It popularized the notion of an all-touchscreen phone (even though similar handsets like the LG Prada preceded it), did away with the concept of a stylus and made it a lot easier to download and install apps.

But Facebook also changed computing. From Netflix to Uber to Walmart’s website, many of the apps and services we use every day are built with technologies that Facebook developed and then shared with the world. As the company grew to accommodate millions, and eventually billions, of users, it had to create tools, from data storage software that can handle mind-boggling amounts of user information to hardware designs for data centers that host those databases. More recently it created new ways to build interfaces for its web and mobile apps. Crucially, Facebook didn't keep these creations to itself. It released much its work as open source, meaning that anyone else could use, modify, and share Facebook's inventions. "Facebook has been a driving force in open source for … [Read more...] about How Facebook Has Changed Computing
