February 18, 2008: Facebook
Facebook is a social utility — increasingly used by business people — 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. Once you register, you can join a regional network to connect with the people in your area.
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.
A unique aspect of Facebook compared to other social-networking sites is that the platform enables anyone, anywhere, to build complete applications that you can choose to use. You can define your experience on Facebook by choosing applications that are useful and relevant to your world.
No cost to job-seekers.
