Ah, Facebook, the procrastinator’s best friend. Those of you familiar with social media will no doubt be very aware of the social media juggernaut that is Facebook.

Launched back on the 4th of February 2004, under the name of "TheFacebook" Mark Zuckerberg’s brainchild didn’t really begin to take off until 2007/2008. Initially, Facebook was conceived as a site to help friends and family members stay in touch, chat, and socialize.
