Facebook – interesting facts
The social network Facebook has bypassed its competitors in all respects, and not only bypasses it, but also amazes them with its new products. Today, Facebook has more than 570 million users, and it seems that this is completely beyond the capabilities of this social network. Mark Zuckerberg, the owner of this social network, has already become the youngest billionaire. Everyone knows about this social network, and even made a film that was nominated for an Oscar. And we’ll talk, we’ll talk about interesting Facebook facts.
No. 1. Initially, the main face of the social network was the face of no one there but Al Pacino himself.
Before the design change of the main pages of this social network, back in 2007 there was a picture of a person whose face was difficult to distinguish because several tables were superimposed on him. And then they nicknamed this man, Mr. Facebook. But more recently, the world did find out who he was. So Mark said that this person belonged to the famous actor of Italian descent, Al Pacino. This photo of the actor was taken by a friend of Mark, then he himself did not know who it was, he just liked the photo and he decided to post it on the main page of the future project.
No. 2. The first task of Facebook was to provide access to various data from user to user.
Such information is not available on the official Facebook website, but it is true.
The first task was to give access to the exchange of files with information from user to user. The service itself was launched back in 2004. And then it was necessary to receive an invitation from a person who already had access. However, by 2006, this idea ceased to be the main one, and then the site’s policy was revised and it was decided to create a social network.
No. 3. Incredibly, the first companies to register with Facebook were Microsoft and Apple.
Of course, everyone is aware that initially the network was created and worked only for Harvard students. And only then other educational institutions were connected to the network. But only after two years, companies were able to register. The first were Microsoft and Apple, and of course it attracted other giants as well, followed by Intel, Amazon and EA. And since September 2006, absolutely any user from anywhere in the world could become a member of this network. So after about a year, the social network totaled about 5 million users.
No. 4. Each Facebook user has an average of 140 friends.
How many friends do you personally have? So the average Facebook user has about 140 people. This social network has a lot of interesting figures, for example, 780 billion minutes are spent every month on the net in the total mass per month, 74% of active users visit the site every day, more than 50 billion units of content are stored on Facebook, each user is an average participant 80 different interest groups.
No. 5. Facebook employees eat for free.
Three times a day, all Facebook employees receive free meals. There is a cafe in the huge office of the company. So you don’t even have to get up from your computer, they place an order right behind the workplace and get it right there. Moreover, orders can be made only three times a day, no more. All the same, the owners of Facebookbook are afraid that their employees will recover and will not crawl out of the table at all.
No. 6. Facebookbook products go under the hammer.
All products and things related to Facebook started to be in great demand among collectors, but what will happen next? Recently, a Facebook employee sold his old work clothes for $ 4,090. 54 people fought for her. And of course the goods that were dressed or were in the everyday life of Mark Zuberg defy any price limits.
