Founded in 2004, Facebook serves as one of the world’s largest social media platforms. A public company tradable under the stock ticker FB, Facebook lets users post pictures, videos and updates, as well as chat and connect with people, among other functions on its platform. Users can also buy and sell things on Facebook Marketplace and chat on their mobile devices via the Facebook Messenger app. 

Facebook has faced scrutiny for questionable practices. Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has spoken in a number of U.S. government hearings. 

In 2019, the company released a white paper detailing its Facebook Libra, a type of stablecoin cryptocurrency. The project met notable regulatory scrutiny and has since changed its name from Libra to Diem.
