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.
Has a usage as a verb, "to facebook" can be the following:
a.) to post a wall comment
b.) to add as a friend on facebook
c.) To go to someone's profile, look at all their pictures and notice how fucking hot they are, but don't add them. Instead, continue to visit their site and see what they do and if they're still single or not.
d.) message someone on facebook
e.) To veg out bored to death on facebook.

An online network open to college students at certain universities. Students make up their own profiles which include a picture, name, birthdate, interests, and classes. They can then search for other students at their university or another university that has the facebook. One can add people they know or random people as their "friends."
Girl: Last night I didn't get any work done because I was looking at facebook all night!
Girl 1: I found that really hot guy from our history class on facebook last night!
Girl 2: Really?!
Girl 1: Yeah! His name is insert name here, he's in insert classes here, he's single and is looking for a relationship, friendship, dating, random play, or anything he can get! (options under relationship status and what one is looking for)
WARNING: The new addictive drug that has devastatingly hit most colleges, universities, and highschools. The drug causes lasting effects: procrastination, swollen fingers, dropped grades, irritation of the eyes, increased need to add more friends to your friends list, and skipped classes. Be cautious, some think they are immune to the effects of facebook, until they try it and by then its too late. Protect Yourselves.

A much cleaner, more private alternative to MySpace.
Wow, Facebook doesn't lag!
Facebook is like prison, you write on walls and poke random people.
A place that used to be for only people in college, and then only college and high school, and now its lame and equally as creepy as myspace because its open to anyone and everyone, and they have something called the "news feed" where you learn about dumb shit that no one really cares about. (Basically an easy way to stalk people.)
Facebooker 1: Hey I was on facebook today and after I read the news feed I learned that megan's relationship is now complicated and jen just wrote on cindys wall!
Facebooker 2: wow. I really didn't need to know all that.
