Since Facebook’s introduction in 2004, it has shaped the way people share and connect online. Facebook allows users to stay in touch with people who they would have long lost connection with. High school friends and college friends are able to stay connected long after graduations. Before Facebook allowed people to do this, staying in contact was much more difficult. Facebook allows people to document stages of your life and share with friends using photo albums and sharing life events.
Facebook also is a successful platform for business to spread their events and ideas. With the ability to share articles from news, business and other websites, Facebook has a variety of different content throughout. The social network allows users to connect and meet people, near of far, they may have never gotten the chance to. In addition, Facebook is the most diverse because it reaches almost all ages, nationalities and countries.
