Unless you have been living under a Wi-Fi proof rock, you may already have an idea in what Facebook is all about; and a good chance you are one of the 1.8 billion active users. I make this somewhat hasty assumption purely based on, that if two of my grandparents and a friend’s cat called “Marbles” have found their way onto the online sensation, so too may you.

This app has taken everything that was popular with the computer browsing experience, and transformed it into a pocket-sized powerhouse. If you don't already have an account, follow a painless registration process, and Facebook will recommend you "Friends" based on your email contacts. Touch and swipe your way around the interface to create a dashing profile, and type in a status to let other's know – just how the devil you are doing!

▲ Customize your page and what information other users can see.

▲ Facebook calculates which contacts you most frequently interact with, and lets you know if they are online.

▲ Go Live to your friends, and even the general public - great for broadcasting events!

This app takes social networking so much further than sending a barricade of whimsical emoji, memes, and Vines back and forth between friends. Download and integrate third party apps, challenge chums to games, and create and promote events. You can even make a group which allows you to start a social channel based on work or personal interests!

Attention to detail is more the prevalent if you go searching: from changing font sizes of posts, to having your profile picture as a video instead. Keep fresh in the minds of loved ones by sharing precious memories from the past, and tag others in photos and statuses. A great thing about this app, you can be selective with what users can see on your page; arguably keeping both yours and Marbles's public image looking tip-top!
