Welcome on facebook.com!

I guess both can be used (correct me if I am wrong).

However, I don't know when it's better to use the first and where the second sentence?

This question is too basic; it can be definitively and permanently answered by a single link to a standard internet reference source designed specifically to find that type of information.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Ok. You're wrong so I'll correct you. "Welcome on facebook.com!" cannot be used. – Urbycoz Aug 24 '12 at 9:18
Why? "Welcome on this page" is right. So why not Welcome on facebook.com.? "facebook.com" can be substituted with the word "page" and the meaning is the same. – Derfder Aug 24 '12 at 9:22
E.g. Welcome in facebook.com is correct to, but in the meaning of a corporation, I mean if you get a job in the facebook.com company. The people can invite you with "Welcome in facebook.com!" Right? – Derfder Aug 24 '12 at 9:24
No, they'd still say "welcome to". – RegDwigнt Aug 24 '12 at 9:34
@ Derfder ~ Would you say "welcome to my house" or "welcome in my house"? A website, a page, your house, and your workplace are all destinations that people go 'to'. – Roaring Fish Aug 24 '12 at 10:27

Definitively the correct form is "Welcome to facebook.com!".
