Social media are used by people to connect with each other, make friends, find love, form professional relationships and so on. These social media are categorized into two major categories: Web based social networking and “app based” social networking.
The Web based social media include Facebook, which is considered as the largest social media network and it has a huge fan base. It started as a way for college students to share photos and chat, today it has become a valuable tool for social media marketing, and thus many companies are using Facebook to track engagement and visitor activity. Facebook has integrated an application called 1 Password that is used to create a unique user ID and password for each individual user and a different access code for groups, events, coworkers etc. This allows the company to track all actions by the user and create relevant reports.
