Getting started with Facebook
Facebook doesn’t take much introducing as one of the most well known social networking sites, but what may be confusing initially is the difference between a Facebook profile, group and page.
Profile: This is for an individual account.
Group: This a space you can create a community.
Pages: This can be for an individual who wishes to create a fan base or for non-human entities such as an organisation, a company, products or campaigns.
To set up an account you will need to go to http://www.facebook.com.
The Facebook Help Center provides information on the basics, troubleshooting as well as a section dedicated to safety.
