckerberg in 2004, along with his college roommates Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes. In the beginning only Harvard Students were able to join and use the site, then they started accepting members from other universities, eventually they started accepting high school students as well, until finally anyone over 13 could join this truly amazing social networking service.
FB.com gained a lot of traction quickly, before you knew it everyone was a member, and that eventually led to Facebook’s IPO last year, which has been considered by most financial experts a “big bust”.
