Facebook started as an online directory of Harvard College students in 2004. As popularity grew, the site expanded to other colleges and Ivy League schools across the US. On September 26, 2006, Facebook allowed anyone to join the social media network. The only requirements were to have a valid email address and be at least 13 years old. Some countries, however, do not allow access to the service. Since the access was open to everyone, Facebook has grown to have 1.86 billion active users each month. It is due to this that Facebook has grown to be the third most popular website in the world, behind YouTube and Google Search. Facebook allows users to post status messages, images, video and links to friends and groups. Each piece of content you publish can be shared with one or more people. You can control who sees your updates The News Feed feature is the main staple of Facebook. This allows you to view content highlights from friends, groups and pages you follow. Algorithms determine what content shows in the feed, much to the frustration of users. Facebook later provided options to allow you to fine tune your personalized feed, by notifying what you want to see more or less of. Another popular element to Facebook is the Like button. It was extended to include several other expressive notions to content. Such options besides Like includes, but is not limited to, Love, Sad, Wow, and Haha (funny). While rumors spread often, Facebook is a free to use service. The rumors were exacerbated further when chain letter posts were shared by thousands of users. The company provides advertising services to businesses to monetize the free service. Effective targeting methods to Facebook users that are interested in the content is one such method. Other services include sending gifts, buying virtual currency for games, or the marketplace.

Google Chrome

Google Chrome is a free web browser developed by Google. It was released in 2008 and quickly became a popular choice. Based on figures from StatCounter, as of February 2017 it is estimated that Chrome has a 62% worldwide usage share. It is praised for its speed and simple interface design. Chrome was built on WebKit, a browser technology that is primarily developed by Apple for its flagship browser, Safari. It is developed as an open source product, making it free for others to use and modify. It wasn't until several years later that Google opted to fork a version of WebKit - making another copy of the technology. They then modified the renderer component from WebKit, which they refer to as Blink. Since Chrome version 28, Blink has replaced WebCore from WebKit as the browser's renderer. The renderer is what determines how a web page looks, which can have minor differences between browser vendors. The Opera browser has also come on board with Blink, using it as the browser's renderer since version 15. In prior versions, Opera used a proprietary renderer. Like other browsers, Chrome allows you to view web pages from your mobile device with ease. Like its desktop counterpart, the mobile version has support for tabbed windows. Many of the benefits are also universal, such as the speed and rich feature support. Google Chrome is a free browser for mobile devices and tablets. It receives regular updates from Google to keep your browsing experience safe and enjoyable.

WhatsApp
Communication
WhatsApp is a simple, free-to-use communications app to send messages to other WhatsApp users. You can send simple text messages, images, video, documents, and make calls. You can start conversations with one person, or create and join group conversations. WhatsApp can use your internet connection instead, helping you reduce your mobile bill. WhatsApp began in 2009 as an idea between Brian Acton and Jan Koum, former employees of Yahoo. Around the time the App Store became a feature on iPhones, Acton and Koum saw the potential apps could have. After buying an iPhone, the pair began working on WhatsApp - a portmanteau of sorts putting "what's up?" and "app" together in one word. WhatsApp shot to success and was bought by Facebook for about $19.3 billion US dollars in 2014. WhatsApp is popular among smartphone users, with over 1 billion people worldwide using the app. This makes WhatsApp the most popular messaging application app in the world. A former popular messaging app, MSN Messenger, only had around 330 million users. One of the main elements to the app that attracts users is the security. WhatsApp maintains a strong, end-to-end encryption of all messages and calls. This means that only the people you chat or speak with will see it. Such encryptions also means the team at WhatsApp can't access your information. To get started, users need to enter in their mobile phone number. This acts as your unique ID on the service. Friends and family that also use WhatsApp can be added to your contact list, if you allow WhatsApp to read your phone contacts. From there, choose the person you want to start a conversation with and start messaging! Whether it's texting a college friend to organize a study group, sending funny GIFs to your friends, or calling family, WhatsApp can do all that, and more.

It allows users to listen to music from Pandora's catalogue either for free with ads, or for a monthly subscription fee. While it is common users play through the mobile app, Pandora also includes web browser support. To begin listening to music, you start a station by choosing an artist, a song, or a combination thereof. This creates a station that then, based on your feedback, will generate a playlist of songs based off the artist and/or song selections. You can then say that you like the song playing with a thumbs up, or not like with a thumbs down. This will then fine tune the song selections moving forward to be closer to your music style. Pandora also includes links to allow you to buy any songs or albums you like direct from iTunes or Amazon. Users can create and save personalized radio stations and playlists within Pandora. You do need to register an account with Pandora, and be at least 13 years of age. Pandora is powered by the Music Genome Project. This ambitious big data project uses around 450 data points to harmoize song selections. Such data points could include harmony, rhythm, instruments played, and more.

