Overview of Facebook

According to Facebook.com, the company's mission is "to give people the power to share and make the world more open and connected." Facebook is the largest social network, with over 800 million users as of December 2011.

Facebook allows users to share information at a high capacity in various formats, including interests, contact information, blog postings, photos, videos, documents, links, and more. Users can communicate with Facebook friends and users publicly or privately, or use a chat feature. Users may join networks organized by school, college, or workplace and create their own "like" pages and interest groups.

Those with Facebook accounts can add friends, join interest groups, and "like" a page which enables them to interact with other users and receive notifications when new content has been added by a friend or a page. To create a "like" page or interest group, users must have a personal or business Facebook account. For more information on business accounts, visit the Facebook Help Center and click “Business Accounts.”

Creating an account is free. To create an account, go to http://facebook.com and type your full name, email address, desired password, gender, and date of birth where it says "Sign Up." After you click the "Sign Up" button, you will receive a confirmation email from Facebook at the email address you provided. Clicking on the confirmation link will complete the sign up process.
