2017 Update

Facebook has gone long way since it’s beginning. It has now a complex matrix to determine how people react more with it’s front and back end. So, they are adjusting continuously.

We assume that in near future each people’s feed will look different depending on how a person looks on the screen, what color he/she likes and where they live etc.

Facebook is collecting huge data and some of them are not legal. A breach might be on the way.

2018 Update

It’s almost the end of 2018 and the evolution of Facebook still continues. It’s still the number one social media on the internet. We assume it will continue thriving in the next year and so.

Although this year doesn’t go well for the Facebook team and Mark Zuckerberg in terms of security and reputation. On two different occasions, user data were breached in 2018. One of them was pretty serious and almost made 400,000 people vulnerable to the attack.

Facebook has immediately taken steps for that. Who knows what is coming in the future days.

In terms of Design and Functionality, there weren’t much change on the appearance of the website. Very small tweaks like the square of the profile picture became round and the feed text boxes shadow and cornering etc.

Facebook ads revenue increases and cost for advertising also increased both for CPC and CPM.

Facebook is giving the group owners much more flexibility and ways to earn from the community by paid subscription.

Pages are getting more business oriented as more and more businesses are joining on Facebook for brand exposure.

This year we have seen more videos are showing on the mobile feed. There is also a dedicated video icon on the Facebook’s mobile app.

There is not much change from the last year. At least not anything big to notice. Facebook is focusing more on the mobile app.
