An HRESULT is a 32-bit signed integer, with nonnegative values indicating success, and negative values indicating failure. An HRESULT has three fields: the severity bit (to indicate success or failure), the facility code, and the status code. The "facility" indicates what component or program the HRESULT is coming from. Microsoft assigns facility codes to the various components, for example COM has one, the Task Scheduler has one, and so on. The "code" is a 16-bit field that has no intrinsic meaning; the codes are just an arbitrary association between a number and a meaning, just like the values returned by GetLastError() .
In that context, a national survey of 1,520 adults conducted March 7-April 4, 2016, finds that Facebook continues to be America’s most popular social networking platform by a substantial margin: Nearly eight-in-ten online Americans 1 (79%) now use Facebook, more than double the share that uses Twitter (24%), Pinterest (31%), Instagram (32%) or LinkedIn (29%). On a total population basis (accounting for Americans who do not use the internet at all), that means that 68% of all . adults are Facebook users, while 28% use Instagram, 26% use Pinterest, 25% use LinkedIn and 21% use Twitter.
