Facebook is either the child you never had or the bane of your existence. Currently, it”s the largest social network in the game. It isn”t lonely at the top, though, when you have so many friends. The point has tipped, the sticking factor is present, and Mark Zuckerberg is the .
Since Facebook”s immaculate inception in 2004, the site has garnered the largest active user base amongst all social media platforms. Currently, Facebook is not just another social networking site, it”s a viable contender, alongside Apple, for Google”s tech throne in the years to come. Facebook has transcended social and moved towards being a publishing platform. Some businesses don”t even bother purchasing web space anymore on GoDaddy, they”re set by just building-out a Facebook Page.
Facebook”s latest innovation, the Timeline, was introduced late in 2011 and will be completely rolled out by the end of March for all users. Recently, brands have already taken advantage of the new features, with Nike, Coca-Cola, Burberry and more among the first to equip themselves with the new features. The new profile format highlights the history of each user and brings back all of the dialogue that has occurred on your page since its inception. Forewarning: if you utilized Facebook during your collegiate years, you may want to skim through your history and do a little editing of your more “expressive” status updates and comments. The new cover image, prominently featured at the top of the page, allows for further customization which has resulted in genius examples of creativity. Individual images can be pinned to highlight the photos by making them widescreen and social apps have been integrated into the platform as well. For all of the intricate details on what you can edit on the new Timeline, check out this guide.
Zuckerberg and his kingdom haven”t always been the superpower that they currently are. They came from very humble beginnings in 2004, when only a few schools were participating and you could only communicate with individuals housed within your specific network. Lets take a quick stroll down memory lane to see how Facebook”s image has changed over the years. With tons of digital make-up and plastic surgery, it has reinvented itself time and again to become the mainstay of millions online.
