Boasting of more than 1500 million active users, Facebook is the leading social networking site in the world. From letting you share your favorite photos to create a special page to connect with your targeted audience; the social app is highly impressive.

Facebook reminds you of your old posts. Personally, I like this feature as they help me recollect the fond memories of my past.
