Facebook completely changed the way people used to interact with each other.
Facebook has really become a social networking website, where you can meet new people, get in touch with old friends, and follow your favorite celebrities.

- User is contacting other users to advertise a product and continues to do so
- They are running their account in a way that, it is not as per the terms and conditions of Facebook
