    WHERE OR WHICH?? Very Confused

    My friend said:" I set up a facebook where i can post pictures,events...

    Is this sentence correct? Can I use "Which" instead of "Where", Why should use "Where"?

    I know "a place where we live"= "a place in which we live."

    BUT I do not know that these sentences which is right?

    A place where we can find interest or A place which we can find interset?

    Very confused ,Please help, thanks!!!

    As you have used in one example, you would have to replace 'where' with 'in which'.
    This is the house where I live.
    This is the house in which I live.
    This is the house which I live in.

    This is website where I can post pictures.
    This is a website on which I can post pictures.
    This is a website which I can post pictures on.

    Here is a place where we can find interesting things.
    Here is a place at/in which we can find interesting things.
    (If it's a place you don't go into - like a beach or a mountain, use "at".
    If it's a place you do go into, like a building, a cinema, a museum ... you can use 'in').

    I can attach pictures to my Facebook account. -- I created a facebook account to which I can attach files.
    I created a facebook account and I can attach files there -- I created a facebook account where I can attach files.

    A place where we can find interest = A place at which we can find internet
