Minor edit[edit]

I think "reaching a peak market capitalization of $104 billion"

Should be "reaching an original peak market capitalization of $104 billion"

Currently it now has a market cap of $175.3b so $104b was not the peak market cap.

"Most popular accounts" and "Fastest-growing accounts" subsections[edit]

I revised these two subsections today, as they were being used as promotional tools for celebrities in the lists and were not encyclopedic presentations of data. I will keep a continual eye on this, as the section is being updated in an ongoing manner—any help is of course appreciated.--Soulparadox (talk) 10:10, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

Date Founded and Image Caption[edit]

The article mentions the founding date as being February 4th, 2004 in the article, but lists the "Date Founded" as May 25th 1956. Image caption is also misleading - 'Facebook, Inc is giving away free lapt0p'. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.181.132.183 (talk) 19:11, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

ID REQUIRED[edit]

Facebook does require proof of age and Identity after failed attempts to login. This is done by asking for a government (Student or license) ID with a photo.[1] Matthew AdamFrancis (talk) 09:21, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

does 'service' equal 'company'?[edit]

Small point perhaps but the first line says Facebook is a social networking service, then the last line of the lede starts talking about Facebook Inc. and much of the article is about the company. Is there a significant difference? --Richardson mcphillips (talk) 23:43, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

Such questions are beyond the scope of this page, the purpose of which to discuss improvements to the article. It is not for general discussion of the subject. Perhaps you can find a "help" page on Facebook?--Rollins83 (talk) 13:17, 19 September 2014 (UTC)

Facebook hacked? Security Issue?[edit]

I got one of those spam, scammer emails recently. You know "Someone of your surname has died leaving a $10 million etc". As this email address is anonymous I wrote back to the hacker asking what the surname was, just winding up the scammer. S/he wrote back giving the surname from my FaceBook account associated with that email addy. (Not my real name.) Now we all know that FaceBook knows our email addys but it seems easy enough for scammers/hackers to get our FaceBook usernames from our email addys too. Probably not worth a mention in the article but I thought people might be interested. I am also curious to know if FaceBook were aware of this and if so are they interested?

Email Facebook then. Wikipedia has nothing to do with their policies. Two different sites yo. IPUpfficia (talk) 22:11, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
