Later on, the accessibility of the site was extended to colleges in Boston, Ivy League and Stanford University. And then the site never saw the limit! The access continued to grow and the site is now literally available to be accessed and used by anyone who is literate and an internet connection.
To use the site, users need to register by creating a personal profile and then getting their account signed up. Once you have an account, you can sign in and add friends.

There are interest groups and there are fan pages. You can join what interests you and enjoy information regarding your personal interests while staying back at home. Not only this, you can manage your friends into lists such as close friends, family, acquaintances. This setting helps you organize your information while remaining selective in whatever way you want.

Moreover, you are free to post statuses, pictures, videos or anything you like. It’s all free! What makes anything the most popular is the fact that it comes as a free gift, and so does Facebook!
