The Facebook home page is familiar to everyone. If you are one of the millions of users, the Facebook home page is something you see every day multiple times. The great thing about the main page is that it is customizable to each user. You determine what you see on your home page and what social interactions you engage.
Your home page is your window into all of your social interactions. You decide what you want to see when you launch Facebook. Your Facebook home page has 5 main components: Filters, News Feed, Requests, Suggestions and Highlights.
