Facebook is a free popular social network that allows users to create profiles, upload photos and videos, send messages and stay in touch with your friends, family, coworkers and acquaintance. The site, which is available in 37 different languages, includes public functions such as allowing members to post, read and respond to classified ads, allowing members with common interests to find each other and interact; the opportunity for members to publicize an event, invite and follow who plans to attend, and also create and promote a public page built around a specific theme.
In the personal profile of each member, there are several key elements for networking. The most popular is probably the wall, which is essentially a virtual bulletin board. Messages left on the wall of a member can be text, videos or photos. Another popular item is the virtual photo album. Photos can be downloaded from the desktop or directly from a smartphone. There is no limitation on quantity, but Facebook administrators will remove inappropriate images or content violating copyright. All Facebook interactions are published in a news feed that is distributed in real time for the member’s friends.
Facebook offers a range of privacy options to its members. A member can make all his communications visible to everyone, or he can block specific connections or keep all his communications private. Members may choose to be searchable, decide which parts of their profile are public, decide what should not be put on their news feed and determine exactly who can see their posts. For members who want to use Facebook to communicate privately, there is the private message system, which has an application that is specifically assigned to it called Messenger.
Facebook Inc. is based in Menlo Park, California, United States. The Facebook site was launched on February 4th, 2004 by Mark Zuckerberg, along with other Harvard students including Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes. The founders had initially limited membership of the site for Harvard students; however, they later expanded it to higher education institutions in the Boston area. Since 2006, anyone over the age of 13 is allowed to become a Facebook user, although variations exist in the minimum age condition, according to local laws in force. The Facebook name also includes souvenir books that list a photo of each student in each promotion in educational institutions in the United States.
