Most companies do not establish in the market as fast as they would wish. It takes time to create a niche in the market place and get loyal customers who would boost the company. However, the reverse has been the case with Facebook Company (Collier, 2010). Since its foundation, Facebook has developed to be one of the most prolific companies in the internet information industry. The success of this company is attributed to many things; easy access, demographic location of customers, cost of operation and size of market served. Since the day Facebook's founder opened the door for third party developers, the company has experienced tremendous growth. Investors and businesses scramble at any opportunity to have shares with this company. Success of Facebook is also dependent on economic environment. Demand for internet related technology increase, and this requires the company to upgrade and meet such demands. However, there have been several lawsuits against Facebook Company over the years (Tara, 2013). Some happening before its official launch while others after it begins operation. Lawsuits are part of business operations and the company puts appropriate measures to handle all complaints.
The economic environment impacts on Facebook in a number of ways. Demand for internet technology is high, and this calls for companies to invest more on online advertising. Facebook allows companies to advertise on its page and determine target customers. To achieve this, a page is created and the demographic location with most likes becomes the best market for a particular commodity. Most people are spending a lot of time online, and the only way to market commodities faster is by reaching them on social sites (Collier, 2010). Facebook provides this platform for companies to market their products and determine the best market place.
