It satisfies viewers’ curiosity on how and what brought about the creation of one of the most successful websites in all time.

There is no doubt that the movie is riveting and is sure to appeal to everyone who uses Facebook – even those who do not.

Facebook, primarily serves as a networking site for many. People log into their accounts to connect with friends and loved ones. The site also has a chat feature that allows its users to chat with their online friends. But more than just being a tool for networking, it also offers several forms of entertainment. Facebook games continue to hook users of different ages. It allows everyone to share photos or videos with friends from the other side of the world. Entrepreneurs even use the site to market their products and to reach out to a global market.

Kids, for instance, enjoy kiddie games like Pet Society. Beachtown, which is one of the newest online applications on Facebook today, allows beach bums to enjoy beach life any time they want to.
