It is said that Zuckerberg’s mom is the only mom in the world who would advise him to spend more time on Facebook and what’s up instead of studying some useless stuff. Hah Hah!!! This term ‘Facebook’ has become the life of many millions of addicts. Well, they (Owners of Facebook) will not simply leave you with that. They had numerous ideas to keep you with them and spend your entire internet balance in their product sites and had a huge success in that.

This was an accusation of Facebook. Parse is a cloud host service which helps you to build your app. Since the app developers don’t have time to maintain certain of their user’s stuffs the services like Parse helps you with that.

The main reason is Facebook wants the app developers to use other opportunities as well apart from theirs which is very too doubtful.
This is a sheer attempt of Facebook to keep its users within its reach. This notify will bring the world news to your news feed in short.
