facebook's 12th Anniversary

Index Content

It was in February 2004 when Mark Zuckerberg originally created Facebook as a social network solely for students at Harvard University to communicate with each other. What Zuckerberg, like fellow founders Eduardo Saverin, Chris Hughes and Dustin Moskovitz didn't know was that their creation would become the famous social network we know today.

Facebook has evolved by leaps and bounds since then, so much so that it is practically unthinkable for any company or individual who wants to make themselves known not to have a page or profile on this website.

Despite having been created twelve years ago, the social network continues to maintain its position on the podium today in the face of new platforms that are coming on strong like Instagram.

This is due to the fact that Facebook has always managed to keep up to date and refresh its image in order to meet the demands of demanding internet users. It has managed to give priority to photographs and videos rather than textual content, and is also considered the best social network for interacting with friends and colleagues through comments, reactions and animated GIFs.

Facebook Live is the latest step taken by the network to stay ahead of other video-based platforms such as YouTube. Thanks to this new update, we can now enjoy live videos in real time and broadcast them publicly or restricted to our contacts only.

Thanks to Facebook Live, Occam has had the opportunity to work with KING, developers of well-known video games such as Candy Crush, Farm Heroes or Bubble Witch Saga.

In addition, Facebook has now also added to its repertoire the (already well known) "instant stories", originating from the Snapchat platform so that you can also share videos in an improvised and spontaneous way with all your contacts.
