Paragraph on 'Facebook'

Facebook

Facebook is a social networking website for getting connection with friends, family members, and business associates. It is the largest networking site in the world. It was started as a college networking website and has been expanded to include anyone and everyone. It was founded by a Harvard student named Mark Zuckerberg in 2004. It became successful quickly on campus and expanded beyond Harvard. Facebook users create a profile page that shows information about themselves to their friends and others. The choice to include a profile in a network means that everyone within that network can view the profile. The profile typically includes basic Information about the user, his status, his friend list, his profile pictures etc. Users are able to search for friends and acquaintances by e-mail address, school, university, or just by typing in a name or location for search. When people become friends, they are able to see all of each others' profiles including contact information. E-mail notifications let users know when new friends have chosen to add them to their list or when someone has sent a message to them within the system. A popular feature on Facebook is the ability to share photographs uploaded from a phone, camera, or hard drive. As with other private information, users have the option to allow only friends to see their pictures or anyone. There is an unlimited amount of storage available, which is a major advantage of Facebook’s photograph sharing capabilities.
