Facebook started as an online directory of Harvard College students in 2004. As popularity grew, the site expanded to other colleges and Ivy League schools across the US. On September 26, 2006, Facebook allowed anyone to join the social media network. The only requirements were to have a valid email address and be at least 13 years old. Some countries, however, do not allow access to the service. Since the access was open to everyone, Facebook has grown to have 1.86 billion active users each month. It is due to this that Facebook has grown to be the third most popular website in the world, behind YouTube and Google Search. Facebook allows users to post status messages, images, video and links to friends and groups. Each piece of content you publish can be shared with one or more people. You can control who sees your updates The News Feed feature is the main staple of Facebook. This allows you to view content highlights from friends, groups and pages you follow. Algorithms determine what content shows in the feed, much to the frustration of users. Facebook later provided options to allow you to fine tune your personalized feed, by notifying what you want to see more or less of. Another popular element to Facebook is the Like button. It was extended to include several other expressive notions to content. Such options besides Like includes, but is not limited to, Love, Sad, Wow, and Haha (funny). While rumors spread often, Facebook is a free to use service. The rumors were exacerbated further when chain letter posts were shared by thousands of users. The company provides advertising services to businesses to monetize the free service. Effective targeting methods to Facebook users that are interested in the content is one such method. Other services include sending gifts, buying virtual currency for games, or the marketplace.

Google Chrome is a free web browser developed by Google. It was released in 2008 and quickly became a popular choice. Based on figures from StatCounter, as of February 2017 it is estimated that Chrome has a 62% worldwide usage share. It is praised for its speed and simple interface design. Chrome was built on WebKit, a browser technology that is primarily developed by Apple for its flagship browser, Safari. It is developed as an open source product, making it free for others to use and modify. It wasn't until several years later that Google opted to fork a version of WebKit - making another copy of the technology. They then modified the renderer component from WebKit, which they refer to as Blink. Since Chrome version 28, Blink has replaced WebCore from WebKit as the browser's renderer. The renderer is what determines how a web page looks, which can have minor differences between browser vendors. The Opera browser has also come on board with Blink, using it as the browser's renderer since version 15. In prior versions, Opera used a proprietary renderer. Like other browsers, Chrome allows you to view web pages from your mobile device with ease. Like its desktop counterpart, the mobile version has support for tabbed windows. Many of the benefits are also universal, such as the speed and rich feature support. Google Chrome is a free browser for mobile devices and tablets. It receives regular updates from Google to keep your browsing experience safe and enjoyable.

Other Pokemon games are available on Nintendo devices, like the Nintendo 3DS. The aim of Pokemon Go puts the focus on your current location. By moving around in real-time, you are able to find nearby wild Pokemon that you can then capture. Special icons on the map show areas of interest for Pokemon Go players: PokeStops and gyms. PokeStops allow you to gain items, such as potions, berries and PokeBalls. You can also get eggs that when incubated can hatch in to a Pokemon. Eggs need you to walk a certain distance to hatch, ranging from 1–10 kilometers (0.62–6.2 miles). Pokemon Gyms are not like gyms from more traditional Pokemon games. Instead, you represent one of three teams - Valor, Mystic, and Instinct - which can then own the gym. While you have a Pokemon in your team's gym, it can earn rewards to make your Pokemon stronger. Defeating an opposing team gym's leader allows you to take over that gym for your team. More features and new Pokemon are added in regular updates. Pokemon trading, player vs. player battles, and Pokemon Centers are currently in development. Niantic has not provided any specific dates on when these will be released.
