I’ve been slightly geeky damaged in the last few weeks that I (almost) didn’t see the notice (invitation) from my former, former , former supervisor from UCSD, to join the FaceBook. Also, so geeky-retarded I found out that (almost) everyone (for me relevant) is there. Silly me, now I got hooked and I’m for hours web-witching, editting profile, groups, adding great, useful and funny applications, everything is there at one place. I love, love, love FaceBook. I am so into this online social community, that my mood right now is ‘happy as a child with the ice-cream’. Few facts on this online community you should know:
Facebook is a social utility that connects people with friends and others who work, study and live around them. People use Facebook to keep up with friends, upload an unlimited number of photos, share links and videos, and learn more about the people they meet.
Anyone can join Facebook
All that’s needed to join Facebook is a valid email address. To connect with coworkers or classmates, use your school or work email address to register. Once you register, join a regional network to connect with the people in your area.
Discover the people around you
Facebook is made up of many networks, each based around a company, region, or school. Join the networks that reflect your real-life communities to learn more about the people who work, live, or study around you.
Facebook’s Platform enables anyone, anywhere, to build complete applications that you can choose to use. The possibilities are endless. Define your experience on Facebook by choosing applications that are useful and relevant to your world.
