Facebook helps people better understand the world around them by developing technologies that facilitate the spread of information through social networks.

In 2009, the site became the world’s most popular social networking platform. Facebook has over 700 million registered users in over 40,000 geographic, work-related, collegiate, and high school networks, and, according to ComScore’s Media-Metrix report, ranks as the second-most trafficked site in the United States with over 67.5 billion page views in April 2009.
