Facebook, Footbook

Everything began on the 4th of February 2004 when Mark Zuckerberg, along with 4 friends from Harvard College, created a new way of connecting people from all over the world by sharing ideas, pictures, videos and thoughts.

A simple idea called Facebook.

Facebook, a huge success from the beginning has quickly spread worldwide and is nowadays one of the biggest social networks in use.

Originally created and used by students to communicate with each other, Facebook is based on intuition and simplicity. It’s easy to use and is made in a catchy way. That’s why students enjoyed it so much at the beginning. The older generation started to become curious about it and joined in too, to remain in contact with their friends, find new ones and, why not, check on their children!

What’s going on? In an everyday busy existence more and more people relax by browsing through Facebook like a gossip magazine. But as time has passed technology has improved and so has the social network. Facebook inspired a new generation of social websites such as Twitter, Snapchat and Instagram which are more addictive, interactive and immediate for teenagers like me who are always in search of innovation and new perspectives.

Statistics show that Facebook is now dated for youngsters, and in a past obsessed by Facebook, our favourite is now called Instagram well it is for today.

Tomorrow we will see.
