Reasons Why You ‘Like’ Facebook: Some Are Lost Without It

When it comes to Social Networking there have been a number of different things going with Facebook in recent times. We have seen them expanding the Places to a global scale as well as it becoming a place where you can pick up an organ donor.

Now we wanted to talk to you a little bit about some of the reasons why you Like Facebook and how some people are lost without it. There are some really great functions within Facebook, one of them is that you can get in contact with friends and family that you may not have seen in a long time and you can keep up with the latest news from them.

Over at their author Ruth Manuel-Logan has added an article that talks about some of the reasons why people enjoy it so much. Some of us at OSM use it to make sure we don’t miss people’s birthdays although a few of us played pranks on April Fool’s Day with that functionality. I received around 20 ‘Happy Birthday’ messages from changing my birthday to April 1st.

Some of you paranoid parents will also be using it to keep tabs on the kids, I know that on more than one occasion I have used it to keep an eye on my younger sisters to make sure they weren’t getting up to mischief. Unfortunately another great thing about it if you have lots of time to kill it can really eat it up. If you are short of time it can be a pain, you can play games, chat to friends and also keep up with your friends latest pictures from their night out and all sorts of other things too.
