Launched on February 4th, 2004 by Harvard Alumni Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook became one of the most popular social communication websites of all times. With over 64 million active users in the world, one begins to wonder what makes Facebook so great.
Facebook was launched by Mark Zuckerberg, a Harvard student who began computer programming when he was only in the sixth grade. This social communication website was launched in 2004 and was at first exclusive to Harvard students but soon became available for everyone around the world. According to Alexa, between September 2006 and September 2007 Facebookâ€™s ranking among all websites, in terms of how many people visited it, increased from 60th to 7th.
So lets cut to the chase- what makes Facebook so great? Could it be that it makes keeping in touch with loved ones so easy, or perhaps could it be that uploading photos and videos for all of your friends to see is made easy? In fact, it is both of these reasons as well as many more. With Facebook you can comment on peoples pages, send private messages, free gifts, draw on their page and do even more, simply put Facebook makes social interaction and mingling a piece of cake. On Facebook you can also get to know new people that are in your university or high school and gain even more friends. According to statistics 14 million photos are uploaded each day on Facebook. This website for social interaction also allows you to upload photos, and videos easily for all of your friends to view.
Overall, when Zuckerberg created Facebook little did he know that it would grow into a multi billion dollar nation and would become perhaps one of the most widely used and easiest ways to interact with people of all ages. This is what makes Facebook so great.
