Disadvantages: Highly addictive
The whole world is on facebook - except my mum. Shes the only person I know who has never used a computer, and therefore has avoided being sucked in to this hugely popular social networking site.
Facebook has rapidly grown in popularity in recent years, probably due to its user friendly and hugely addictive format.
Within seconds you can alert all your friends to how you are feeling by posting status updates, or share photos and video links with the world.
Fot those with even more time on their hands, you can also send a variety of virtual requests such as hugs and kisses, or own a virtual farm where you can buy and sell your produce!
Facebook really comes into its own if you have family and friends abroad, like me. It saves me lots of time and money on photo processing, as I can just post pictures on here instead.
That way everyone can see them - except of course my mum!
As with any web based activity, its advisable to be careful when you accept people as friends, especially if you are sharing private information.
I know people who have been sacked when they have put unfavourable comments about their jobs on the site, forgetting they had accepted their boss as their friend! The same goes with photos that you would prefer not to share with every Tom, Dick and Harry, although you can use privacy settings to restrict access.
I have friends on facebook who have 500 online buddys, and maybe Im being very cynical but I dont believe anyone has that many real friends.
I, on the other hand, only accept people I know and have met, and find this works very well for me.
All in all this site is very addictive and could take up a lot of your spare time, whether or not you let it is up to you...
Summary: A great site for keeping in touch.
