    Best answer: A book filled with people's faces.

    Facebook started as a web app for college students to connect with one another. At first, it was only available to students. You had to have a .edu email address to even open an account. In the very early stages, you had to have an Ivy League email address, an email address from Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Brown, Cornell, Penn, Colombia, or Dartmouth. What the idea was based off of was these books that used to circulate the Ivy League schools that had the names, pictures, basic information, and phone numbers of students throughout the Ivy League. Students used those to meet others, mostly for dating. Students used to browse through those books of faces and when they saw a face they liked, someone they were attracted to, they'd call that person and chat them up. That's how Facebook started, as an online version of that, hence the name.

  • Im driving from the west coast of FL (Sarasota) to Defiance, OH. Is there any way to avoid driving through Atlanta, GA?

    Best answer: Take 285- the perimeter. That's what it's for. It doesn't really matter which way you go on it- it's a circle. But there might be less traffic on the side that goes to the west of the city- so you want to look for signs saying "North" or Birmingham. Just stay on 285 until it joins back up... show more

    I’m from East London and in my mid twenties with no kids or partner but I want to live on my own. I am working part time only, I live at family home at the moment but I think it’s time for me to voluntarily leave personally. I was staying because I was waiting till I get a good job after I graduate at uni in a few months but it’s actually not working out for me cos everyday at home it’s trouble and argument with my mum and i can’t carry on living like this. Somebody recommended Section 8 housing to me but idk what that is about. I only know about the priority waiting list. Thanks

  • How come people think that you can go to jail for making prank calls when you have an disability and mental illness?

    So I am frustrated with life and I need something thrilling to do. I prank called my old high school that I graduated and left a voicemail on their office phone.

    So I am frustrated with life and I need something thrilling to do. I prank called my old high school that I graduated and left a voicemail on their office phone. I played the home alone gangster shooting scene and left that as the voicemail. I did that last night and the school went on lockdown earlier today. I did this using a texting and calling app on my old cell phone and so it gave me a phony phone number. I also made 911 prank calls and got resources sent to houses on my street. People told me that they are gonna figure out it is me even if the phone has no service. There is no way they can trace it back to me because the phone has no service but people insists that they can. Why do people think that they can trace this back to me when I used an texting and calling app to make that prank call to the school ? How can they even trace a cell phone that has no service ??

  • How can I secretly buy a swimsuit?

    So I'm 14 and my parents are muslims. My school has a field trip to a waterpark soon and I don't own a bathing suit. My parents won't allow me to get one, nor wear one, because they, being muslims, believe in not showing much skin. They'll probably force me to wear tights and a tshirt, but I just... show more
    So I'm 14 and my parents are muslims. My school has a field trip to a waterpark soon and I don't own a bathing suit. My parents won't allow me to get one, nor wear one, because they, being muslims, believe in not showing much skin. They'll probably force me to wear tights and a tshirt, but I just want to fit in! I have to siblings, and they could buy it for me online from amazon, (they're 18 and 20) but I think if I told them they would have the same reaction as my parents. How can I fit in by getting a swimsuit or just fit in with a more modest swimsuit? Btw they don't allow me to wear shorts either. I've never worn them in my entire life.

    I basically have a long trip and I will have to go to both Luton Airport and Victoria Station in London. But I want to know which is a better place to wait? Which is more comfortable. I will be landing at Luton Airport and then Victoria Station to get to my final destination. But I don't know if I should take the early coach out of Luton Airport to Victoria Station(which means I will spend most of my time waiting at Victoria Station) or get the later coach out of Luton Airport to Victoria Station(which means I will spend most of my time waiting at Luton Airport). By the way my wait will start just after midnight, so my wait will be throughout the early hours of the morning when it is dark. I also have a laptop and a heavy bag with me. I just want your opinions as to where is best to wait out of the two places.
