Facebook transformed the way people communicate with one another, forging connections between individuals from all over the world with distinct backgrounds. Peace on Facebook is a page dedicated to this global phenomenon and originates from Stanford University’s Peace Innovation under the project PeaceDot. The volunteer run initiative encourages organizations to create a URL with the structure: peace. [domain name], and use that page to show how they are contributing to a more peaceful world.  
Facebook has taken the peaceful plunge with a page that features data showing friend connections created every day with people from diverse backgrounds according to geographic region, religion and political affiliation. Which is to say - Facebook is making this world a little bit more peaceful, one friend request at a time. [Source: Peace on Facebook]
