Part 1 - My online presence and activities: My online presence tends to vary from day to day, depending on my activities. However, I realised that I use many different websites more often than I think. To accurately estimate the time I spend on each program, I downloaded a mobile app that tracks app usage, as well as setting a timer each day on my computer.

This varies depending on the day, my other commitments, and who is online to talk to. Facebook is a highly popular social media used to share photos, stories, and chat with friends. The founder of Facebook is Mark Zuckerberg, and the other chiefs of management are Sheryl Sandberg, Dave Wehner, Mike Schroepfer, and Chris Cox. Facebook is based and located in America. It is important to note that Facebook owns two other media companies - Whatsapp and Instagram - and a virtual reality company called Oculus. These programs and companies follow Facebook’s footsteps in terms and conditions and are heavily linked into Facebook itself when used.
