Facebook is the most popular online social network. Originally developed to connect college students, Facebook is used by different people from around the world amounting to its 1.39 billion users. The website gained popularity by providing an easy means of communication between people. Instead of having to send several messages to different people about how you are doing, you can post one update on Facebook to alert everyone. It also allows you to share pictures and other media with multiple people instantaneously, creating simpler and faster communication. More and more people join the network daily and the fastest growing demographic of users are in the age group of 55 and over, proving that Facebook is no longer a network limited to teenagers and young adults. People of all age groups and backgrounds recognize the value in the services it provides which is why Facebook has become a social buzzword because of its prominence in modern culture and interaction.
