Facebook is a social media company which is one of the largest in the world. It began life as a social network for college students in the US. It is free to make a Facebook account, you just need an email address and some time to create a profile. You can also create pages related to your interests or join groups to share information with like-minded individuals. You can also use Facebook to organise events – invite friends and keep track of who is attending, as well as provide links for ticket sales. Businesses can set up a page to connect with customers. If you ever need support relating to Facebook, there is a full online help forum.
In London, Facebook has large offices in Fitzrovia. The offices are famous for being unique, with hammock working spaces and a climbing wall. The UK is Facebook’s largest market outside of the US, so many employees are based here to assist in the day to day operations of Facebook in the UK, as well as the overall marketing and business strategy.
Your Facebook profile is what is used to identify you on the site. You create your profile when you first sign up to Facebook. You will be asked for basic information such as your name, the town/city you live in, where you work and a photo of yourself. You will be given the option to import friends from your email contacts, or you can just use the search function to send a friend request to people that you know. Once you have created your profile, you will be able to share status updates, post photos and videos, message your friends and just enjoy the Facebook experience by liking pages and joining groups.
Facebook is easily accessible from a mobile thanks to the fully functional mobile site. Facebook does prefer that you use the app on your mobile, so the mobile website is restricted to certain functions. The domain name for the Facebook mobile site is m.facebook.com.
The Facebook App is an easy way to access your Facebook account from your mobile. The app is available to download from the Google Play store for Android phones and the Apple App Store for iPhone. You will be able to share updates, videos and photos as well as see what your friends are up to. You’ll get notifications when your friends interact with your posts and you can watch live videos. The app is regularly updated to ensure that it is running at top functionality.
Facebook is a great place to play online games. There are hundreds of games in many different categories such as puzzle, simulation, sports, trivia, word, role-playing, running, adventure, casual, cards and casino. You will be able to play many popular games through Facebook such as Candy Crush Saga, Diner Dash, Kim Kardashian: Hollywood, Scrabble, Bubble Pop Saga, 8 Ball Pool, Farmville, Bingo and Tetris. Most of the games are free to play although some will be ‘freemium’ where you will need to pay to unlock certain levels or special items. You can access Facebook games from the desktop or from the Facebook app.
Facebook Messenger is a separate app which Facebook users can use to chat with their friends from their mobile. You can also use Messenger as a texting app and you won’t have to pay for texts, as it works with your allocated data allowance from your phone provider. You can also video call your friends and family using Messenger, make HD calls, record voice messages, chat as a group and see when people have received your messages.
Facebook Emoticons are Facebook’s own version of emojis. The emoticons use a code which makes them unique to Facebook. The emoticons are relatively similar to the classic iPhone emojis with smiley faces, hearts and hand gestures. You can use Facebook Emoticons from the desktop – the app uses the standard iPhone/Android emojis in their place. You can also use the emoticons as a reaction to someone’s post, with a like, love, angry and sad emoticon to show how you feel.
How to deactivate Facebook
To deactivate your Facebook account, simply click your account at the top right-hand side of the Facebook homepage. Choose settings, followed by security, then deactivate your account and follow the steps from there. You can reactivate your Facebook account at any time by logging in with your email and password. Whilst your account is deactivated your account won’t be visible and will not show up in the search bar.
Facebook Business Page
It’s completely free to set up a Facebook page for your business. You can do it from a computer or from your mobile. You will need a business name, a profile photo, a cover photo and a call to action. Once you have filled out the relevant information for your page, you can publish it and begin posting. You can turn on messaging so that customers can contact you via your business page.
You can use Facebook Advertising to easily reach your target audience. There are adverts to suit any budget and business, whether you are just starting out or you are a large company wishing to advertise a new service. Facebook aims to make its adverts very eye-catching and you can use report tools to see how your target audience have responded to the advertisements. You can even choose to have your advert shown on Instagram to reach a larger audience.
Mark Zuckerberg wrote a programme called ‘FaceMash’ in 2003, using photos from the Harvard University servers to compare people to one another, in a similar way to ‘Hot or Not’. It was this same programme that would later inspire ‘TheFacebook’ in 2004. Membership was initially limited to Harvard students before it was rolled out to other Ivy League institutions. Since 2006, anyone over the age of 13 is able to become a member of Facebook.
Facebook is the most popular social media site in the world with 1.79 billion monthly active users.
