Ads can be posted in either available or wanted format. The market place is available for all Facebook users and is currently free.

Status Updates Facebook has a micro-blogging feature called "status updates" (also referred to simply as "status") which allows users to post messages for all their friends to read. In turn, friends can respond with their own comments, and also press the "Like" button to show that they enjoyed reading it. A user's most recent status update appears at the top of their profile, and is also noted in the "Recently updated" section of a user's friend list. Status updates Like button

When setting up an event the user can choose to allow friends to upload photos or videos.
Networks and groups Facebook allows different networks and groups to which many users can join. It also allows privacy settings on basis of networks.
