Deleting Old Posts from Facebook Profile


A student of Harvard University is a founder of world’s largest social networking website Facebook. At the age of 23 years, Mark Zuckerberg, a keen computer programmer launched “The Facebook.” Around 1200 Harvard students signed up within a day on Feb 2004. Over half of the undergraduate students had a profile after one month.

In 2005, the company purchased domain for $200,000 and dropped “The” from its name. Even Yahoo and Google had desired to buy Facebook, a free social network, for around $2 Billion but Mr. Zuckerberg refused to sell.

Facebook allows users to chat, manage profiles and pages, poke, send gifts to friends, play games, develop own applications, and advertise products.
