Why did Facebook become the largest social network today?
Facebook is the largest social network today because it allows users to create an account simply and fast, introduce suitable friends, easy-to-see interface, easy to use and good security. By the end of 2018, there are about 2.234 billion users, youtube and whatsapp ranked 2nd place with 1.5 billion users and Messenger ranked 3rd place with 1.3 billion users. In which, Whatsapp and Messenger are two applications owned by Facebook.
Facebook's goal is to choose the most relevant and compelling stories to be shown in the News Feed. They want to choose the best content in the thousands of potential stories that can be shown in your News Feed every day and put those content in the first few dozen places you'll actually browse. Facebook prioritizes stories you'll like, comment on, share, click and spend time reading, which we will refer to as Commitment.
Timeline, sometimes called as the "wall" in Facebook documents, is your history on Facebook. If you update Facebook regularly but can't remember the specific date of an event, you can easily look through your own Timeline to see the post you wrote about it, which will show the date.
