Creating Rome Facebook

Facebook is an amazing website. Not only for what it offers, but by how many people use it. The number of people on Facebook is staggering: 600 million people. In fact, if Facebook was a country, it would be the third largest country in the world behind only China and India. Mark Zuckerberg, the creator of Facebook, has unbelievable vision to create something like this, and to take it to the heights it has soared. You see Facebook everywhere and it seems this is something that is not going away. I find it interesting and intriguing to take certain things and turn them into school projects. This is one of those examples. Let's take the idea of Facebook and turn it into something we can use with ancient Rome. Specifically, we will be using the "profile page" feature of Facebook. For us, we will be selecting topics of ancient Rome and making out own "Profile Page." Very important that you realize you will not actually be on Facebook, but instead, using a piece of paper. Ideally, we could all be on Facebook creating real profile pages of Rome, but that just isn't the way things work. This post is informational only, but I have attached the requirements of the project for easy viewing. On the right side, you will see a section called "Ancient Rome Websites." Use those to help you research on the Internet. Good Luck Facebook-ing Rome!
