About Facebook's Quizzes
The free quizzes found on Facebook are created by and can only be taken by registered users. They are on an array of topics and in a wide variety of languages. Once you take one, you can choose which friends you wish to compete against or just go straight to your results. You can also choose whether you want your results posted on your profile and whether you want you friends who have taken the same quiz to be notified of your results.
Once your friends take the same quiz, you can be notified of their results and find out who received the better score.

How to Find Quizzes on Facebook
If you are new to Facebook and haven't had any friends send you a quiz to take, you can always go directly to the application to find one you like. From here, you can choose from quizzes that are either top rated or most popular. You can take a gander as to what quizzes were just recently created today or this week. A few things you need to know:
- Not all of the quiz applications you may find on Facebook were developed by the social network. There will be a note on the application stating if the app was developed by Facebook or not.
- Not all of the quizzes make sense, score correctly or are even accurate. Remember, everyday people make up these quizzes and some of the answers may be wrong.
- They can be addictive. Once you take one, you will want to take another and another.
- All of your profile information, including your friends and other information is accessed when taking a quiz.

A Final Note About Facebook Quizzes
It doesn't matter if it's Facebook quizzes you are creating and taking or another quiz site's, there are a few things you should heed. For starters, read all of the small print. You don't want to give out personal information on a website that is accessible by everyone else. If you are writing a quiz, make sure there is no objectionable or illegal information. On the other hand, if you are taking a quiz and find some of this information, you need to report it to the site's webmaster.
