It explains how fast and rapidly technology has developed through new innovations and ideas. Our web is going to continuously prosper and come up with new ideas to make the web better than it already is. There are a lot of regulation rules however the market for some of these media sources are off the charts. Women and young girls are also an increase in this rapid technology especially by blogging.

Web Mark Zuckerberg created Facebook in 2004, which evolved from myspace. Mark had created Facebook to connect his Harvard college campus. Facebook back in 2006 was a place for teenagers to connect and share statuses for example “like for like” or “like for a compliment.” It was the start of social media in our generation. It was originally for teenagers and the occasional parents, but today the roles have changed. More parents and elders use Facebook then teenagers. However, it is more than just a networking where you can post your latest news or share pictures. Facebook has become a place of advertisement, one can find out the latest trends, the newest or most exciting news. Facebook always you to connect with people all over the world, also keeps you up to date on your friend’s birthday, it even will send you notifications on your phone to remind you. Something that is new that Facebook came up with is going Live, which is a spin-off of snap chat or posting a video. But instead of posting a video that you already made, you videotape yourself at the moment. It shows your actions as you are doing it and what you are doing it through your phone.

 

Away from that Facebook replaces telephones is that you are able to talk to people more quickly, you are able to create messages and share photos on your timeline so that friends and family members are connected and kept up to date with your life. Facebook also replaced writing letters because in the past you would write a message to update your family and friends, or maybe send a postcard whenever you went somewhere interesting or cool. But nowadays you can just create a post about your trip, and within seconds your friends and family see what you made that trip and how you liked it. Facebook also replaces photo books and scrapbooks, instead of printing out millions of pictures and making a collage one can create an album on Facebook and put all those pictures there, it is an easy way to have your photos saved forever.

In 2007 Facebook wrote on there a blog that Facebook would now be able to be accessed on your mobile phone. You would be able to send SMS messages, poke people, write on peoples walls, and post things on your timeline. Basically, you can use all aspects of Facebook that you get on the computer on your mobile device. In 2010 Facebook released the original web-centric mobile app. While other companies were releasing native versions of app suited to Apple and Android phones. This was a gamble on Facebook’s part, but eventually, the operating system currently vying for power would be overturned by straight web-based experience. Facebook made software so that you would be able to access their website on any device, phone, iPad, Android, and flip phones. They wanted to make sure that everyone had a chance access their web page.

Something that facebooks added to make money is having an advertisement on the side of your time line. They have software so that they can see what you are searching on the internet, and they put that product on the side of your screen. Also on the side of your screen, they have phrases that are trending.
