Facebook is a social website that allows its members to communicate with friends and family through messages, pictures, and videos. Facebook also allows its users to write on each others' "walls." A Facebook wall is a page that contains comments or messages from friends and family. If you don't want other people to write on your Facebook wall, you can block them from doing so by adjusting your privacy settings.
