Posted on Jul 2017 by 6B Admin | Go Back

Facebook, it's hard to imagine life without it. Life is so much easier with an online directory to find out about your friends, family and significant figures of the world and also keep on top of everything thats going on around you... But a mere 13 Years ago, Technology was different and no such thing existed, until a man named Mark Zuckerberg had an idea in late 2003 that would change the way people interact and socialise forever, which he called 'The Facebook'.

The social media giant has recently announced that it has hit the amazing number of 2 BILLION monthly users, that's just under a third of the world's population. However, true to form, Facebook's creator Mark Zuckerberg is not content to rest on his laurels. He is currently travelling widely in an attempt to find out what users would like to see from Facebook in the future. He has come to the realisation that with such extensive influence comes a huge responsibility. As he recently stated,


"We're making progress connecting the world, and now, let's bring the world closer together."


It seems apparent that Zuckerberg intends to turn Facebook into a powerful force for good. During the last 5 years Facebook has seen a rapid expansion in its user base predominantly in the developing world. This expansion has been made possible by Facebook making its app accessible to cheaper android phones utilising low-bandwidth connections. 

As Facebook's Chief Product Officer recently stated,


" We're getting to a size where it's worth really taking a careful look at what are all the things we can do to make social media the most positive force for good possible."


Facebook has experienced problems which have generated negative publicity, with people using it to display distressing content and fake news which they felt may polarise society by reinforcing certain opinions have all caused the public to worry about the power being weilded by social media platforms. However Facebook seems determined to address these and other issues. It's bold new mission statement signals its determination to change for the better,


"Give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together."
