Facebook Groups-Overview

Facebook was first created by Harvard student Mark Zuckerberg in 2004, as an online directory for Harvard Students. Today Facebook has grown in unbelievable proportions, hosting hundreds of millions of users. Facebook was created by a University student, for University students. It should be no suprise that several AUC related groups have been started on facebook. From groups advertising organizations on campus to groups that protest against injustice and unfavorable topics, and the most recent group to date "Overheard at AUC", which pretty much bands Aucians of all sorts of majors and years toghther to discuss those funny and awkward moments that happened on campus.

Facebook has had a strong impact on universities since it's first creation a few years ago, by a university student at that. Among the things that will be discussed-
