If you are just getting started with Facebook, learn all about creating a page, using the Facebook login feature, and more.
Once you create your account, you'll want to spend a little time becoming familiar with the different parts of Facebook, including the homepage and the Timeline.
The homepage appears whenever you sign in to Facebook. The homepage displays your News Feed, which shows the things your friends have shared on Facebook. The homepage also allows you to navigate to other parts of Facebook, such as your Timeline.
Click the buttons in the interactive below to become more familiar with the homepage.
Here, you'll be notified about recent activity on Facebook, including friend requests, messages, and notifications.
You can click your name to view and edit your Timeline.
You can use the search bar to search for friends, Facebook Pages, Apps, and more.
You'll use the Publisher to share things on Facebook. It's easy to share a status update, photos, links, and more. The information you share in the Publisher will be posted on your News feed and Timeline, as well as on your friends' News Feeds.
Here, you can navigate to other parts of Facebook, including your upcoming events, photos, groups, and apps.
The News Feed is a stream of posts and updates from your friends and the Facebook Pages you follow.
This feature shows you what other people are posting about on Facebook. Just click a story to see more posts about it.

You can click here to search for friends who already use Facebook.
The Timeline (also called your profile page) is where you'll share information about yourself. Whenever you post an update, it appears on your Timeline. Your friends can also share posts on your Timeline.
Click the buttons in the interactive below to become more familiar with your Timeline.
Your cover photo is a large picture that is only visible on your Timeline. A cover photo doesn't have to be a picture of you. Instead, you might choose something that expresses your personality or interests.
Your profile picture represents you across Facebook. This is the picture your friends will see when you share and comment on Facebook.
Basic information you've shared about yourself will appear here.
Just like on the homepage, you'll use the Publisher to share things on Facebook. It's easy to share a status update, photos, links, and more. The information you share in the Publisher will be posted here and on your friends' News Feeds.
The Timeline includes your posts and activity, as well as things that your friends have posted on your Timeline.
From here, you can view and edit your profile information. This is where you'll share details about your work history, relationships, interests, and more.
