Facebook: A Complete Book to Know about, Create an account or log into Facebook, connect with friends, relatives from all over the world. Share photos, videos, memes, status, stories and so on. This is all it provides.

Have you ever wondered how many millions of people are connected to Facebook?

At the scale that Facebook operates, a lot of traditional approaches to serving Web content break down or simply aren’t practical.

While we head more in this article, I would like to share with you some stats regarding facebook:

  • Facebook serves nearly 570 billion page views per month.
  • There are more photos on Facebook as compared to any other site.
  • More than 3 billion photos are uploaded every month.
  • The Facebook server serves almost 1.2 million photos per second.
  • More than 25 billion pieces of content(status, stories, comments etc) are shared every month.
  • Facebook has more than 30,000 servers.

Software that helps Facebook scale:

  • Facebook still uses PHP, but it has built a compiler for it so it can be turned into native code on its Web servers.
  • Facebook uses LINUX, but it has optimised for its own purpose.
  • Facebook uses MySQL, but primarily as key-value persistent storage.

Facebook has been among the topmost priority in smartphones. People are heavily connected to this social media site. They keep on chatting and scrolling feeds all throughout the day and wasting their hours and hours on this app. Due to which users are addicted to this app.

Here we discuss with you some signs of Facebook addiction:

1-Spending excessive time on Facebook is a clear red flag. If you spend more than 2 hours a day, then you are addicted.

2- Busy updating your profile is another addiction to Facebook. Users keep on updating their status, photos, comments on the different post also a type of addiction.

3- You miss a deadline or you are late for office meetings because you are lost in the Facebook world is an addiction.

4- Friends List Comparison: This issue is often seen in many Facebook users. People often send a request to those from whom they have not met for years. They keep on the inthe creasing list and at last, they finish on making a huge list, but they don’t know even half of that number.

Why you shouldn’t use Facebook to log in to other sites?

Nowadays, if we are surfing on some other sites then to log in to that site, it needs your verification like email, mobile no., and usually ask for your Facebook account to get connected to it. And to ease up your work it sometimes is dangerous and may harm your privacy.

If you are doing it, then it will surely harm your privacy, as Facebook stated in their latest comment as ‘A security breach allowed hackers to infiltrate the accounts of at least 50 million users. The hackers gave attackers access to not only Facebook accounts but many other accounts which you have logged in via Facebook like Instagram, Spotify, Airbnb, Tinder, Pinterest, Expedia, The New York Times and many other platforms’.

This is the matter to take care of. As it is harmful to the users of not only Facebook but for the other social media platforms as well. As hackers may destroy your privacy and can harm your profile.

The best way to solve this issue is to use a dedicated password manager, a service like the last password or 1password that creates and remember strong passwords for different sites. Operating systems are also getting better to fight with this problem and getting better at managing passwords: newer iPhone s for instance, face recognition should come into force, which is just as convenient as pressing the Facebook button.
