Also, some users note that Facebook has a somewhat overloaded interface, which makes it difficult to get used to and use the functions of the network.
Other popular social networks are such world-famous sites as Twitter, which allows you to share short notes and incidents in life with other users, Livejournal, which allows you to maintain a fully functional blog, and Google+, which has not yet gained wide popularity among users in Russia.
