What Is Facebook?


Facebook is a social network which was founded in 2004. Users can create profiles with photos, lists of personal interests, contact information and other personal information.

Communicating with friends and other users can be done through private or public messages or a chat feature. Users can also create and join interest groups and "like pages" (formerly called "fan pages" until April 19, 2010), some of which are maintained by organizations as a means of advertising.
