What is everyone's idea on the topics? Chuli902 (talk) 23:09, 23 March 2012 (UTC)

How about "Instagram"? I searched it, it has less of info, so its easier for us to fill it in. Chuli902 (talk) 23:17, 23 March 2012 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Echan3 (talkcontribs) - she means this page -Eva Echan3 (talk) 23:25, 23 March 2012 (UTC)

I don't mind anything, we just need a topic ASAP, so we can finish this assignment on time. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Chuli902 (talkcontribs) 23:30, 23 March 2012 (UTC)

There are 5 sections on the page now:[edit]

  • Financials -- TAKEN
  • Notes

(these can be editted & research more on each section)

We can ADD new sections:[edit]

  • facebook IPO
  • Lawsuit of yahoo against facebook -- TAKEN
  • China censored facebook -- TAKEN



  • When editing the article in the sandbox, REMEMBER to describe the changes you made in the “edit summary” box at the bottom of the page*****
  • Watch the short “how to” video called “Basic Editing: Citing Sources” found at the bottom of the Resources page
  • Remember, each substantive edit will most likely require references
  • Go to the “Resources” Tab on the class page and review Wiki Syntax (there are a number of handouts you can download for reference)
  • Go to your article, and take a screenshot of the section you will be editing
  • Copy and paste the section you will be editing into the designated sandbox. �(See example -- User:lolcat999/sandbox)

I will do facemash and facebook IPO. But what is IPO mean guys? (talk) 03:18, 26 March 2012 (UTC)

Sorry I forgot to log in, the above message was me Chuli902 (talk) 03:20, 26 March 2012 (UTC)

So when I looked up IPO, it stands for initial public offering (IPO)... however try searching Facebook IPO and some articles will come up and you can read them... does that kind of help? sorry.. wasn't really sure myself. - Eva Echan3 (talk) 14:48, 26 March 2012 (UTC)

Alright, I will try. This whole thing is still confusing! And how come the other girl did not reply at all? Is she okay? Chuli902 (talk) 16:44, 26 March 2012 (UTC)

Odia, can you explain what you mean by facebook IPO and what you are looking for in that section? Chuli902 (talk) 17:36, 26 March 2012 (UTC)

Facebook is about to sell shares for the first time. That's what i mean by IPO.Odia.edeawe (talk) 00:36, 27 March 2012 (UTC)

I actually have no idea where our other member is... I did inform her.. but no replies back Echan3 (talk) 05:19, 27 March 2012 (UTC)

Can we be done today, so Eva can prepare everything and email the things we need to submit to our TA before our tutorial. Eva, please remember to read the instructions for submiting before you do. And arent we supposed to write "WIKIPEDIA EDUCATION PROJECT" or something like that on the page?Odia.edeawe (talk) 14:29, 28 March 2012 (UTC)

Hey guys, for the facemash section, I did some research on it and summarize the into my own words. It is basically about how facemash started it. Chuli902 (talk) 18:54, 28 March 2012 (UTC)

Julie aren't you going to make a new section. Didn't you pick the facebook IPO Odia.edeawe (talk) 19:01, 28 March 2012 (UTC) Julie but you arent supposed to summarise it. you are supposed to edit it and add info not summarise it. I am sorry but I had to copy the old info back because the information contained is really usefulOdia.edeawe (talk) 19:33, 28 March 2012 (UTC)

Hey guys, sorry I havent posted on here yet. But I'm confused. What section should I work on right now? Because above it says certain ones are taken but you guys are saying that you are covering other areas too. What two things are left for me to work on? Angelitsiou (talk) 19:43, 28 March 2012 (UTC)

Actually it looks like the Facebook and Notes section need some work. So I'll start editing those sections. What time do we have to have everything finished by tonight? Angelitsiou (talk) 19:45, 28 March 2012 (UTC)

Yeah I am doing the IPO section as well, I am still working on it. I just post the facemash first. And I did not summarize the original text. I got info online and edit them into the paragraph that I just post... so I guess I will just put my info in the original text and edit them all together then Chuli902 (talk) 19:52, 28 March 2012 (UTC)

I just added a little blurb to the Facebook section about mobile phone use. I will add more information after 9pm because I have to work 5-9pm tonight. Angelitsiou (talk) 20:32, 28 March 2012 (UTC)

I added a new section for Facebook's IPO. Can everyone take a look at it and see if it is okay. I moved two days ago, so I don't have internet at home yet, so please feel free to edit again or anything. Since I will not be able to go online and check it later. Thanks guys! Keep up the good work. Hope I did not let you guys down! Chuli902 (talk) 20:58, 28 March 2012 (UTC)

Alright! So I added the last section, editted some parts, added some wiki-link parts and also added the top banner. I am almost done the document to send to Rachel and will send you guys a copy before I send it to her. Echan3 (talk) 23:17, 28 March 2012 (UTC)

So its fine. I think you can send it Odia.edeawe (talk) 23:52, 28 March 2012 (UTC) alright! Echan3 (talk) 00:47, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

Eva please remember to copy and paste to whole article to the main pageOdia.edeawe (talk) 01:24, 29 March 2012 (UTC)