Facebook started as an online directory of Harvard College students in 2004. As popularity grew, the site expanded to other colleges and Ivy League schools across the US. On September 26, 2006, Facebook allowed anyone to join the social media network. The only requirements were to have a valid email address and be at least 13 years old. Some countries, however, do not allow access to the service. Since the access was open to everyone, Facebook has grown to have 1.86 billion active users each month. It is due to this that Facebook has grown to be the third most popular website in the world, behind YouTube and Google Search. Facebook allows users to post status messages, images, video and links to friends and groups. Each piece of content you publish can be shared with one or more people. You can control who sees your updates The News Feed feature is the main staple of Facebook. This allows you to view content highlights from friends, groups and pages you follow. Algorithms determine what content shows in the feed, much to the frustration of users. Facebook later provided options to allow you to fine tune your personalized feed, by notifying what you want to see more or less of. Another popular element to Facebook is the Like button. It was extended to include several other expressive notions to content. Such options besides Like includes, but is not limited to, Love, Sad, Wow, and Haha (funny). While rumors spread often, Facebook is a free to use service. The rumors were exacerbated further when chain letter posts were shared by thousands of users. The company provides advertising services to businesses to monetize the free service. Effective targeting methods to Facebook users that are interested in the content is one such method. Other services include sending gifts, buying virtual currency for games, or the marketplace.

Google Chrome is a free web browser developed by Google. It was released in 2008 and quickly became a popular choice. Based on figures from StatCounter, as of February 2017 it is estimated that Chrome has a 62% worldwide usage share. It is praised for its speed and simple interface design. Chrome was built on WebKit, a browser technology that is primarily developed by Apple for its flagship browser, Safari. It is developed as an open source product, making it free for others to use and modify. It wasn't until several years later that Google opted to fork a version of WebKit - making another copy of the technology. They then modified the renderer component from WebKit, which they refer to as Blink. Since Chrome version 28, Blink has replaced WebCore from WebKit as the browser's renderer. The renderer is what determines how a web page looks, which can have minor differences between browser vendors. The Opera browser has also come on board with Blink, using it as the browser's renderer since version 15. In prior versions, Opera used a proprietary renderer. Like other browsers, Chrome allows you to view web pages from your mobile device with ease. Like its desktop counterpart, the mobile version has support for tabbed windows. Many of the benefits are also universal, such as the speed and rich feature support. Google Chrome is a free browser for mobile devices and tablets. It receives regular updates from Google to keep your browsing experience safe and enjoyable.

WhatsApp is a simple, free-to-use communications app to send messages to other WhatsApp users. You can send simple text messages, images, video, documents, and make calls. You can start conversations with one person, or create and join group conversations. WhatsApp can use your internet connection instead, helping you reduce your mobile bill. WhatsApp began in 2009 as an idea between Brian Acton and Jan Koum, former employees of Yahoo. Around the time the App Store became a feature on iPhones, Acton and Koum saw the potential apps could have. After buying an iPhone, the pair began working on WhatsApp - a portmanteau of sorts putting "what's up?" and "app" together in one word. WhatsApp shot to success and was bought by Facebook for about $19.3 billion US dollars in 2014. WhatsApp is popular among smartphone users, with over 1 billion people worldwide using the app. This makes WhatsApp the most popular messaging application app in the world. A former popular messaging app, MSN Messenger, only had around 330 million users. One of the main elements to the app that attracts users is the security. WhatsApp maintains a strong, end-to-end encryption of all messages and calls. This means that only the people you chat or speak with will see it. Such encryptions also means the team at WhatsApp can't access your information. To get started, users need to enter in their mobile phone number. This acts as your unique ID on the service. Friends and family that also use WhatsApp can be added to your contact list, if you allow WhatsApp to read your phone contacts. From there, choose the person you want to start a conversation with and start messaging! Whether it's texting a college friend to organize a study group, sending funny GIFs to your friends, or calling family, WhatsApp can do all that, and more.

The Facebook Messenger app helps provide that feature in a streamlined manner. Over time, Facebook added more features to the Messenger service. Users are now able to make video calls, share funny GIFs and even play games. Some features currently being tested in the US include peer-to-peer payments, and business integrations. One such business integration is with ecommerce sites. Shopify has partnered with Facebook Messenger to browse and even buy direct through the app. This is handled through chat bots, automated systems that can understand a user request and reply accordingly. Other chat bots are being rolled out. CNN offer personalized news articles based on interest. Poncho offers weather forecasts in your local area. Spring offers a personal shopping assistant. And more are being added to Messenger on a regular basis. Facebook Messenger does not provide an option to log out of the app. Instead, it allows you to appear as inactive, switch Messenger accounts or turn off push notifications.

Pandora Radio (or just Pandora) is a music streaming service available in selected countries. It allows users to listen to music from Pandora's catalogue either for free with ads, or for a monthly subscription fee. While it is common users play through the mobile app, Pandora also includes web browser support. To begin listening to music, you start a station by choosing an artist, a song, or a combination thereof. This creates a station that then, based on your feedback, will generate a playlist of songs based off the artist and/or song selections. You can then say that you like the song playing with a thumbs up, or not like with a thumbs down. This will then fine tune the song selections moving forward to be closer to your music style. Pandora also includes links to allow you to buy any songs or albums you like direct from iTunes or Amazon. Users can create and save personalized radio stations and playlists within Pandora. You do need to register an account with Pandora, and be at least 13 years of age. Pandora is powered by the Music Genome Project. This ambitious big data project uses around 450 data points to harmoize song selections. Such data points could include harmony, rhythm, instruments played, and more. These data points are used to determine the best songs to add to a radio station users listen to. Due to licensing restrictions of the project, this limits the availability of Pandora to a select few countries. To date, this only includes the United States, Australia and New Zealand. In 2014, Pandora reported they have over 250 million registered users, with 79.9 million monthly active users in 2016. Pandora also has around 70% of the internet radio market in the US.
