Public/Private: Facebook is a private company

Launch Date: February 2004

In the company’s own words, what is it?

Facebook is a social utility that helps people better understand the world around them. Facebook develops technologies that facilitate the spread of information through social networks, allowing people to share information online the same way they do in the real world. Anyone with a valid email address from a supported organization, company, college or high school can register for Facebook. They can then create profiles to connect with friends, share interests, join groups, send messages, write notes and post photos. Facebook launched in February 2004, and the website now has over 9 million registered users across more than 40,000 regional, work, college and high school networks. According to comScore, Facebook is the seventh-most trafficked site on the web and is the number one photo-sharing site.

Outside quote about company:

Quote posted on News.com: “If corporate Facebook takes off like in colleges,” Minority Rapport blogger Doug Sherrets wrote Thursday, “Facebook could connect and ‘own’ the job market. In that case, not only does LinkedIn become completely irrelevant, but HotJobs, Monster and the like will face a two-front war: Craigslist on one side; ‘Mark’s list’/Facebook Jobs on the other.”

Quote on The Ball State Daily News Online (authored by Brittany Mazzola): “Although updates went up on Facebook Tuesday morning, the Web site was down for Ball State University students. The changes turned Facebook from a directory into a streaming news service. Ball State students were unable to access the Web site from campus for the majority of the school day due to problems with equipment service that temporarily and unintentionally blocked the Web site.”

Features:

– Look up people around you.
– See how people know each other.
– Make groups and events with your friends.

By early the next morning Facebook was receiving a large amount of negative feedback about a couple newly added features, which we shared with our readers and can be viewed by clicking here.

    This is rediculous. Nothing works. The combination Internet explorer and facebook is deadly. Internet closes on me all the time. When that does not happen, facebook is not able to launch the games that has on its page. Games are fun until you cannot do anything. Either fix it or cancel it. This is tupid. I am giving one more wekk and then I am canceling facebook game an all.

    Dear Mr.Mark Zuckerberg,

    The last few weeks I’ve been doing an internship on a lawyer’s office in Lisbon, Portugal. We have a client which has a problem regarding Facebook. Is there anyway I could possibly reach the Facebook headquarters for further solving of this matter? If so, I’d like you to report back to me by the end of this week please.

    KindRegards,

    Isabela Volpintesta.
