Facebook is the world’s largest social networking platform with 600 million registered users and is still growing rapidly. It was launched in the February of 2004 by Mark Zuckerberg. It was actually created to meet the needs of the students in Harvard and slowly caught the imagination of college students across the country. Then the message spread to people in all walks of life and they started creating accounts with Facebook.

Anyone above the age of 13 can actually register an account with Facebook. Users can start creating profiles with photos, mention their personal interests, and add other information. They can communicate with their friends through a private messaging facility or by using public message boards. In the case of public messaging other users will be able to see the messages. There is also a chat application to send real-time messages.

With respect to security aspects, every user has the ability to set their own security settings. They can create a group and share information with that group alone. Any outsider, not part of the created group, cannot view any information about the group members.

Another highly popular feature of the Facebook is their photos section. User can upload any number of photos and albums to their Facebook account. Some photo uploading sites such as Flickr and Photobucket place a limit on the number of photos that can be uploaded onto their sites.

One of the most recent developments in the Facebook world is the introduction of voice chat. People can chat with their friends over the chat application available from Facebook. Facebook was able to introduce this feature with help of T-mobile. Additionally smart phones such as iPhone users and Android mobile users can now access Facebook from their smart phones. Thus anyone using a iPhone can send messages to their Facebook account without logging in to their computer
