I like it mainly because I can keep up with my friends, family, and car friends all in one place. If I need people back home to keep an eye on my dad, I can post a message and I know at least a handful of people living near him will see it. I chat more with my cousins now than I ever have and actually meet up with them when I'm home. We hadn't done that since my grandma passed away in 1999. I plan an annual reunion with some of the girls from my high school. A few of us hadn't seen each other in 20 years! We had our 3rd one last month.Diana - I was and still am lost in the Facebook world.
Beginning to like it more and more each time I visit..
But I'm social. It's definitely not for everyone and like any other place on the internet, if you post something, it's etched in internet land for someone to drag up at some point. Usually I post my silly, random crap and it's no problem. I haven't filled out my current workplace for a reason and I am vague about exactly who I work for. Not that it protects me by any means should I be stupid enough to post something my company would dislike, but it gives me a little separation between my employer and me. Most of my information and posts are not public. Sometimes, even people I know aren't able to send me a friend request! And I have fully blocked a few people where they can't even tell I exist and I can't see them either. Very few people I cut out of my life, but there are a few that overstayed their welcome and needed to go!
