Harvard University campus in the US in 2004, when student, Mark

well-connected online as they were in real life. Facebook quickly
filtered out to other Ivy League universities in the US before spreading across the world.

One of the most fun ways to share online,
in both Twitter and Facebook, is to share
your favorite music and images. We’ve talked
about sharing your own photos on Facebook,
but how about treating your online friends to
some of the unique items you run across
elsewhere on the Web.
To share the video on Facebook, click the Facebook button;
a window appears and offers you two ways to share:
To post the video to your Facebook profile page, type your
message in the text box and click the Share button.The
window closes, and the link and message are posted
to your Facebook Profile page.
If you’ve already set up a Facebook account, you can sign
in to TripAdvisor using your Facebook login details.This
method is safe — and the easiest way to join. To join
via Facebook Connect (a service that allows you to
keep your login info and passwords to a minimum),
click the Sign In with Facebook button.
Once you get involved on Facebook, you’ll see your friends linking to
posts and news stories. Doing a blog post is so much more personal because each one is filled with your opinions and your information.
You arrive at the Edit User Profile page and face a long
list of questions. Filling in this information is just as
involved as completing your Facebook profile. But just
like on Facebook, you can fill in as much or as little
information as you wish. You can add a lot of data, so
you might want to start with a small amount and add the
rest when you have the time.
