From something that just started in Harvard students room, Facebook has become a worldwide success. Before it was just ?to let viewers comment on who was hot and who was not ? But after eight years ? Facebook is one of the hottest companies in the world?; I believe the Economist is trying to say if after a few years Facebook became such a hit why would it not be popular after another ten years.
?Facebook knows a staggering amount about its user? they come with new ideas such as the ?Timeline, a new profile page that encourages people to create an online archive about their lives.? The company then looks at the users information and finds out what they like ?and the hits their eyeballs with spookily well-targeted ads.? It is said by Booz &Company that ?$5 billion-worth of goods were sold this way.?
