What does the name mean Facebook?

Facebook comes from a platoon for the instructional data book of teaching subjects with which students are provided at several American universities.

The founders had initially limited Facebook membership only to Harvard students, but later expanded it for Boston, Princeton, Yale, Stanford universities.

Gradually, Facebook opened for students at colleges of other universities, then for high school students, and finally for all people aged 13 years everywhere in the world.

In 2012, Facebook was hailed as a $ 104 billion business company. While in 2023 this figure rose to $ 844 billion.
