Most of us have seen the movie Facebook. First launched in February of 2004 by college student Mark Zuckerberg and his college roommates, the site introduced a more exciting alternative to MySpace. It presently has over one million users and half of those users access the Facebook mobile features.
I first started using Facebook my Freshman year in college of 2005. It was a great way to connect to school events and previous high school classmates, but I didn’t catch on to the Facebook movement until years later.
Facebook is a definite competitor because it’s users are loyal and familiar with the network. Nearly everyone has a page even if they don’t frequent the site as often as most. Even my grandmother has a page! The profiles aren’t exclusive only to personal users but expand to entertainers, businesses and brands.
