    How do you define Facebook?

    Define it according to its content, quality of posts, what you observe with what people do, etc.

    Facebook is a (tool) used for a myriad of purposes based upon the person or company using it. Most people use it as a "one-stop" place to stay in contact with friends and family to update them with what is going on in their life. The goal is to "connect" with others.
    Businesses, authors, and entertainers use it to promote or market themselves. This why so many businesses say "Like us on Facebook". Each time you "Like" something it appears on your wall for all of your "friends" to see. Social media marketing is big!
    Some people have used it to find dates. Others have used it to bully people or spread rumors. A lot of people use it to (share) articles, jokes, Youtube videos, and other things they come across. Facebook is whatever the (user) decides to make of it.

    Facebook is a popular free social networking website that allows registered users to create profiles, upload photos and video, send messages.

    I would say: Facebook is Just "Waste of Time"

      A place to advertise oneself, right? May not be "that" Waste of Time! Hehe...

    Facebook started as a social network. It is fast becoming a marketing platform.

      I agree. Business marketing is what took Facebook way beyond MySpace.

    Facebook has different faces. I have seen people who are so kind in real life who create fake account to be so rude!
    I am using Facebook to connect with my friends and promote my online contents. I know some others who use Facebook to play games and challenge others users.
    Fan page and ads make it a little bit commercial.

    I can conclude that it is the thing it born to be, a social network with good and bad side!

    Facebook is the biggest social media/network portal in the universe. As far as content and quality of posts are concern, it's entirely user driven
