Facebook is everywhere. We use it from our desktops, laptops, mobile phones, tablets, even our TVs now. Everyone likes it, it is after all the true revolution of the Internet. Yes, Facebook is the platform that brought the real power of the Internet to each and everyone of its users: now we can share anything we want and stay connected to the people we care about and follow the brands we love.

These are just some of the questions that worry many users, and sometimes keep them from enjoying the real benefits of using Facebook.
