Facebook is a popular social networking website intended to connect friends, family and business associates. It is the largest of the networking sites. It began as a college networking website and has expanded to include anyone and everyone. Facebook was founded in 2004 by Harvard student Mark Zuckerberg and was originally called Facebook. Facebook users create a profile page that shows their friends and networks information about themselves. The choice to include a profile in a network means that everyone within that network can view the profile. The profile typically includes the following information: Status, Friends, and Friends in Other Networks, Photos, Notes, Groups, and the Wall. Users are able to search for friends and acquaintances by e-mail address, school, university, or just by typing in a name or location for search. When people become friends, they are able to see all of each other’s profiles including contact information. E-mail notifications let users know when new friends have chosen to add them to their list or when someone has sent a message to them within the system. A popular feature on Facebook is the ability to share photographs uploaded from a phone, camera, or hard drive. As with other private information, users have the option to allow only friends to see their pictures or anyone. There is an unlimited amount of storage available, which is a major advantage of Facebook’s photograph-sharing capabilities. Facebook is not only entertaining but also educative. It helps us to know the news and views of the current world. Facebook has some demerits too. Many young boys and girls become addicted and neglect their studies. Sometimes, false and baseless news spread on Facebook.  Despite some demerits, Facebook plays a great role in the communication of the modern era.
