Facebook's Ultimate Vision

Facebook just hit its seven year milestone. That's seven years since the creation of the social network that changed everything. No exaggeration – it really did change the world of the internet. It’s true to say that for example MySpace was around a good while before Facebook; but look at where Facebook has left these once thriving social networks. I am not saying that it’s impossible for other social networks to be successful; Twitter (my favourite social network!) for instance, is surviving just fine alongside Facebook.

The App Trend

"The App Trend" as I refer to it, is nothing new. It's not talked about in the news, it's not mentioned on my Twitter feed. So when it came to writing this week's article, I had a choice. Either I could write about the fact that Facebook now lets you log in via HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure), or I could find a topic not so commonly discussed, delve deeper into the concept, and bring forward some of my own ideas.
