The year 2004 marks the creation of the social networking service known as Facebook. It’s creaters are Mark Zukerberg, Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moscovitz and Chris Hughes. Facebook was initially a platform for Harvard students to communicate with each other, later it opened up to other colleges in Boston, and then to high schools, and eventually to anyone over the age of 13.
In the May of 2012 Facebook went public on The NASDAQ, and currently has over a billion users worldwide. Last year Facebook generated 5.1 Billion dollars in revenue and achieved position 462 in the list of Fortune 500 companies
Facebook users are required to create a personal profile and add other users as “friends”, to exchange messages with them. Users also get notified when their friends update their profile, add a new picture etc.
To use Facebook for business, you need a Facebook page. A Facebook page (also known as a Fan Page) is used by businesses, non-profits, celebrities, and any other public figure. With a Page you get “fans” not “friends”! To effectively use Facebook for business, you should join other groups and individuals with common interests. It is possible to use Facebook as a marketing platform, and make huge sums of money. Once you establish a niche, connect with people with the same interest, and provide value to them, you can eventually present them with your business ideas and sell stuff, or recruit them into your MLM company.
It is an absolute neccesity to read and obey all the guidelines and rules associated with Facebook, or face being penalized by the system. For example you can’t email everyone, all the time, if you do you will be unable to email anyone for some time. If you send too many friend requests or spam other groups also you can get in trouble with Facebook. They have very harsh advertising rules as well, but you don’t need to advertise if you just spend some time interacting with the right people, and approach them properly.
