One of the most popular social media networks is Facebook. Despite having many competitors, including Twitter, Snapchat, and Instagram, it has maintained a stronghold on both young and older people in the social media market for the past 12 years. Today, millions of individuals have access to the Internet, and many of them have Facebook profiles.
The number of likes and followers of a particular page can give a rough hint of how many people are interested in that page or for a specific content posted on it.
As well as being able to exchange private messages, Facebook also allows users to post content in the public domain. If people wish to be part of any argument or social topic, they can create groups. In addition, any user can establish their fan page and receive one follower for each like. Because of this, users who have an account can share their own private life or items, brand names, and enterprises for their fans.
