        Facebook is a world-renowned social networking website that is meant to link up with friends, relatives and business colleagues., Facebook was founded in 2004 by Harvard student Mark Zuckerberg. It spread in campuses like wildfire and expanded beyond Harvard into other Ivy League schools. With the phenomenon growing in popularity, Zuckerberg enlisted two other students, Duston Moskovitz and Chris Hughes, to assist him. Within months, it became a nationwide college networking website. At that time, it was only available to schools, universities, organizations, and companies within English-speaking countries. However, it has expanded to other communities globally to include almost everybody. Facebook users create a profile page that shows to all their friends any information about themselves. The choice to include a profile in a network means that everyone within that network can view the profile.

To keep your inbox from overflowing, you can set up the frequency of alerts, too. There's a simple drop down to select once a day, once a week, and an as-it-happens option that will send you notifications the second Google finds it.”
