Social media networks are more popular than ever, especially in the fake of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has led to severe social distancing rules with the aim to prevent the spread of the disease.
There are several social media apps on the market, but Facebook has remained the undisputed king, and it is unlikely that any pretender will manage to topple the giant in the following years, despite the best efforts made by some companies.
Started as an exclusive platform

In 2006 the company decided to remove membership restrictions, and any person over the age of thirteen can create a free account as long as they have a valid email password. Facebook anticipated that smartphones will be popular and decided to release standalone apps that offer an improved user experience on mobile devices, a key factor that consolidated the reputation of the platform
A great app experience
The Facebook app offers many of the features that can be found on the web equivalent. Users can find and add friends and families to their list of friends. It is also easy to share status updates and let friends know what you are doing at the moment.

When other users interact with your posts by leaving reactions or comments, the app will push notifications on your device. You also have the option to interact with content shared by you by leaving comments, reactions, GIFs, and much more.
