Facebook In The Real World

The Facebook website has been one of the biggest success stories of the Internet age. The rise of the social networking has been quite rapid, moving from an inception date of 2004 and amassing over 600 million members in only seven years. The website allows its users to create a profile and link that profile with those of their friends. This network of friends is able to share their thoughts on nearly anything and it can be read in real time by anyone that has been accepted into the network. Although there are a number of other social networks, none has achieved the level of users of Facebook.
