History of Social Networks
History of Mark Zuckerberg, founded Facebook while studying psychology at Harvard University. A keen computer programmer, Mr Zuckerberg had already developed a number of social-networking websites for fellow students, including Coursematch, which allowed users to view people taking their degree, and Facemash, where you could rate peoples attractiveness. In February 2004 Mr Zuckerberg launched "The facebook", and It became Facebook.com in August 2005 after the address was purchased for $200,000. US high schools could sign up from September 2005, then it began to spread worldwide.
As of September 2006, the network was extended beyond educational institutions to anyone with a registered email address. Yahoo and Google are among companies which have expressed interest in a buy-out, with rumoured figures of around $2bn (£975m). Mr Zuckerberg has so far refused to sell. The sites features have continued to develop during 2007.
Most students are getting addicted in social networks and that which affects their grades Thus, some students instead of concentrating on school works try to multi-task which adds time to the work and less concentration to the work being done.
