www.facebook.com

When you click on the site www.facebook.com, you do not just click on the site; you click on an experience.. an experience which takes the form of an addiction in so many cases.

Back in 2004, when the term social networking was not even coined or even thought of, there began a saga in the Harvard corridors in the net space of all Harward students. The precursor to www.facebook.com was already in making.



History of Facebook

Mark Zuckerberg from the University developed a website where he used pictures of Harvard students and asked others to play the game of "hot or not" with different pairs of pictures. Now Zuckerberg had stolen those pictures from the Harvard server having the student database. The result was that he was expelled temporarily.

Once he joined back, he continued to follow his passion to create and evolve the software and make it much more user friendly. Thus evolved "the facebook". However, in 2005, the site we have known for years together came to existence; viz. www.facebook.com.

The rest, as they say, is history! Initially, access to www.facebook.com was limited to Harward students but soon the high school students and the students at the university at Stanford, Yale, Columbia, MIT, Boston, etc could login or get access to www.facebook.com! Eventually, all universities in Canada and the US, had students accessing this initial version of Facebook. In September 2006, the access to www.facebook.com was made public and anyone of the age of 13 years or more with a valid email address could become its member!

Today Private core, Oculus VR, What's App and Instagram are subsidiaries of Facebook and needless to say these are very famous in their own right. The company is registered on NASDAQ with an IPO (Initial Public Offering) that was made in 2012.
