When it comes to social networking, it's wise to put your best face forward. Online directory Facebook began by connecting students through social networks at schools, but has since opened its service to the general public. Users post photos and information about themselves through online profiles. The site was launched in 2004 by undergraduates at Harvard, led by Mark Zuckerberg, as an online version of the Harvard Facebook. (The name comes from books of freshmen's faces, majors, and hometowns that are distributed to incoming students.) Microsoft has a deal to be the exclusive provider of advertising to Facebook. Investors include Paypal co-founder Peter Thiel and Accel Partners. [Description from Hoover's]

The Audience Also Likes section of a site's profile shows other sites that the audience is likely to visit, and the affinity indicates how much more likely than average. For example, if the profile for wsj.com listed barrons.com with an affinity of 10x, a randomly chosen visitor to wsj.com is ten times likelier to visit barrons.com than the average internet user.
