It's a great way to keep friends and family in the loop of the small details in your life. It allows people a way in which to express the small things in their day-to-day without hundreds of intrusive or seemingly-vain phone calls or e-mails. Somehow, a mass e-mail to all your friends and relatives that you just found fifty dollars on the sidewalk seems incredibly self-involved. But as a Facebook status update, people will be right there with you.

People always catch the news, whether they check their favorite news feed on the Internet or just turn on the Nightly News when they get home from work. There are many ways to access the happenings in the world but, until websites like Facebook came along, there were no good ways to keep abreast of all the events in your friends' lives. Now you have a website that broadcasts important (and, more often, not-so-important) goings-on in the world of the people you know but don't necessarily talk to on a regular basis. I think of Facebook as the Friend News Network. And lest you complain that much of the updates on Facebook are inane, wouldn't you rather hear about what someone's having for lunch than another story about Tiger Woods' affairs?

Facebook has definitely reinforced and reconnected old friendships; friendships that may have otherwise never been rekindled. Facebook has been directly responsible for numerous lunches and dinners with people I haven't been in contact with for fifteen or twenty years.

facebook has connected me with several people I have not heard from in quite a while.
It is a great way to keep in touch leave a message at an odd hour of the morning or night. I am sometimes up at 4am...not many folks would appreciate a call from me, just to catch up on the going ons in their lives.

Facebook is an amazing way to keep in contact with people! It's easy for me (I'm in college) to keep in contact with other people in my classes. It's just a website for fun! If you're worried about being "stalked" you should change your privicy settings! You also have to accept a friend request in order for somebody to be able to look at your page. If you don't like Facebook or are against it, then don't get one!

The settings do not default to the highest level of privacy. Many people who use facebook are not internet or security savvy and give up a lot of information that they ought to keep private.

some abuse this easy access to the outside world and seem to think that we all need to know the mundane things of their everyday live. I really do not care of you just ate a bowl of cereal with a banana.
