Facebook is a social networking website where users can post comments, share photographs, and post links to news or other interesting content on the web, chat live, and watch short-form video.
Shared content can be made publicly accessible, or it can be shared only among a select group of friends or family, or with a single person.
Facebook was created by Mark Zuckerberg along with Edward Saverin in 2004, it started as a school-based social network at Harvard University while they both students at the college.
Facebook is user-friendly and open to everyone. Although it started out as a way to keep in touch or reconnect with long-lost friends, it rapidly became the darling of businesses that were able to closely target an audience and deliver ads directly to the people most likely to want their products or services.
Here are a few features that make Facebook so popular:
Facebook allows you to maintain a friends list and choose privacy settings to tailor who can see content on your profile.
Facebook allows you to upload photos and maintain photo albums that can be shared with your friends.
Facebook supports interactive online chat and the ability to comment on your friend’s profile pages to keep in touch, share information or to say “hi.”
Facebook supports group pages, fan pages, and business pages that let businesses use Facebook as a vehicle for social media marketing.
Facebook’s developer network delivers advanced functionality and monetization options.
You can stream video live using Facebook Live.
Chat with Facebook friends and family members, or auto-display Facebook pictures with the Facebook Portal device.
