About

Many people use the Internet because of Facebook. For some people, it’s the only source for accessing the Internet or news. One of the few most popular apps for communicating with friends and family. 

It all started with college students who created a platform for communicating between students and professors. 


Profile

Having an account on Facebook isn’t difficult. You’ll need an e-mail address, which can be used only for one profile. Besides e-mail, you have to give them some personal information. Personal information like your first and last name, date of birth, the place where you live etc. It’s not necessary to fill all of your private information, but the first and last name are required. Also, you can always use your nickname if you want to hide. 😇  If you choose to show your friends when it’s your birthday, they will get information and send you good wishes or presents. 😁 All the other information you can show others or hide. 

After adding your personal information, pick out profile picture. It should be a picture with your face on it, that way it’s easy for people to recognize you. The cover picture is important because it’s the biggest picture that can be seen on profile. Sometimes users tend to post, as cover, a picture of nature or with their friends and family. 


Friends

Then you will start searching for your friends and send them a “friend request”. For gaining more friends, sync Facebook profile with e-mail or contacts from the phone menu. Contact of yours, who have Facebook, will automatically know you have a profile. You can choose whether to accept or delete friend request. For example, imagine the teacher sends you a friend request and you don’t want to be friends on Facebook. Leave that request without accepting it or click Delete. 


Posts

Facebook offers many options for expressing yourself. Write a status. Say something about your feelings today. What are you doing at the moment? Even inform your Facebook friends of something important. Start sharing your thoughts with everyone or a couple of specific people. Besides having a status on Facebook, posting pictures, videos, is interesting. Gone on vacation and you want your friends to see how you were enjoying? Create an album, post a couple of pictures and videos. Even without creating an album you can post some pictures, but the album keeps them organized. 

TIP: don’t post too many pictures at the same time, people don’t want to watch something that takes too much time.


Timeline

The timeline is the place where your memories are organized, just below profile and cover picture. Basically, there’s everything you have posted yet. When you scroll down, after profile and cover picture, your personal information will appear. Further, the latest photos you are tagged in and friends list. Then, swipe up a bit more your post will load chronically from the newest to the oldest.

You can arrange the look of the timeline, hide or delete some post, add events that happened years ago.


News Feed

Appear in someone’s News Feed is possible when you are posting. That way you’ll be able to see what is going on. Find events near you, invite friends to attend with you. Stay up-to-date by refreshing news feed and scrolling. At first, Facebook had only “likes” if you find the particular post interesting. Now, with new updates, there are “reactions”. Taping thumb up once means “like” but holding a little bit you’ll get emojis. Choose and click on one of the emoji, and you’ve sent your opinion by emoji. You can change your mind and react differently. Notification will pop up when friends have certain activity on your profile.

TIP: Please don’t like your own photos. When you post them, it means you like them already.


Messages

A long time ago, the Facebook app had all in one chat and previously described app, now it’s separated. But desktop version is still on the same web page. Facebook chat is a whole new application called Messenger. When you click the button for sending messages, instantly Messenger will open and you can chat.


Facebook Story and Live video

Take a picture and immediately upload on Facebook Story or take it with the Facebook camera. It’s similar to InstaStory, lasts for 24 hours. There are face filters and even beauty filters. Use them and make a Facebook story to remember despite the fact that disappears after 24 hours.

Live video last more than 24 hours. Once you stop recording, it stays on your profile as much as you want. Friends can comment and like while you’re streaming. 


Games

The first thing we used Facebook for, was playing games. Games used to be so popular, especially among kids. Invite friends to play games with you or play with people from all over the world.


Page

Promoting your business is easy on Facebook. Make a page about your product or services and advertise. Go In the upper right corner and switching between private profile and public page.


Privacy

When you post you can choose whether it will be public, private (only you), or custom. 

  • Public – everyone can see it, even you aren’t Facebook friends
  • Private – only you see it, 
  • Custom – manage the list of friends who can see that post. Form a group of colleagues, family, best friends and show to one group. Another great thing is that you can choose one particular friend/group to hide a post from.

Technology has done some wonderful things for us, but the worst side effect is that you cannot escape from offensive content. What is the best way to do? Report it. If you are not the only one who finds it disturbing or offensive that profile/content will be deleted soon. 

Have you ever felt like the one profile is fake? It doesn’t have real pictures or it contains pictures from other people, and you feel someone is spying on you. Delete that person from the friend list. No one has to see that or approve, it’s your free will. Another thing to do is report or block profile. Blocking profile means that person won’t see anything you post or even be Facebook friends with you. He can’t send you friend request anymore. Facebook gives you permission to do a variety of things, but use it wisely! 

Nevertheless, be careful who you accept for a friend. If you don’t know the person, it’s better not to be friends than have some troubles with private information or with spamming messages.


Conclusion

Why is Facebook soooo popular? We tried to explain. It’s the only popular app which is used for

  • chatting,
  • posting pictures/videos, 
  • finding friends, 
  • creating events,
  • reading news,
  • advertising,
  • all in all, be up-to-date and much more.
