About Facebook App for Android
Facebook is a social networking application created by Mark Zuckerburg. It is an application popular amongst people of all ages. People use this app to see what their friends and fellow users are doing and what is trending amongst people nowadays. There are currently more than 2.2 billion users on Facebook.
Facebook is available on all devices with internet connectivity. You as a user can make your profiles with your info and pictures on them. Then people who know you or want to know you can send you friend requests and get along after you accept their friend request.
You can then post photos, videos, or text on your profile which can then be viewed by your Facebook friends. They can give thumbs up on that picture or select a different emotion for that picture, or they can also comment on it. And if they find it interesting, they can also share that post on their Facebook wall which can then be viewed by their friend's circle as well.

Once you’ve added some people as your friends, they are going to share some posts and stuff with you, so if you want to view that, you can swipe right once more or tap on the bell icon in the top corner. There you’ll see all your notifications about new friend requests if your friend has added a new photo or tagged you in a post etc.

If you want to chat with someone through Facebook, you can use its separate app called Facebook Messenger. If you have already downloaded the messenger app, you can tap on the messenger icon in the top right corner of the screen. It is going to open its chatting app, and then you can chat with any of your friends you want.
Messenger was an app inside Facebook before 2011, but after 2011 Facebook made it into a separate app. It has some different useful features in it as well. You can chat with people through text messages or even voice, or video calls through Facebook Messenger.
It has really useful features built into it. One of the most useful features is “chat popups,” you can chat with anyone through Facebook Messenger while using any app you want. It is just going to show a small popup on any corner of the screen, and you can tap on it and talk with them through that while using another app in the background.

If you don’t want to add that you can also ask and talk to all of your friends at once through the “create a post” feature available on Facebook. You can add questionnaires to ask your friends something or tell something to your friends quickly.
Find and interact with nearby Friends
There is also a new feature added recently to Facebook, and that is “Nearby Friends.” You can check if any of your friends are near you at that time. But it is only going to work if you and your friends have internet and GPS connectivity to sync your location and their location and check if they are near you.
One of the best and most useful features of Facebook is finding places to eat and hang out with your friends. You can search for places near you, check their rating, and see what these places are about.

Facebook for Businesses
