countries, romantic photos or other funny photos waiting for huge number of likes and comments like “Wow, great photos” and so on.
Tagging has become a tool for seeking special attention form people and getting more and more comments in the photo.

who doen’t know programming too can make it) where no coding is required (except for advanced stuffs). Various large companies
are starting to focus on gettinfg more likes in their facebook page rather than directly searchng for more traffics in their
website. Facebook page allows the updates to be appeared in the user’s news feed if the user has liked the page which
gives easy access to the user to the company’s update. With the huge increase of facebook users, the number of facebbok page has also eventually increased.
