Double the amount of users in July of 2009, and one hundred times that of the 5 million users that the site saw in 2002.

When Facebook first began, it was created ONLY for college students, with the intention of being a site for finding “cute guys and girls”.

If a user did not have a .edu email address, they could not join Facebook.

When Facebook went “public” a few years ago, they added a clause in their Terms and Agreements requiring that users be at least 13 years of age…

…however, like many websites, there is no way of knowing the actual age of a user.

As more and more concerns over young users rise, more sites are popping up that aim at younger children.

Yoursphere is the newest not-for-profit site that is aimed at children. And other sites include Myspace and Tagged.

areas of your life at different arms

lengths.

Facebook now allows users to “check-in” using the site or a mobile device in order to let other users pinpoint their exact location.

It also allows them to tag various other users in their posts who may be in the location as well.

In the past, many have been worried about the privacy of having their phone number and address on the internet, but now it’s possible to see where they are at an exact point in time.

Having Facebook is a great way to stay connected and keep in touch with friends and family, pass the time, and keep updated

with social topics.

However, individuals who choose to use Facebook should use caution with what they allow others to see.
