Facebook is a social media platform with over 1 billion users. A user registers and then has the ability to connect with friends, work colleagues or make new friends, online.
People with profiles list information about themselves. Whether it be where they work at, where they are studying, ages, or other personal details, many users post lots of information which is easily accessible to their friends and others.
The platform allows users to share pictures, music, videos and articles, as well as their own thoughts and opinions with other people on the site.
“Facebookers” can post almost anything to their “timeline”, a review of what is happening in their life at any given time, and also has the ability to enter private chat with other “friends” who are also online.
On top of this, users can “like” other pages which interest them. For example, a fan of Marvel movies can follow the movie studio by linking up with its Facebook page. There, the user can post comments and receive movie updates, pictures etc.
