Disadvantages: Sometimes technical issues
Facebook is an online social networking site giving everyone the opportunity to make a profile and interact with other friends/businesses who have also made a profile.
I think Facebook is a great concept- I do however think that whilst everyone expects technology to 'keep up with the times' Facebook are constantly changing things around and adding things much to the annoyance of lots of their users! I wouldn't mind if Fcebook worked smoothly through the changes but it seems that as soon as something new is brought in, one or more features stop working correctly. I think they would encourage more people to be loyal and use it more if they could trust that Facebook would ensure smooth running and blip free networking on the site.
There are many good features on Facebook- private messaging (like email) a chat option (like MSN and similar) a place to store countless photos, and one of the major things it has going for it is the ability to advertise and even operate a business within the site.
It is major advertising for a company and the sheer numbers of people you can reach through Facebook is quite phenomenal.
Yes there are a few issues sometimes (not receiving notifications, issues with uploading pictures, posts disappearing) but on the whole it is generally a good place to meet and interact with people and small (and large) businesses and companies. And best of all IT'S FREE!!!
Summary: A good experience, positive outweighs the negative
