What started as a college kid meet-up is now the world's largest social network, boasting 1.15 billion users, according to CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg, and a company value of over $100 billion. Aside from the obvious, there isn't much censorship in the social media realm. It's also really easy to believe that the information is seen by your "friends" only, but at the end of the day, it's still the Internet.
