What is Facebook? Sarah
Phillips reports on the development of Facebook, from a Harvard
social-networking website to a global internet phenomenon. “Facebook is a
social networking service that was launched in February 2004, founded by Mark
Zuckerberg along with his college roommates and fellow students”. The website’s
membership was initially limited by the founders, to Harvard students and Ivy
League schools, but was quickly expanded over the years all over the world. Currently, Facebook is the world’s largest
social network and has over 955 million
active users. Facebook’s mission is to give people the power to share and make
the world more open and connected. Millions of people use Facebook every day to
keep up with friends, upload an unlimited number of photos, share links and
videos, and learn more about the people they meet. From a personal perspective, Facebook is probably one of the
easiest ways to search and find anybody who you might know or want to get to know when it comes to many different types of
relationships.

Heba, Soffar said “Facebook is the most popular social
networking site of all time, it has helped a lot to cut down the physical boundaries,
and it has its many benefits for personal or for the business purposes”. In other words, firms can follow
Coke’s example as a high quality model to create strong brand recognition and
increase sales. Consequently, companies can make effective brand awareness for
their consumers by provide greater brand consciousness. Additionally, using
social media in business can provide high quality content. In recent years some
business has created content in social media site because customers want to read,
write, exchange, and see which theme the company is focusing on.

Some of the things that make Facebook’s service different from the
traditional media such as newspapers, television, and film are that it’s
comparatively inexpensive and accessible to allow anyone to publish or access
information. Traditional media is considered to be the original sources of
information in a one-way conversation towards its readers or viewers, a controlled
communication. While social media the power has shifted to the people and it’s
now a two-way conversation between one person to another, an unregulated communication.
Interaction between people is the main advantage of social media. Facebook
allows users to continuously stay in touch with friends, relatives and other
acquaintances wherever they are in the world.

Facebook is the largest social network of the world. This has advantages
and disadvantages. Vinayak SP commented:

Advantages
& Disadvantages of Facebook — In the marketing point of view, the
Facebook is valuable to create a brand not only for individuals but also
businesses at the global level. The Facebook benefits include as
a social networking pros provides benefits for business and
individuals too, such as making a group, chatting with clients, making an
event, wall stickers, reliable platforms, news feed, etc. you can meet new
people & have knowledge about various places, traditions & culture. No
doubt, the Facebook is proved as a great option to connect with the
world these days. Most of the people use FB in day-to-day life; even many
people spend hours-&-hours on the Facebook

 Hundred millions of people use it every day. We get messages,
notifications from our friends or the popular people we just liked or from the
group we had joined before. The information can move faster between you and the
world.

If you want to register a page like Facebook you have to give out your
personal data. This is what makes it dangerous, because anyone can steal it,
causing mental scars on you with it. If someone cannot take this responsibility
he can give out informations from himself what he would not like to and this
can cause the problems. There are some people who mean to find the freedom
through this dimension what he thinks that the life has stolen from him. For
instance: friendship, real emotion full relationships. These people do not give
a thought to it that this may remove him from the reality.

Beside these disadvantages, Facebook has lots of advantages. We can keep
in contact with our relatives or friends who live far away, we can know what
happens in our surroundings, we can chat with our friends. What is more we can
make secret groups where we can invite who we want, and then we can chat privately
and the groups has own message wall. We are able to post everything from
everywhere. We can post to our friends message wall and anybody can see it. The
largest advantage of this social network is that millions of people are
registered from all over the world so you can find all of your friends, and the
other one is that you can get feedback by “like” and “dislike”
buttons.

All in all if you use smart the Facebook and other Social Networks it is
really useful, but if you do not, it can cause huge problem. According to me
Facebook is the best social networking site ever I have seen.
