Bangalore: During a super bowl match interval, a Harvard school kid introduced one of his friends to Facebook. It was an exponential rise from there on and the social networking site has added 50 million users in the first year. Today, Facebook (FB) is the most favorite social media app downloaded on Smartphones. It accounts for 66 percent of all social media sharing on iPhones, as reported by Albert Costill of Search Engine Journal.



Facebook has been in the news for wrong reasons like $200 million that spammers gain from it annually. However, we bring you stuff like the gender break-up of Facebook users, the most common life event showcased and the person behind ‘Like’ button.



Here is a list of 25 interesting facts about Facebook:



1. Facebook had a major homepage remodeling in 2007, which replaced a person’s partly obscured face behind a cloud of binary code. The mystery man was none other than the legendary actor Al Pacino. This fact came to light when David Kirkpatrick, who in his book ‘The Facebook Effect,’ revealed that the effect was created by a friend and classmate of Mark Zuckerberg.

2: Excellent article on Facebook. Yes. Facebook is the most popular social media for all. Unlike Twitter,size of messages does not matter in Facebook. Perhaps I am one of the prolific users of Facebook in the world. One can get much knowledge from Facebook provided one uses it for the right purpose and to spread one's message across the world. Sharing with top journals and newsletters will help to keep pace with latest developments on variety of subjects.
