Pages on Facebook that are the most liked
In the last 9 years the Internet advanced in leaps and bounds with the invention of Facebook in 2004. Finding long-lost family and friends, old school classmates and work colleagues along with meeting new contacts to add to personal ever increasing networks has become a recent obsession. Facebook introduced us to a way of staying in constant contact with friends whilst announcing daily plans, feelings and thoughts and generally keeping in touch. This has now expanded into advertising for new and established businesses alike, publishing ‘posts’ and articles in order to gain much sought after ‘likes’ and ‘shares’ to allow with the enticing prospect of higher viewing on the Internet which inevitably will generate more sales. Many changes to Facebook have been made over the years in format, rules and regulations. Some of the rules are indeed very necessary for protection of the younger users, in a form of censorship to prevent unwanted material from being seen. Mark Zuckerberg is to be congratulated on producing a much sought after service whose popularity has now grown to over 1 billion users worldwide and it is now difficult to imagine what life was like before the platform exploded into the world.
