  • Works For Teens! Hey, I'm only 18 and I thought I was going to have small boobs forever. After using your book for about 2 weeks, I started seeing results! I then used it for another month and I managed to get my breasts up to a C cup (with padding). I'm so pleased and I'm getting a lot more attention from boys now! Thanks you ☺☺☺ https://dwz1.cc/aRWJhQS6

The facebook effect power point

  1. 1. The Facebook Effect: Chapters 1-4 By: Gina Rohn
  2. 2. Facebook: Creating a Revolution… Literally Oscar Morales a regular everyday citizen of Barranquilla, Colombia was on vacation and frustrated with what was happening in his county. FARC the revolutionary armed forces were known for mistreating and holding 700 Colombian hostages. Fed up with how FARC was treating citizens he wondered what to do. Going to Facebook he searched FARC, because Facebook was known for having a group for everything. But he found nothing. No groups. No activism. No Outrage. Morales had decided to take matters into his own hands and created a group against FARC. He entitled it “One Million Voices Against FARC- Un Millon de Voces Contra Las Farc”
  3. 3. Growth of “Un Millon de Voces Contra Las FARC” • He sent an invite before he went to bed at 3am to his approx. 100 friends. • By 9am 1,500 people had joined • Late afternoon 4,000 • Approx. 2 days later 8,000
  4. 4. A “Revolution” was Born Facebook Event, National March Against FARC was created.
  5. 5. FACEBOOK EVENT- MARCH AGAINST FARC • On February 4th almost exactly a month after the Facebook group formed the Facebook Event March Against FARC took place. About 10 million people marched against FARC in hundreds of cities in Colombia. • Almost 2 million more marched in cities across the world. • Catching the attention of the Colombian President he was provided with security and helped coordinate demonstration that was caught national TV coverage. • This helped lead to freeing of hostages, the weakening of FARC, and a cause that is still alive and running today.
  6. 6. All of this started with an ordinary citizen, in his bedroom, with his computer, and… FACEBOOK
  7. 7. Definition: FACEBOOK EFFECT • The Facebook effect happens when the service puts people in touch with each other, often unexpectedly, about common experience, interest, problem, or cause. • Can occur in a small or large scale- from a group of two or three friends or a family or millions. • Can be over serious gatherings such as Anti-FARC events, or organization of a huge pillow fight.
  8. 8. Marc Zuckerbergs View of Facebook • “We’re a utility, we are trying to increase the efficiency through which people can understand their world. We’re not trying to maximize the time spent on our site. We’re trying to help people have a good experience and get the maximum amount out of that time.”
  9. 9. Chapter One Getting to know the Creator • Mark Zuckerberg was a Harvard University student who in his sophomore year in 2003 really began to create Facebook. Known for his huge white board where he drew out his ideas. Lots of his ideas were for services on the internet. • Short, slender, and intense introvert- his classic uniform was baggy jeans, rubber sandals, and a t-shirt with some clever picture or phrase.
  10. 10. Chapter One Previous Internet Ideas at Harvard Course Smart • Created for fun. • Idea was to help students pick classes based on who else was taking them. • You could click on a course, see who was signed up, or click on a person and see what classes they were taking. Facemash • First look at his “rebellious side”. • Purpose: figure out who was the hottest on campus. • He invited users to compare two different faces of the same sex and say who was hotter.
  11. 11. Chapter One Creation of TheFacbook.com • He went online Jan 2004 and paid $35 for the web address Thefacebook.com • Ideas were borrowed from Course Match, Facemash, and a site called Friendster. • This was an attempt to put together a social site for Harvard that officials kept promising but never created.
  12. 12. Chapter Two Facebook Begins Growing • What started off as just available at Harvard, grew to all the ivy league schools, and by the time Spring 2004 semester ended was available at 34 schools. • That summer Marc decided to go out to Palo, California and rent a house. • Idea was the Palo Alto was a mythical place when all the techs come from. • Him and his friends would work that summer to expand Facebook.
  13. 13. Chapter Two An Interesting Point • What helped Facebook Grow was the deliberate slow pace of Thefacbook’s growth. • They slowly added new campus, watching the traffic surge, grow and level off. • If any issues occurred they would wait before adding new servers.
  14. 14. Chapter Two Leaving Harvard • During that summer they had planned to launch to 70 new colleges. • Zuckerberg realized it would be a big year for Facebook and he wouldn’t return to Harvard. • Several of his friends working on the project went back to Harvard, while others like Zuckerberg did not. • Almost all friends/co workers regardless on school situation stayed on with Facebook.
  15. 15. Chapter Three Social Networking and the Internet • The concepts of social networking are not new, and many of the components of the early Facebook were originally pioneered by others. • Zuckerberg has been accused of stealing the ideas that created Facebook several times. • Fact is his service is a heir to ideas that have been evolving for forty years.
  16. 16. Chapter Three Engineers of the Internet The idea of Facebook was envisioned by engineers who laid the groundwork for the Internet. In a 11968 essay titled “The Computer as Communication Device,” the authors asked “what will online interactive communication look like. The idea crept toward the concept of social networking when it said, “You will not send a letter or a telegram: you will simply identify the people whose files should be linked towards yours”.
  17. 17. CHAPTER THREE Expansion of Social Networking • Social networking has now expanded to the entire planet. • With the release of Facebook becoming available to everyone to join, not just those with .edu email addresses it has become the worlds largest social media network. • It is the rare student who does not routinely check Facebook.
  18. 18. CHAPTER FOUR FALL 2004 “Look at the world around you. With the slightest push-in just the right place- it can be tipped.” In the fall of 2004 TheFacebook was in serious crisis. Membership doubled from 100,000 to 200,000. Good because membership was up, and back because their severs just couldn’t handle it. Service became unsable. Between this and inner company tension, things were very unstable.
  19. 19. CHAPTER FOUR FALL 2004 • Facebook still wasn’t available to all schools. • People were sending letters candy, flowers, or even showed up begging. • But funds were limited and servers were a serious problem.
  20. 20. CHAPTER FOUR FACBOOK MEETS LINKED IN 2004 people were wondering if all social networking would converge into one big network. Linkedin founder Reid Hoffman didn’t believe so. Regardless Hoffman didn’t want to invest in Facebook believing it would lead to a conflict of interest, but would introduce them to other key players.
