The site is very light which is an advantage with all those high end features.
It is a Cradle of Information
Facebook is known as a networking website which aims to join the people, even from the different sides of the world. Having a lot of connections, Facebook becomes a source of information. Users may read posts or even news from their feed. The more people they follow, the more updates that the users get.

There have been numerous attempts of competition for Facebook but none of them made it like how Facebook did. It constantly updates and launches new features in different platforms. From time to time, the timeline, feeds and trending topics changes which makes it more interesting. But usage of these kind of sites should be done moderately especially for the young ones. As mentioned, Facebook allows anyone who are at least 14 years of age, but it doesn’t mean that they should. Early ages easily builds friendship and it would not be good if it is done online in their kind of age. Socialization skills are best learned in real life.
