Starting out as a small website exclusively for college students, Facebook has grown into a multi-billion dollar company with nearly 2 billion users. Over the years, Facebook has grown, changed, and updated in order to create the best possible experience for its users. During this growth, Facebook acquired various companies, 66 to be exact, for different reasons.
The acquisition of these companies along the way has allowed Facebook to expand its list of capabilities and advance its technology while growing the brand into a leader in the social media world. For example, Facebook’s acquisition of facial recognition and virtual reality brands help to solidify its identity as a cutting-edge brand on the forefront of new trends. Other acquisitions such as Instagram have allowed for a more seamless experience across different social media platforms, allowing users to post the same photo across different platforms with one touch.
