Facebook Worlds Biggest Community Facebook Description How did Facebook
start? Facebook is a social networking service and website launched in February 2004, owned and operated by Facebook, Inc. As of May 2012, Facebook has over 901 million active users, more than half of them using Facebook on a mobile device.
Facebook was founded by Mark Zuckerberg with his college roommates and fellow students Eduardo Saverin, Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes. The website's membership was initially limited by the founders to Harvard students, but was expanded to other colleges in the Boston area, the Ivy League, and Stanford University. It gradually added support for students at various other universities before opening to high school students, and eventually to anyone aged 13 and over. However, according to a May 2011 Consumer Reports survey, there are 7.5 million children under 13 with accounts and 5 million under 10, violating the site's terms of service.

With its availability on many mobile devices, Facebook allows users to continuously stay in touch with friends, relatives and other acquaintances wherever they are in the world, as long as there is access to the Internet.

us to do? In March 2012 Facebook announced App Center, an online mobile store which sells applications that connect to Facebook. The store was available to iPhone, Android and mobile web users. In April, Facebook bought the application Instagram for US$1 billion. We all know what Facebook is. Most of the people we know use it to connect and to entertain themselves through games. What made it popular and successful is how it revolutionized social media, sharing of information and online entertainment. Facebook users range from civilians to politicians, actors and actresses, music bands and charity organizations, and just about anybody that can use a computer and has internet access.

Of course Facebook has its issues with user information being used in advertisements and tons of privacy and security issues, but let’s not dwell on the dark side and see why Facebook is hot. You know, ignorance is bliss. Facebook is like a big happy online tales, we are all drawing our pictures on this big stage. As a business technology, Facebook is successful.  Because facebook has its fan page and group page which is efficient and economical. Facebook, along with much of the Internet, is a great innovation that allows users to express their humanity and an opportunity to create new communities. As such it represents a forum in which one can make choices about their identity, at least insofar as one chooses to represent themselves publicly. That freedom does not suggest that one can do so with impunity, however. Because we live in a society in which expression is judged in legal, policy and even personal ways, it is important to remember the consequences of that expression no matter how ephemeral or fun in the moment it might seem to be. Some argue that Facebook is beneficial to one's social life because they can continuously stay in contact with their friends and relatives, while others say that it can cause increased antisocial tendencies because people are not directly communicating with each other. Some studies have named Facebook as a source of problems in relationships. Several news stories have suggested that using Facebook can lead to higher instances of divorce and infidelity, but the claims have been questioned by other commentators. The industry which has been positively impacted by its creation is known as the "app Economy" Over 182,000 - 235,644 jobs have been created and this is just the beginning These jobs just aren't made up of game apps, sharing apps, news reading apps or even apps to buy laundry detergent and other goods through Facebook, this app economy also include a businesses that supply app developers which by doing business with app makers have added themselves 129,00 to more than 182,00 people to help support the app economy. Facebook popularity. Active users of Facebook increased from just a million in 2004 to over 750 million in 2011. Registered Facebook users by age as of 2010. The Companies:
