No only small websites like facebook can use it.

Eheh as said in other comments, React CAN be used for big projects, of course, but still isn't created to do so. And, by the way, Facebook's UI is nothing too fancy or special and React is a perfect suite for it. You can tell me Facebook has an incredible top-notch back-end, but UI and front-end in general is not in the "Top 10 hardest websites to build" IMO.

Then you have not updated to the new Facebook UI on desktop and React is 100% created for big projects what are you talking about? the component model is the only way different teams can work on different parts in the UI the best. Facebook has a new website now, and it is not simple and one of the most advanced UIs out there. And Twitter, Binance trading market, Tweetdeck (WebApp), Reddit, Techcrunch, and many more disagree with you.

I don't agree with the new Facebook being "one of the most advanced UIs" in the web world, but it's an opinion and I can accept it. I never said it doesn't work in big projects, I'm just saying it works in medium-small ones in its simplest form and has to be mastered before you can use it in big projects.
