Many people today think of Facebook as that "fairly new" social networking site used to keep in touch with friends. However, the REAL FACEBOOK has been around for many, many years--long before the internet was invented. It was extremely popular in schools back in the day. Facebook was mostly used when the teacher wasn't looking and was especially popular on the bus going to or from school. If someone kept messing with you, and you got riled, it was time for FACEBOOK! The enclosed, 3 second video link, shows exactly how FACEBOOK worked:

As you can see, the "old time" Facebook was a lot different from the Facebook on the internet today. However, it was extremely popular with school kids in the past. In those days, if someone became mad at another, that meant "Facebook" was probably on the way.

Yeah boy...I was one of those dropping Facebook on dweebs in school. They messed with me and Facebook took that smile off their face--AND QUICKLY--I miss those good old days! That school Facebook was sure more fun for me than the kind of Facebook we have now.

Back in the day at my school we called it Jap Slapped, not Facebook, but it was the same thing.
