"A post that calls all people of a certain race "violent animals" or describes people of a certain sexual orientation as "disgusting" can feel very personal and, depending on someone's experiences, could even feel unsafe", Facebook said.

Facebook claims to have 1.94 billion monthly active users. Your video may not be ready yet, but you can find some other cool bits of information about your Facebook activity on the Good Adds Up page.

In January, Zuckerberg shared on Facebook that he was trying to travel to 30 states this year in order to achieve his goal of visiting and meeting people in every USA state. Last week, Facebook changed its "mission" from "Make the world more open and connected" to "Bring the world closer together", a move that reflects its growing emphasis on building online communities. Gerber Kawasaki Wealth & Investment Management boosted its position in Facebook by 1.0% in the fourth quarter. It does not include people who use the Instagram or WhatsApp networks but not Facebook. Facebook enables people to connect, share, discover and communicate with each other on mobile devices and personal computers. The company has relentlessly optimized its app for cheap Android smartphones and low bandwidth connections. It reached 1 billion in October 2012.

Facebook is no longer just about "connecting the world". It shows that the number of people using Facebook has doubled in just under 5 years.

Facebook has announced that it now boasts 2 billion monthly active users. Enterprise Financial Services Corp now owns 2,124 shares of the social networking company's stock valued at $302,000 after buying an additional 21 shares during the period.

Murder of teenage Muslim girl in U.S. sparks outrage
Sunday, after she and a group of teenagers walked back from breakfast and got into a dispute with a motorist. Nabra Hassanen, 17, of Reston, Virginia , was found dead in a pond near Washington, D.C., at about 3 p.m.

"We're making progress connecting the world, and now let's bring the world closer together", he wrote.

"There's a deep sense of responsibility in every part of the company" Cox told TechCrunch. That's really impressive, considering the scale of what we're talking about here. That's why he's been traveling around the world doing user research.

"Our society is still divided", Zuckerberg wrote in a Facebook post.

Facebook and Twitter have also collaborated with 30 odd news/tech outlets like the New York Times (NYT - Free Report), CNN and BuzzFeed, to be a part of the network called First Draft Coalition, to curb the fake news menace.

As reported by Bustle, Zuckerberg has already spent time in "crucial presidential primary states" this year, including "Ohio, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Iowa, amid a broader tour of the country". Facebook has largely conquered its competitors, giving it the slack to address the modern sociological challenges that stem from its popularity.
