Simple English

[[File:|thumb|300px|The Facebook logo]] Facebook is a social networking website that is privately owned by Facebook, Inc.[1]. It started on February 4, 2004. As of July 2010, it has more than 500 million active users.[2] According to Facebook, an "active user" is a user who has visited the website in the last 30 days. It was made by Mark Zuckerberg. It is the world's largest social networking website.

The website is privately owned and operated by Facebook, Inc. Since September 2006, anyone who is 13 years old and older can become a Facebook user. Every user has a wall, which is a private profile page. When accessing a wall it is possible to change information and interests about the user, post comments and chat to other users. They can send messages, look at their friends' pictures, and interact online. People on Facebook can interact through private messages, "Wall" messages, comments, or chat. Wall messages are messages that appear on someone's profile page. Users can get the accounts temporarily blocked or permanently disabled by Facebook if they break the site's rules.

Facebook is a site that lets people express what they think or feel. Facebook also has pages that are created by users that allow them to join and invite friends.

Facebook was created so that Harvard college students could get to know each other. Now Facebook is a site that is available for everyone and is free and simple to use.

In April 2008, it moved past MySpace to become the biggest social networking website in the world.[3]

In 2010, a video about Facebook's history and its creator was released. It was called The Social Network.

Controversy

Some people think Facebook is a bad site, because it makes personal information very easy to find for everyone, although they have made countless efforts to fix this.
