About the Class

Facebook is a social networking website launched on February 4, 2004 that allows users to connect and keep up with their friends circle. They can upload and share photos, videos, events and updates. The website grew when it opened itself to third party developers who have developed many sticky applications for Facebook. Some even call Facebook, the new Internet. Nellie, along with other Facebook users takes you on a guided tour of Facebook and how to use it for diverse purposes like business, teaching and learning.
