When Facebook first started it was designed for use by students at Harvard University.  It quickly outgrew that and now boasts users around the world.  It seems that almost everyone either has a Facebook page, Has had one in the past or plans on getting one in the future.  Facebook allows people to share information about themselves and others with a large group of people. It has taken the distance between two people out of the equation when it comes to maintaining a relationship.  One of the keys to fully enjoying the Facebook experience is the ability to access anywhere.  If you can do that, it becomes something that is much more fun.

Updating Your Status

Your status on Facebook is a quick way for you to tell your Facebook friends what you are doing or how you are feeling.  The casual users of Facebook will update their status every few months or not at all.  The people who enjoy using Facebook will update their status on a regular basis and can change it several times a day.  In order to do that, they have to be able to connect to Facebook using a mobile computing device.  Tablets and smartphones are the perfect vehicle to doing this.  Because of the popularity of smartphones and tablets, Facebook is going to launch a new app aimed to IOS and Android operating systems.  These are some of the most popular operating systems for the mobile computing devices that are being used.   An application allows people to access their Facebook account with the touch of a single button.

What Does The App Offer

The application is going to offer its users access to the social channels that used to available only through the website or through Apps on Facebook.com.  The app will allow the users to bookmark their site so it is easier to navigate.  The requests dialogs will allow users to invite their friends to the app.  Authenticated referrals offer the users a little additional security when using Facebook and you will be able to access the news feeds that can be found on Facebook with this app.  The mobile ad app Tightrope will be one of the features that allow the users to automatically access the app store and Google play to find anything that they need.

The Growth of Facebook

There are some people who say that Facebook is starting to lose its steam.  They claim that fewer people are joining than had joined in the past.  While it is true that the amount of new people joining Facebook is slowing down, that is more a result of the fact that so many people have already joined.  When developers are able to come up with an app that makes it more effective for the users and for the advertisers who depend on Facebook, they are making an improvement that will be appreciated by all and that will help keep Facebook as the most influential social network that is being used today.
