Evaluation (10.12.2018)

Facebook is a social network service which allows people to create account and shared events with other users. It allows people to communicate in private conversation or in bigger groups. Groups can be founded around particular topic or a subject (course for example) and be restricted to certain participants only (course participants). Facebook has the permission to use the users name, profile picture and information about actions the users have taken on Facebook next to or in connection with ads, offers, and other sponsored content that Facebook display´s across products, without any compensation to the users.

What should be taken under consideration is that Facebook remains the right to use user content (including communications) for its own purposes. Using the service in higher education institutions, for example, this must be acknowledged. The service may not be a proper place to share sensitive material. 

The service provides a possibility to regulate publicity level of the material in some extent. For some communication and commenting actions this possibility does not exist, then content is always public. After termination of the account, user content is terminated as well (this ends also Facebook`s right to use material in its own purposes), except for the material which stays available in other users account. 

Facebook is mostly financed by marketing activity.

Service gathers quite much information about the user and combines it with other accessible information for example information received from marketers.
