About Facebook (adapted from Facebook prospectus): Facebook
is a social media giant. Users create free accounts on Facebook
, and connect their accounts to other accounts to create a network of "friends" that they can communicate with and share news and photos with. A user can also create a "group" page to promote their own business or organization.
People use Facebook
to stay connected with their friends and family, to discover what is going on in the world around them, and to share and express what matters to them to the people they care about.
Developers can use the Facebook
Platform to build applications (apps) and websites that integrate with Facebook
to reach Facebook
's global network of users and to build products that are more personalized, social, and engaging.
Advertisers can engage with more than 800 million monthly active users (MAUs) on Facebook
or subsets of users based on information they have chosen to share such as their age, location, gender, or interests. This description is adapted from Facebook prospectus.
