I really do not know what I heard about the rumors that Facebook wanted to change the “Like” button to awesome. Surprisingly, Facebook does not do it! This is a good thing because this awesome word is already used too much. Often, it’s about making unusual things to be usual. I may also have noticed that I used the word so often in my blog post. Although, many people were expecting to start using the like button as awesome back then. Deep within my heart, I know Facebook can’t change that button. Obviously, if you don’t know some facts about Facebook you may find it confusing to understand the ecosystem.
So let’s come back to the reality of social networks. Let me start from the facts about myself relating to social media. Facebook was the first social network I joined in the year 2007.

Currently, approximately 1,400 million users are distributed worldwide. Communicate between different cultures and let us share them in real time with your family and friends.
