Things you should know about Facebook

Facebook, the social networking platform which connects the world, was launched on February4, 2004, by Mark Zuckerberg, along with fellow Harvard College students and roommates Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes.

Initially the founders had allowed the facebook membership to only Harvard students and they expanded in the Boston to the higher education institutions and so on in various places which became the best social networking website in the world.

The average user spends about 40 minutes on facebook a day. Some people spend more than 3-4 hours a day which in medical terms for them is FAD( Facebook Addiction Disorder) indicator of it can be adding a stranger as a friend to increase the number of friend counts.

Do you know that you can’t block the founder of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg from your logged in profile? if you go to his page and if you attempt to do it so then a popup springs up stating “This profile can’t be blocked for now” Hehe…that’s really nice one, how and why would the founder get blocked from his own platform?

While posting a message on facebook wall, you would want only specific group or a person to see the post, if so then simply clicking on the filter option of ‘Public’ which opens saying ‘who should see this’ you can select specific person or group before clicking on ‘Post’ button.




On your profile wall, if you are constantly annoyed to see a weird post(s) from anyone in specific or a page and you definitely would not want to see it anymore then just click on the right side arrow of the post where you can hide the post, un-follow the person who posted it or you can hide all the posts of that particular page or group.
