    Lot of publicity .because there are several other social networking sites like orkut but are not popular.moreover due to some extra features of games and cool applications facebook is popular

    Here in the USA, first it was Friendster, then it was MySpace and now it is Facebook. The why is because each site was an improvement over the one that came before it. Also Facebook had good timing: the average person was "ready" for it by the time social sites became extremely popular, whereas MySpace was already "old" by the time many people learned about social sites. People were already leaving MySpace to join "the next big thing". The combination of timing, popular features and publicity all came together to make Facebook a huge hit. Will it last? It's in a great position to remain strong but who knows really. Time will tell...

    I agree with all the hubbers answers, I just love being able to share words and pics with all my family back home in New York, and a few great friends stationed overseas!

    People are sheep and they always follow the crowd and Facebook is the crowd.
