Facebook is the first website that millions of users access in their web browser before opening any other websites. We record so many things every day in facebook without caring about Privacy. Some best moments, interesting facts that we came across, favorite foods, special occasions that we enjoyed with friends, announcing that you got a girl friend or a boy friend, getting married and so on.

Its a kind of Public Diary that we write to let our friends and the world know what we enjoy, what we like, what we don’t like and so on.
