How was Facebook named ? The name „Facebook‟ origins from the colloquial name (informal name) for the book given to students at the start of the academic year by some university administrations in the United States to help students get to know each other.
Mark Zuckerberg was inspired to make Facebook from the incident of Facemash.
Facemash Facemash, the Facebook‟s predecessor opened on October 28, 2003. Facemash "used photos from the online facebooks of nine Houses, placing two next to each other at a time and asking users to choose the hotter person". Mark Zuckerberg hacked into Harvard‟s security network and copied the student ID images for Facemash website.

[ thefacebook.com ] Just six days after the launch of the site, three Harvard University seniors, Cameron Winklevoss, Tyler Winklevoss, and Divya Narendra, accused Zuckerberg of intentionally misleading them into believing that he would help them build a social network called HarvardConnection.com, but he used their idea instead to build a competing product.

If you do not want someone to tag you in their posts, we encourage you to reach out to them and give them that feedback. If that does not work, you can block them. This will prevent them from tagging you going forward.
Pages Facebook Pages are public pages. Companies use Pages to share information about their products. Celebrities use Pages to talk about their latest projects. Communities use pages to discuss topics of interest, everything from baseball to the opera. Because Pages are public, information you share with a Page is public information.

When you "like" a Page, you create a connection to that Page to your profile and your friends may see it in their News Feeds.
