What was used to Build FACEBOOK

5 New Member
Can anyone give me an idea of what programming language(s) was used to build a community site such as facebook? In particular I'm interested in the ability for businesses to generate pages and set a budget etc. This page explains a great deal but I also noticed java and .php.

Thank you in advance

Facebook has a developer platform so it might be best to look at what they require to interface with their APIs. I repeat though, it doesn't matter what language you use. Parts of the backend might be done in C/C++ but the front end has much more PHP or Java or Python or Ruby or whatever. C/C++ for speed. PHP, etc, for quicker development.

It only supports basic IntelliSense (or code completion) and doesn't have anything...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
