n my previous post, i have explain how to change the localhost in windows operating systems.  This post is especially for ubuntu users.

Requirements:
apache server should be installed.

    * Open the Terminal
    * type this command and press enter

    sudo gedit /etc/hosts

hosts will be opened in notepad.
you can find this line :

    127.0.0.1    localhost.localdomain    localhost


Just change the localhost to www.facebook.com
Restart the apache server.
Don't you know how to restart the server. nothing to worry just enter the following command in terminal:

    sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart


if you enter "www.facebook.com",then you will get this page in your browser.
