Would probably be a good idea to include pokes and reactions in the website section[edit]

Also, maybe a note on the controversy surrounding Facebook video hosting? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Doubletriplereversepsychology (talkcontribs) 17:12, 22 May 2016 (UTC) >"Free basics" controversy in India >Safety Check bug >U.S. federal tax examination >Support for terrorism lawsuit >Social impact/Emotional health impact/Political impact >United States/U.S. /USA... not a single word <FSB> or <KGB>. I see plainly bad. (Perhaps because of a drug poisoning?) Federally Intiligent Servise Russia is, indeed, no terrorist's or hacker's. Where to be ashamed? Face Boock User's are well covered by Moskwa. which is a positive momentHydrokortison Cortisol (talk) 15:01, 2 August 2016 (UTC)

Rainbow/US flag filter controversy[edit]

There should be an article about the rainbow flag filter created in the aftermath of the (fantastic) news in America, the news speculation about it being a Facebook social experiment, and the backlash by conservatives who are using a US flag filter. Theres def. something notable in there.

Racy screenshot of the website?[edit]

I think the screenshot of a user profile looks a bit racy and inappropriate for the article. Could I replace it with a different picture? Simplyianm (talk) 19:28, 5 October 2016 (UTC)

Facebook has introduced a new mask feature for live video, which is becoming a big platform for them. Masks is a feature that overlays certain designs on the user's face. I do not know if this is important enough to include in the article.

The numbers in the description section are dating from June 30, 2016. However, if you follow the reference link (in its "Stats" section), new numbers have been published by Facebook, dating from September 30, 2016. I suggest that these numbers are updated so the article can be as accurate as possible. Babolivier (talk) 23:09, 18 November 2016 (UTC)

Done Thank you for pointing that out! I've updated the number of employees to 15,724 and the number of active mostly users to 1.79 billion in the infobox per http://newsroom.fb.com/company-info/. Mz7 (talk) 03:33, 19 November 2016 (UTC)
