The Power of Facebook. Let’s face it, there’s almost not a single soul out there on this planet earth who doesn’t own a Facebook account unless that person is from outer space or lives in the jungle with the wilds. Nowadays, it is really rare to meet someone who isn’t keen on Facebook.
Every baby boomer, generation X and all the way to the generation Y, are obsessed with the Mark Zuckerberg’s genius invention. Facebook is indeed an important part of people’s lives; this is evident from the rumour that Mark Zuckerberg would end the site made many distraught. It’s quite a wonder how life had been prior to Facebook.
