Facebook may have faced some backlash recently. Still, the giant company continues to operate to the most popular social media platform in the world, with more than two billion active accounts.
The iconic social media network started as a small platform that allowed attendants of Harvard University to interact with their peers and make new friends. It became quite popular in a short while, and many other students wanted to join the platform. The developers decided to allow students from other Ivy League universities and colleges to participate.
In 2006 Facebook decided to obliterate membership restrictions. Any person with an age of 13 years or older who has a valid email account can join the platform for free. Users are advised to use their real names to minimize confusion. A dedicated app is available for smartphones and offers a wealth of features that are quite interesting.
