Applications – No, these aren’t dull forms to fill out. When you add these fun interactive details/objects to your profile, you communicate your style, personality, and interests to friends in your network.
Discussion Board – This is an area where a Page’s fans can engage in topic-based dialogue. Usually the topics are questions posed by the Page admin to spark conversation and interaction.
Gifts & Games – Keep these to your personal page – or not a all
Inbox – Much like your email inbox, this is where you can send and receive messages that require a little more privacy than you’d get from a wall post. Inbox messages can only be seen by the sender and the recipient.
Top News Feed – is the default feed that is selected in all Facebook profiles. Top news feeds are derived from the most recent feeds based on the popularity of the share among your friends. To get on to the top news feed, your share must either get some good number of likes or comments from your friends.
Most Recent Feed . This feed fetches the latest feeds that come your way from your friends. Think of it as a tickertape of your activities on Facebook. When your friends visit your profile, they will be able to see what you’ve been up to, or what’s coming up in your life.
Pages – Created by companies, organizations, musicians, politicians, etc. Facebook members can become fans of a Page to communicate support for the group, company, etc, and to interact with other members who share their sentiments.
Poke – NEVER do this.
Profile – Your personal space on Facebook. This is where your friends can contact you, leave messages, view and interact with your applications.
Status – How are you feeling? What are you doing? Let your friends in on your activities and whereabouts by updating your profile status.
Tag – Whenever you or a friend posts a photo to Facebook, you have the option of “tagging” – identifying – the people you know in the photo, be it yourself, or someone in your immediate group of Facebook friends.
Wall – Your wall where your friends leave you messages (your other friends can read these messages too). To send or receive a more private message, use your Inbox.
