An online network that used to be exclusively for college students arranged in networks. Abbreviated FB sometimes. Networks were then extended to high schools and work places. Then users were allowed to create groups amongst themselves. A profile includes pictures of three types: added by the user, posted as the default profile picture (added to a seperate album), or tagged in other user's/groups photos. Birthdate, sexual orientation, relationship status, and location can also be shown. More details can be added in the profile, such as music & TV preferences, interests & activities, work information, and college/high school information and class schedules. Some annoying shit that was omitted from myspace was the height/weight thing (everyone was fucking 8'11 and 350 pounds!), myspace IM, banner ads, the heros section (everyone loved their fucking best friend, no shit we get it), and top friends. It elaborated on myspace by allowing a wall-to-wall view (mini convo), tagged photos, and the comment back feature. Has virtually no spam friend requests wanting you to check out bullshit webcams, unlike other sites. Unlike myspace, Mark Zuckerberg (the creator) does not start out as your friend (a la Tom). Also no crazy layouts and computer slowing shit. Mostly used by college students and high schoolers who plan on going to college. But gay people who don't go to college and dropped out of college and might not even work join, and pull a "No Network" status. Bullshit right thurrr. A stalker's dream because people tend to put better stuff in interests & activities, as well as posting screenames and phone numbers, and people can be tagged in any picture. A great way to keep in touch with people, keep tabs on that certain hot girl who parties a lot, or that hot boy who you happened to catch his name in class and want to add to recognize you exist.
