The wall feature on Facebook lets you leave messages for your friends. When you post comments, pictures or videos on someone's Facebook wall, those items are visible to your friend and anyone else who has access to his wall. Posting to a friend's wall is a great way to wish him a happy birthday, pass along a quick message or reminder, or just to wish him good luck at an upcoming event.
