Based on a popular social networking site, the term "facebooking" has emerged as a verb to describe the activity of logging in to Facebook in order to create a profile, share personal information, and meet other members.
Facebook started as an online forum to connect students through networks at schools. It has since been opened up to the population in general. People use Facebook to look up people at their school, see how people know each other, find people in their classes, meet other people, and more often than not, flirt.
Considered one of the new forms of Web socializing, "facebooking" has become so popular that just about any college student you know, is likely to tell you that he or she is a member. In fact, many students check their Facebook accounts more often than they check their e-mail.
