Want to connect online with family, friends and business associates? Try Facebook – a popular online social networking site.
How’s it work?
With a free account you can share what’s happening in your life through messages, pictures and video. First, create a profile, add friends then post something interesting to your timeline. Your status updates are distributed in real-time to your friend’s newsfeed. You can even download the app and update your status from a smartphone or tablet.
Worried about who sees your stuff? Facebook offers a range of privacy options. Your information, posts and pictures can be visible to everyone, just your friends, friends of your friends or a custom setting that you create. There’s even a setting to remove your profile from public search.
