Facebook is a social networking website that is operated and privately owned by Facebook,
Inc. Users can add friends and send them messages, and update their personal profiles to notify
friends about themselves. Additionally, users can join networks organized by city, workplace,
school, and region.
Setting Up Your Personalized Facebook Profile
Once you are registered on the site (www.facebook.com), you will want to set up your profile. This is the page
that your friends will see. It lists all your information such as hobbies, any personal
information that you want displayed to friends, and information about you. You can list your
contact information and any websites you may be affiliated with as well.
When you are setting up your interests, keep in mind that you can search for new friends by
common interests. You can also join groups where people with common interests can readily find
each other, and share thoughts and comments.
