Facebook is a website for people from all around the world to socialize. It was made in February 2004. It is a place where anyone can be a friend with anyone. One can send friend requests and messages to strangers; but the person has a choice of refusing the request or accepting it. The users can join networks such as school, workplace, where you live and more. This website has age limit to become a user; one has to be age of 13 or older. BUT! Most “young” users lie about their ages and join because Facebook don’t have precise process of joining the website.
The founder of Facebook was Mark Zuckerberg, and his friends, Eduardo Saverin, Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes. First the user limit started with Harvard students. Then, it was expanded to students in the Standford University, Boston area, and the Ivy League. Then later, it expanded to any students in high school and university. In the end, it expanded to anyone who is 13 or over.
Some countries such as China, Iran, Vietnam and Pakistan, have blocked Facebook. It is banned in a lot of working places because it takes a lot of time from employees.
This website is one of the most popular sites; first of all, because it has innumerable users. Once you join it, you cannot get out of it. Facebook is so addictive that it distracts one from concentrating. Most students take time going on facebook if they have mac or computer logged on in front of them. One can deactivate their account, but if you log in again, it activates your account right away. Facebook is a fun and harmful place at the same time; it is a place to socialize with friends, but on the other hand, it takes a lot of time from us.
