What Facebook Does With All The Domains Purchased?

I don’t know if you heard, but Facebook has recently generated hypothesis that it might be conceiving a car by itself to compete the likes of the new automobile-linked domain names of Google. A number of website domains listed Facebook.cars, Facebook.car and Facebook.auto in the last period.


While speculations said that Facebook might be developing a secret car-related project, after registering domains facebook.car and facebook.auto, Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook founder, maintained its focus on social media. He declared that developing new projects is not on his list of priorities.


Between all these assumptions, there were some that thought the company purchased them for the simply reason of defending its brand, which is acceptable thinking that they are not at present promoting any content. The main idea was to escape from all the high-priced legal struggles in the moment the supposed “cyber squatters” purchase domain names related to large companies and ask excessive amounts of money to free them.


Considering all this this, it could be a common use through large companies. Thus, in December Facebook also acquired the domain name Facebook.theatre. In present, Facebook is the owner of at least 2,300 domains.


These news arose after both Google registered .car and .cars in December and Apple the domains Apple.car and Apple.auto, which unleashed objections the company was designing an iCar. People already knew that Google developed a high profile driverless car and was not hard to assume that Facebook would be doing the same thing. Moreover, the vehicle was tried out the Mountain View in California. Heavy assumptions hunted Apple as well, talking about a self- driving electric car named Project Titan.


Imagine that if Facebook paid $8.5 million in 2010 for the domain fb.com, which is the eighth most expensive domain from all ages, now would be more than eager to do this.


The .auto and .car domains were introduced to companies at an event in December, thereby enabled current trademarks to buy domains related to their brand names time before they are released for public.




Mark Zuckerberg intends to create an artificially intelligent aid in 2016 that would help him at work and manage his home. It’s not a secret that every year engages himself in a personal challenge.


You can see its strategy in a Facebook post.


He declared that “This should be a fun intellectual challenge to code this for myself.” “I’m looking forward to sharing what I learn over the course of the year.”
