From its humble beginnings to becoming the world’s most influential social media platform, Facebook has seen phenomenal growth in 16 years, attracting 2.6 billion monthly users from across the world. In fact, the story of its inception had even inspired Hollywood filmmakers to make an Oscar-winning biopic of Mark Zuckerberg called “The Social Network”, one of the highest-grossing films of 2010.
As in the US, Facebook also gained wide acceptance and prominence in the rest of the world. Even in Dubai alone, the platform boasted a user base of 4.5 million people in 2018. However, with the rise of other social media platforms with almost the same features and services, like sharing thoughts, posting photos and videos and following brands, it is now time to check the present trend of the platform. Does Facebook have the same popularity that it once had?
