Freetimers Web Marketing - Facebook’s 10th Birthday
Facebook is celebrating its tenth Birthday today, which is a considerable amount of time for the ever-popular social media network.
Mark Zuckerberg created Facebook in February 2004, with the help of three Harvard University classmates; Andrew McCollum, Chris Hughes and Dustin Moskovitz. Back then Facebook was merely seen as a way of communicating for Harvard University students, yet today it’s recognised as a global, multi-billion dollar social media network boasting around 750 million daily users. Facebook has not only proved to be popular in terms of communicating with family and friends; it has become a popular social media channel for many businesses. Companies can not only share their content and post statuses to connect with their audience, they can also use Facebook Ads to display targeted pay per click advertisements, taking location, gender, age, likes, interests, relationship status, workplace and education into account.
Facebook also took the necessary steps to make their network accessible on a range of devices with applications built for smartphones and tablets to keep people connected whilst they’re on the go.
