    True. Nowadays, the means of communications especially between family and friends is facebook. Before it was Yahoo Messenger.

    I think the point where Facebook scored above the other similar social networking websites were the various gaming applications, which got every body hooked.

    I believe Facebook's success lies in its business plan and management. Facebook's business plan has allowed it to grow and expand with the wants and needs of the online community. Facebook stayed ahead of the curve, unlike MySpace, which seemed unchanging.

    Yes absolutely change is the name of the game for any business in order to have that crucial edge above your competitors. Facebook did this very well and are now expanding their wings to take a large pie out of google's search engine market.

    Facebook has many applications which are really useful to direct contact to others and increase relationship to others. Facebook helps to increase sales or leads conversion.

    facebook is more user friendly social networking site because we can chat with our friends and sharing important videos and photos. and it is a most popular way to increase our business.it is the only website which became most popular with sort time spam.

    Well I guess Facebook's success has to do with user's great experience while using it. The games, the real time updates, chatting and all made Facebook one of the biggest social networking sites today. People likes a website that has all the package all wrapped up in one.

    I remember a lot of annoying glittery graphics on myspace; I think they allowed too much customization of each personal page, which led to some obnoxious things. I dumped myspace shortly after finding facebook.

    I think it is mainly because people enjoy sharing photos of themselves doing things on the "Wall" feature, which provides a truer sense of "social networking," whereas MySpace was based more on a separate-pages-for-individuals design.

    Facebook is in constant change and this keeps it user friendly and interesting. Myspace had way too many in-your-face ads, and everyone had funky backgrounds that made their personal page feel cheap like web 0.5

    FB sets the trend! You're either a trendsetter or a follower. FB is very user friendly, simple, tons of features.... the company / owner has a great vision, great brand name, amazing marketing strategies, a proven business plan and great sales performance. When it comes to social media, FB for almost everybody means excellence.

    It's name is very simple. Very easy to recognize and say. My nephew, 12 year old, has said to me in one day " Is that "FACE" ? " " Is that "FACE" ? " when he saw me sit front of PC.

    Facebook is the most popular website in today’s Web2.0. It completely changed the way people use applications for social networking websites.

    Facebook is popular because the applications there was enough to gather everyone together. Now everyone is on Facebook so it makes it difficult for people who are already members to leave. I want to delete my FB account but it's a difficult decision because my relatives abroad have found me there and I don't have their contact information. So I can only talk to them via FB.
