What is Facebook?

Facebook is a social media service that lets you create a page about yourself, an organization or group. You can add friends, write on people’s pages, share photos and videos including live videos.

The ‘Stories’ feature lets you post short videos to your profile and apply overlay and filter effects. These videos only stay on your page for 24 hours then disappear.

You can also subscribe to the pages of other people or organisations, so that you receive updates about them. You can like and comment on each other’s pages. Facebook has additional settings that allow you to moderate these comments (such as keyword blocking) and control if other people tag you. These functions are also available if you manage a Facebook page.
