How to use this guide There are many different science curricula in use around the world, and it's impossible to detail how a large website like this (with over 450 long articles) maps to all of them.

After years spent filling social networks like Facebook and Twitter with the minutiae of our lives, we’ve left permanent, heavily curated trails of personal data in our wake—over 1.2 billion of them on Facebook alone, judging by its user count. Facebook, at least, may be taking that step soon.
