We all have heard of Facebook and there has been a time in the life of every one of us when Facebook was the most important social media platform for us. It was one of the things which used to entertain us a lot back in the days.
It all changed and most of us don’t use Facebook so frequently now. We don’t use it very often so we think that it is shrinking. But Facebook has been getting bigger and bigger every passing year.
Here are some interesting facts by which you will understand how gigantic Facebook has become:
- Facebook is the biggest social media network worldwide
More than two billion people use Facebook every month. This means that around 37% of the world’s population uses Facebook every month. That’s a very big number and this makes Facebook the biggest social media platform.
- Facebook owns some very big tech companies
Most of us don’t know it but Facebook owns some of the big social media companies such as Instagram and Whatsapp. This can be another reason why Facebook has so many monthly users. Facebook also owns Oculus, which is one of the top VR headset companies in the market. It’s also interesting to know that Facebook has a 9.99% stake in Jio.
- Facebook has a big online marketplace
We all know Facebook as a place where we connect with our family and friends. But there is a lot more to it. Facebook has a big online marketplace where people can sell and buy things.
- Facebook has changed its name to Meta
Facebook changed its name to Meta in October 2021. This name change has a lot of significance in itself which isn’t very obvious at first glance. By changing its name to Meta, Facebook wants to dive deep into the world of the metaverse. Metaverse is a new technology that some believe will change the way we use the internet, and Facebook wants to dominate it.
