Why do you like facebook?
Is it the ability to reach out to friends who you can't meet with in real life regularly. Or perhaps you're amused by what people post on the social site. Give us your best answer as to why facebook means something to you personally.
That's a tough one. Can tolerate be considered the same as like? I hate to answer a question with another one, but that's what leaps to mind. I guess it's a matter of being connected and trying not to be out of touch with the way things are going. I grew up with some strange notions of what it means to be friends with someone. A friend is someone you can call to bail you out of jail at 3 in the morning. When I look on FaceBook I find it hard to believe anyone knows 350 people who would bail them out of jail at any time. I can only think in the search for a name, AcquittanceBook didn't sound right to some.
I like facebook because it allows me to connect with all of my friends in one central location. Rather than e-mailing each one individually about a party I can send out a facebook invite and my friends can ask questions, comment to each other, say what they plan on bringing (so others don't bring the same thing) and potentially get rides either there or home.
It is also a great way to share pictures of events that we all participate in. One or two of us will take pictures of everybody, put them on facebook for our friends to download at their leisure.
Not to mention that facebook also allows me to connect with friends and relatives that live far away from me.
I actually like some "downtime" on Facebook because it takes me away from my "workaholic" tendencies. It forces me to "play" and check in with friends and family.....I love to see what everyone is up too.......
I like facebook because I can see my family and friends. I have found long lost ones in facebook. Nice site!
Facebook gave me the opportunity to interact with my old classmates ( school & colleges). Thanks to Facebook, I am able to stay in touch with some of my friends with whom I spent happy old times at school and colleges.
Because I can see how fat my ex-girlfriend is getting! LOL just kidding (not really), but for real I go on Facebook to share links to songs with my friends!
Many years ago I was skeptical of joining Facebook but a friend talked me into it. I am very happy I joined. I moved out of my home town of New York about 8 years ago, but face book has allowed me to talk with people that I have not seen or spoke with in years. There are also so many people that I did not speak to after junior high school or high school that I have reconnected with. It is a great thing. And never in a million years while I was growing up did I think that one day these people would be sitting at a computer "liking" a picture. It is just crazy to see how people change.
I joined facebook in 2007. After joining, I seldom logged in to facebook. In 2008, when I found some of my long time searched school friend through facebook, I became fan of facebook and I haven't stopped logging in facebook since then. It keeps me in touch with my friends and family.
I am not really like Facebook, but it is good to got information about family and friend. I know who was sick, getting married, divorce, angry, or writing something stupid. I am just follow and did not gave comment. So it like I am observe people and read what they comment. I just write answer fro friend if the ask me about something important like telephone number, etc. Thanks

Is it worth it to have Facebook Friends, or is it a joke?Do you think most Facebook friends are honest about themselves to you as you write them for longer stretches of time?

This question has been stirring in my mind for a while so I thought I'd ask it here: How should I deal with people from my past who were complete snobs and excluded me back then coming back today and trying to "Friend" me on Facebook. These are individuals from junior high, high school...
