Facebook is the most popular social media service in the world with more than 2 billion monthly active users as of June 2017.

Facebook was launched in February of 2004 for college students and then rapidly grew as it opened the service to more than those with a .edu email address.

In 2012 the social media giant offered its IPO and Facebook earned the title of the fastest company to grow to $250 billion market capitalization in the S&P 500.

Facebook’s founder, Mark Zuckerberg has shared that it’s not enough to connect the world, the social media service also needs to bring the world closer together. One of its recent efforts to do so is the “Good Adds Up” campaign.
